2019 Holiday Stashdown CAL Schedule
The Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along is a mystery CAL where projects are kept secret until the date of release. Each project is made with one skein of yarn, or less than 100 yards of yarn in each of the colors used, so you can feel free to make these with yarn in your stash. (If you want to buy yarn, that’s ok with us, too. We love yarn!) This list will be updated during the CAL to include links to each pattern as it is released.
