Crochet Alongs

Crochet Alongs are a fun way to learn new crochet techniques and stitches and work together with the crochet community on projects.

CALS often offer support for participants. You may even be working on the same crochetalong project as crocheters from all around the world. You can share your progress, provide support and chat about crochet related things!

There are free crochet-a-longs and CALs that are organized around a pattern that is available for purchase, or even as a full crochet kit, including the yarn and pattern.

Best part of crochet alongs is the patterns tend to be available after the CAL is over so you can work on them at your own pace, without worrying about a deadline! You also know the pattern has been fully tested, especially with so many others making it and sharing their finished photos online.

Crochet Alongs

Oombawka Design Crochet has hosted, cohosted and guest designed patterns for a number of Crochet Alongs.
