The You’ve Got Options Crochet Along is the first crochet along of 2020 hosted in the CAL Central Facebook and Ravelry groups. We’ve brought together twelve of the top crochet designers out there to bring you free crochet patterns for squares. Each of the squares is available in 2 sizes, so you’ve got options (literally) for each project. Join us to make fun granny square projects, chat with other crocheters, and enter to win fabulous prizes!

How the You’ve Got Options Crochet Along Works
Every Monday from January 6 through March 23, 202, we’ll share a free crochet pattern for a square available in both 6″ (15 cm) and 12″ (30 cm) sizes. These squares can be used to make pillows, blankets, garments, and more. You can make granny square projects to keep, for gifts, to sell, or to donate to charity while chatting with other crocheters in our groups and entering to win giveaway prizes!
We will have some amazing prizes for our end-of-CAL giveaway. More details will be added to this post later in January. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end of this post by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 29, 2020!
