Choose Your Own #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 for July – Cocoon Cardigans

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

It’s time to decide which project we will make for our July 2017 CAL!  We need to vote this week to decide which one of these great crochet projects we will be making beginning July 1st! Adding your vote to the widget at the end of the post by clicking on the little heart in the right-hand corner of the photo of the project you want to make, is all you need to do! The widget will add everyone’s votes together and notify us of the project you have selected to crochet during the month of July!

Remember to add our Group CAL hashtag to the tags on your Ravelry Project Pages too 🙂 #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 so we can pop over to see how you are progressing as well! Here’s where they will show up: Ravelry #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 Projects

If you are new to the Choose Your Own 2017 CAL Adventure, here is what we are doing:

For our Crochet With Us CAL Group we have decided to do CALs a little bit differently this year. We have decided to go with the theme of “Choose Your Own 2017 CAL Adventure.”

We polled the CWU CAL group to ask you which types of projects you were most interested in and from your answers we are going to create 1 year of monthly CALs you can participate in. Each month we will give you 3 projects to choose from and you get to vote for your favorite. This will decide the pattern we will make for the month.

The voting will begin on 2nd Saturday of the month prior. You will have 1 week to vote for your favorite project. We will then announce the CAL project on the 3rd Saturday of the month. You will have about 1 week to gather the supplies you will need to make the project and will have the entire month to work on the project, create your project pages in Ravelry, and share your progress in the event created in the CWU CAL Facebook group.
