May CAL Embossed Crochet Vest Week Two

Posted on May 15, 2017 by Lianka Azulay | 0 Comments

WOW! What an amazing kickoff week we had for our Furls May CAL! I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the love and joy the CAL participants are sharing. Here are the first week highlights:

Embossed Crochet Vest Number One on Ravelry

Once more we made #1 on Ravelry (And that’s no mean feat, with so many amazing patterns in their catalog!)

Groot the Crochet Assistant of Furls May CAL


We released Part One of the video tutorial for the vest and this week we have released Part Two of the video tutorial (at the end of this post).

We had a ton of fun on our Facebook Group “Fun with Furls,” sharing all things crochet, fun bits, beautiful Furls hooks pictures and yarn galore. The post about the 3D printed Groot who loves his Candy hook was the most popular this week in our group. If you haven’t joined it, come on over! Join HERE

Next week will be Part One of the Embossed Crochet Vest Pattern.  If you haven't already, make sure you add this pattern to your Ravelry favorites.

What are we doing this week…

In this second week of our CAL, I’m bringing you a BIG surprise! In the original schedule we were going to post only the second part of our Embossed Crochet Hexagon Motif video tutorial. However, in the spirit of Mother’s Day (week, month) and with the amazing help of my dear Technical Editor and Pattern Support Specialist, Janet Smith, we put together a brand-new pattern for an Embossed Crochet Hexagon Motif Handbag, that will be available to download for all CAL participants!

The pattern includes instruction for the full and half size motifs, bottom and assembly.  

The download will be available at no charge for the duration of our CAL from today, May 15 through May 31, 2017.

A Note About Comments

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
