The 2020 Crochet Along List

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

If you are looking forward to working on a Crochet Along (CAL) in 2020, you will have many to choose from! I decided to start compiling this list early for you so you can get ready and choose the projects you want to work on in the coming months.

I will update this list with CALs as they are sent to me (or when I hear about them) during the year! If you are hosting, or find out about a published CAL I’ve missed, please message me with the details so I can add it too! You can simply leave a comment on my post and I will update the post with the information!

If you are working on a  Temperature Blanket, be sure to check out my post: Temperature Blankets: Crochet Patterns, Color Charts and Tracking Sheets

Have fun with your yarn this year 🙂 and remember there are many CALs from previous years you can still enjoy working on! The free patterns remain active online and you can work on the projects at your own speed, or work on the projects with a group of friends (online or at your LYS)!

  1. Thank you Angela! I will try to add this to the post this week – for now I will leave it in the comments 🙂 Best wishes on your blogging adventure! Rhondda

  2. Hi newbie blogger here (just hit my first year, yay!) I will be starting a mystery CAL next week for a baby blanket inspired by the pacific northwest. <3

  3. Hi Erinn, I search Google every week for new ones and I also reach out to fellow Designers to ask if they are adding any new CALS that I have not included to my list. It isn’t a perfect science though and I’m sure I’ve missed a few that are available out there! Yes, I agree, summer is a great time for CALs – if you are on Facebook, there is a Crochet Along Group that hosts CALS all year round that you might be interested in. https://www.facebook.com/groups/CALCentral/ Hope this helps! Rhondda

  4. Where do you find your CALs? I’d love to find one that’s being released in June, when I’m not busy with my classes, but I don’t know where to look.
