Leudinghause Crochet-Along Sneak Peek | KT and the Squid
I’m so excited to announce my next Crochet-Along starts August 31, 2016! Next week (8/24) I will post the full supply list as well as reveal the design. You will then have 1 week to gather your supplies and pick a size to make. The crochet-along will run through September 28th. In this post I will explain how you can follow along and how it will all work.
First, take a look at your sneak peek. This is all you get for now 😉
There’s a few ways you can follow along…
Purchase the PDF
Click HERE to purchase now. With this PDF there are a few things to note.
1. You do NOT have to purchase the PDF to participate (I’ll explain below).
2. If you purchase the PDF before or during the Crochet-Along the pattern will NOT be complete until the last week of the crochet-along.
3. You only need to purchase the pattern ONCE (some people last year thought it was a weekly thing).
Each week you will get more instructions and by the end of the CAL you will have a completed pattern. When you purchase from Ravelry make sure you are SIGNED IN. That way the pattern will go right into your library. Once the pattern is in your library you will receive the weekly updates. After the pattern has been updated for the week you will need to go to your Ravelry library and download the pattern for the week.
Follow on my Blog
Like I mentioned, you do NOT need to purchase the pattern. I will post the pattern in crochet-along form here on my blog. Each week there will be a new post with pattern instructions for the week. Again, it’s completely FREE.
This year I decided to add videos! A few people requested this last year so I figured, what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. I recorded myself making one of my samples. Bare with me, I’m new to this whole video thing 🙂 But overall, I think they will be a great resource for you.
FREE Facebook Group
If you’re on Facebook be sure to join my FREE Facebook group. Last year, we started this group for the crochet-along but recently we’ve opened it up to anything crochet or knit related. So even if you’re not sure you want to do the crochet-along right now you can still join in on the fun we’re having in there.
This is a lively and helpful group. If you have any specific questions you can jump in and ask! It’s also a great place to share your progress.
Follow on Social Media
Be sure to follow me on social media. That way you wont miss out on any posts! You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Like I already said. I’m so excited for this crochet-along to get started! You don’t want to miss out on next weeks post because there will be an AMAZING giveaway.
See you next week!
Can’t wait!!..I’ve been looking for sweater and vest patterns, so great timing for me.
Woohoo! Can’t wait!
I purchased the pattern before I saw it. The underarm/upper sleeves look WAY too snug for me. Do you have a suggestion to alter it? I’m not good with adjusting patterns. Thanks
Adjusting a pattern can be a little tricky at first so would an easy fix be to go up a size?
If not you can make the arm opening taller (add more rows). Then you will need to make the sleeve top wider to match. You an do that by adding more increase rows when we get there.
