CAL – Getting Ready for Week 1

Less than 1 week until the official start of the Sweet Kiwi Crochet-Along, and there’s a couple of things to do to get ready!

#1: Head over to the ‘Templates’ post in the Crochet-Along section of the website and decide which blanket you’re going to make. Click on the picture and you can print it off, or email me and I’ll send you a PDF copy. Keep in mind, if you don’t want to use a template you don’t have to! Be creative and make it your own. Just be sure to use the same granny square pattern and to share your pictures!

#2: Once you have your pattern selected, check under the picture to see what colors of yarn you will need. Some have 2 different colors, others have 10. Now hit the store and stock up! Because I haven’t made any of these blankets yet, I’m not able to recommend how much yarn to buy at this point. I’m hoping that some of you will be kind enough to keep track of how much yarn you use in each color and let me know so I can provide that information to people in the future!

#3: Join the Ravelry Sweet Kiwi Crochet-Along Group and ‘Like’ Sweet Kiwi Crochet on Facebook so that you can ask questions of other people working on the project and so you can see everyones progress! Each week I’ll post about the progress people are making, feel free to ask questions in the comments there too and I will try to get to them!

#4: Get excited, and check back on Monday for the first assignment!!!
