Announcing the Layers of Texture Infinity Scarf Crochet-a-Long!

Layers of Texture Infinity Scarf Crochet-a-Long with Underground Crafter and Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) - July 18 - August 29, 2016There’s something about summer heat that makes me want to host a crochet-a-long. It seems like we all need a little extra motivation to crochet in the warm weather, so why not do it with online friends?

This post contains affiliate links. Yarn for the sample was generously provided by Lion Brand.

I’m really exited about this CAL because I’m co-hosting it with the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA). I’ve been a member for the better part of a decade (maybe longer, but who’s counting?) and I’m also a volunteer blogger at CGOA Now!, the Guild’s blog. It’s a great organization, and if you aren’t already a member, you can join here. There are a lot of reasons to join, but my favorites are the subscription to Crochet! magazine, the discounts at national retailers, and the comraderie. (If you’re interested in earning money from your crochet, or already do, there are even some special benefits for professional members.)

I’ve been holding onto this pattern for a while, waiting for just the right time to share it! Let me tell you about more about it and the crochet-a-long.

Layers of Texture Infinity Scarf Crochet-a-Long with Underground Crafter and Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) - July 18 - August 29, 2016About the Layers of Texture Infinity Scarf

Explore intermeshing crochet (also known as interlocking crochet or double filet crochet) by making this reversible sampler infinity cowl. The pattern includes 6 different stitch patterns.

Intermeshing crochet seems hard at first, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be happy you tried it! You need only basic crochet skills since intermeshing crochet uses just chains and double crochet stitches. This unisex project is a great way to get a head start on your own fall accessories or holiday gift-making, or to make something special to donate to charity.

If you can’t wait to learn more about intermeshing crochet, check out this roundup of free beginner tutorials, or these posts highlighting the beauty of intermeshing crochet.

You can get a complete supply list at the end of this post.
