Crochet-A-Long 2021

Filet Fantastic Crochet Along 2021

STARTING 5 MARCH 2021!

The brand new Keep Calm and Crochet On UK crochet along (CAL) for 2021 will be starting soon!

Filet Fantastic is a no sew, uniquely constructed, large blanket that will be released in 12 parts. I’ve taken the old crochet technique of filet crochet and incorporating it into a new modern design. And the best part is that although filet crochet looks fancy it’s created with only two basic stitches so it’s a perfect CAL for crochet newbies.

I do hope you’ll come and crochet along with us!

Keep up to date with the details via the following links:

This pattern will be free here on the blog but it will also be available in an e-book on Ravelry. There will be a charge for the downloadable PDF e-book (payable once). This PDF will have the full pattern descriptions, charts and information all in one place.

❤️🧡💛 Purchase the CAL e-Book on Ravelry  💚💙💜
