Hi Crocheters! Clare of bobwilson123 hosts an annual Christmas Eve Cast On Event on YouTube and this year she chose the Basket Weave stitch pattern design from my blog to be the stitch she uses for her Cast On Project! I’m going to include everything you need to know to join this event in the post below, including links to Clare’s videos and where you can find her online. I hope you have time to join in and to use up some of your scraps and stashed yarn to make the Christmas Eve Cast On Project.
Christmas Eve Cast On Event 2017
Below you will find Clare’s Introduction Video where she explains how the Christmas Eve Cast On Event works. There is no pressure to complete your project on Christmas Eve either – this event continues throughout the year so you can take your time to make something big like a blanket – or, if you just want to try the stitch and have a fun evening with other Crocheters, you can make something small like a dishcloth.
Clare lets you know all the important details like the hook size and the yarn weights she is using for her project; where you can share your project photos online and which Facebook Group you can join to discuss your group project with other Crocheters from all around the world. Clare also includes information about the projects you can make with the stitch, as well as, an alternate project you can make for the Christmas Eve Cast On Event if you are not ready to tackle the Basket Weave stitch right now.
The Christmas Eve Cast On 2017 video is available below:
