Like every other crafter out there I like to meet other people who love the same things that I do. Last year I discovered KAL & CALs and I started earmarking ones that I wanted to do one day. For those who have yet to discover the joy a CAL is a crochet along and a KAL is a knit along. Basically one person/ blog/ company picks a pattern and then hosts a CAL. They set up a group for people who are participating to join and talk to each other. They release the pattern in parts either weekly or monthly and they offer tutorial help to complete it.
The thing is there are some really great ones out there but unless you already follow a designer or company that has one you may never find out about it, and never get the joy of making it. So I am going to start a monthly round up of KAL & CALs here. If you have one you want listed please just send me a message at email@example.com and I will get you added!
*NOTE: I am going to be listing the links to the original pages for these projects. I am not going to post the patterns here because that takes away from the Host/ Designers and that’s just rude. Also all pictures I use in these posts will be the official picture that is used on the Host’s page and they receive all credit for the work and the photo. (If I do a project I will make a separate post and let you know that it is my work.)
