Welcome to Week 8 of the CAL!
This week will be the last week we will be making squares and appliques! Next week will be all about joining the squares and making the border. This has been such a rewarding experience to get to see crocheters get together and make something memorable.
The wreath applique is fairly simple, but from what I’ve seen in the Facebook group – I know some of you will spruce it up and I can’t wait to see all the creativity!
I know many of you are wondering when and if there will be a next crochet along and I can say I’m in the planning stages! I’m bouncing ideas back and forth and figuring out when and how long it will take place. I will be asking in the Facebook group for thoughts/suggestions – if you aren’t a part of the yarn friends community yet you can join here.
This week we will be working up 8 granny squares along with the Wreath Applique.
All the patterns and video tutorials that you will need are below.
