2018 Crochet Alongs. The 2018 CAL List

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

Every year I like to do a roundup of the different free CALS ( crochet-a-longs ) taking place for the year.  I update this CAL list as I find more crochet alongs throughout the year, so feel free to comment with names and links of any extra cals you know which are taking place 🙂

The best part about CALs is they are usually still available after the CAL ends so you can make these anytime!

A fantastic place to visit for CAL information (and participation!) is 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!
