Crochet-A-Long 2023

The Enchanted Wood Crochet Along 2023

There’s a brand new Keep Calm and Crochet On UK crochet along (CAL) for 2023!

Create an enchanted looking blanket with a woodland-inspired new crochet-along (CAL) for 2023. The Enchanted Wood throw blanket is a versatile crochet project which features an intricate collection of textured stitches intertwined together.

Bring the great outdoors indoors using a carefully curated palette of colours and stitches in a project that has plenty of interest as each section emerges – with no sewing together. I do hope you’ll come and crochet along with us!

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

The Keep Calm and Crochet On UK crochet along for 2023 starts with Part 1 on Friday 20 January 2023 and runs for 8 weeks, each Friday, ending on Friday 10 March 2023.

The pattern for this crochet along will be available for free here on the blog but sometimes it’s easier to have a printable PDF to refer to. The whole pattern therefore will also be available in a printer friendly PDF version in my Ravelry store (for a one off payment). Each weekly instalment will become ready for immediate download in either UK or US terms.

A Dutch version of the pattern will be put together by the very lovely Iris from Eenmooigebaar via the link below. Iris has brilliantly translated a range of my patterns before (these are also available on the website) so I’m delighted she’s joining us again this time.
