December CAL Part 1 - Snow Capped Throw

Posted on December 12, 2016 by Tamara Kelly | 0 Comments

Grab your supplies and let's get crocheting! The holidays are just around the corner, and I can't think of anything better than staying warm under a cozy crocheted blanket! In Part one of our CAL we will talk a bit about gauge, sizing, and make the main portion of the blanket!  When crocheting garments or wearable, gauge can be super important. But with blankets, it's not as big a deal - there's just a lot more wiggle room! The most important thing is that you get fabric coming off the hook that's not too loose or too tight. You don't want a blanket that's full of giant holes, but you also don't want one that's stiff as a board! The official gauge for this blanket is...

November CAL Part One - Crocodile Stitch Fingerless Gloves

Posted on November 21, 2016 by Lianka Azulay | 0 Comments

Do I like to check gauge? Nope. Never did, never will.  When I get a new pattern that I love, I just want to jump in and start crocheting the whole thing, and checking gauge first is tedious and boring and doesn’t immediately make progress on your project in any obvious way. After many gigantic hats and skin-tight sweaters with sleeves two inches too short, I finally learned my lesson. For certain projects, there are just no short cuts. This is one of those. We must check gauge...
