Cute Crochet Alongs

Posted on


A CAL, or crochet along, is a crochet project done over a course of days, weeks, or even a year, at the same time as lots of other people. Usually they have a theme, and the pattern is released in small snippets. These are some of the cutest ones I’ve found, which are a mix of past, present and future events.

Cute Halloween Crochet Alongs

Amigurumi Adventures from Airali Gray and Irene Strange is a mystery crochet along which happens at Halloween and Christmas, and sometimes in the Summer. The Amigurumi School of Magic started again last week, and happens in five parts, with three patterns each week. I’d definitely recommend this one, past years have been so cute!

Costume Party Crochet Along

The Costume Party CAL is a collaboration between lemonyarncreations, curiouspapaya, onelittleragdoll and wanderingdeer, and is happening at the moment. Each designer is releasing a pattern for a super cute animal in a Halloween costume. My favourite so far is Sir Racha, a cat in a hot sauce costume!

Cute Crochet Along Blanket

If the idea of trying to keep up doesn’t appeal to you, you might like to do an older CAL at your own pace. The Geek Along by Lattes and Llamas happened for 7 years, each with a different theme, with the aim to create a fandom inspired blanket. All the different years’ square patterns are in one place, so you could mix and match different themes to makes your own personalised blanket! The patterns are in graph form, so can be knitted or crocheted.

Cute Christmas Crochet Alongs

Hobbycraft has done several CALs over the years, which can all be found on the Hobbycraft Blog. The Knitcraft Christmas Advent CAL features 25 cute Christmas decoration patterns, including a robot and a narwhal. I think my favourite is the jam jar! The patterns were written by sewing the seeds of love, who has lots more kawaii patterns on their website.

I hope this has provided you with inspiration for a future project!
