Crochet Alongs

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

A crochet along is a group event where participants work together on common crochet projects along a predetermined theme.

There are many groups online that host events all year long, like CAL Central (on Facebook). Our group hosts a variety of smaller sized CAL projects each year; with free patterns and end-of-CAL prizes. Join our group here.

Other crocheters work on large projects like afghans all year long. Some work on temperature blankets, others on afghan squares that are then seamed together to make a finished blanket (like the annual Moogly CAL).

Amy (The Stitchin’ Mommy) and I cohost the Scarf of the Month CAL and the Hat of the Month CAL each month. This CAL gives you 6 free patterns each month for scarves and hats that are perfect for donating or gift giving. See our 2021 projects here and here.

Besides hosting a CAL, I also love participating in Crochet Alongs (CALs). I enjoy working together on projects with our crochet community and it is fun challenging myself to come up with new free crochet patterns along specific themes for others to make.

Most of these CAL events have free patterns that remain available after the crochet along ends so be sure to visit the other patterns included in the collections too!

For each year I have listed the CALs I have designed patterns for below. If there is no link available the CAL has not yet started this year. For those with links, you can click through for the free pattern I designed and to get the other patterns submitted for that event.

You can also revisit the CAL Lists for the years. The Crochet Along Lists include CALs that took place online that I did not participate in myself. Have fun finding new projects to make! xo Rhondda

  1. Hi Deborah! Thank you for reminding me 🙂 I’ve updated with 2023 and 2024 now – I will try to create a current CAL list for 2024 CALS in the next week or so. Best wishes, Rhondda

  2. Is there a planned update for this page to reflect 2023 CALs?
