How the 2019 Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along Works
Every Monday and Thursday from October 3 through December 12, 2019, we’ll share a free crochet pattern that’s perfect for a winter holiday gift or decoration. You can make these projects to keep or to gift while chatting with other crocheters in our groups.
Now in its fifth year, the Holiday Stashdown CAL is hosted by the CAL Central groups on Facebook and Ravelry. And, because crochet alongs are more fun with prizes, we’ve reached out to some of our favorite brands to get some amazing end-of-CAL giveaway prizes. Don’t forget to scroll to the end of this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on December 30, 2019 to enter for your chance to win!

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.
