2016 Crochet A Longs (CAL 2016 )

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


This CAL 2016 post will be updated as I learn of more CROCHET A longs taking place this year.

Do you love crochet-a-longs? They can be a great way to use up your scrap yarn! They can also be a great way to try something new – working together with a group to finish a complete project by a specified date – with others available to help you each step of the way!

Feel free to leave me a comment below with new crochet-a-long links as your find them too!

My friend Dedri introduced me to a fantastic resource available online from the Facebook CAL – Crochet Along Group – if you use Google Calendars they have developed a CAL Calendar and you can simply click to add the CAL events you want – directly to your own Google Calendar! Here’s the link: Crochet A Long Calendar on Google.

If you would like join the official Facebook CAL – Crochet Along Group you can do that here: CAL – Crochet Along Group on Facebook. It really is the place to be if you love CALs and Facebook too!
