October Crochet Along

Hello lovely readers!  I am so excited to announce our first CED crochet along!  I gave you three options last week, and here is the winner:

It's the pumpkin from Planet June!  Everyone was really excited about this pattern, as well as the pinecone.  I decided that we could do the pumpkin now, and the pinecone later.  I really hope you join me in this crochet along! 

I am also going to do a little giveaway along with this CAL (you know, crochet along!).  You will win your choice of any single Big Girl Jewelry pattern.   I bet you remember seeing my finished scrubby, right?  Well those were BGJ's patterns.  Check out her etsy and have a look around.  You can choose any of her single patterns if you win!  Personally, I LOVE the Chubby Nubby scrubby.  You can also choose one of the three yarn colors below, as well as the card set.

The yarn options & a cute set of cards (they say rest a minute)
Interested?  I will post more details once I start the CAL. But you can get together your supplies. Here is what you need:
  • Pattern (you can print it out or just pull it up online)
  • Yarn - worsted weight in orange and green or brown.  I am going to use Vanna's Choice, because that is what I have leftover from making a couple pumpkin beanies.
  • Size E Crochet Hook
  • Excitement -- to join in on the fun!
I hope you join us.  Leave a note in the comments if you plan on joining.  We will start crocheting next Monday (10/24) and be finished by that Sunday (Halloween!).

  5. I'm in too, albeit unofficially. I just love the pumpkin and know I won't make it in a reasonable amount of time unless I join you ladies.

  6. I missed the voting. :( But, I am totally in with the pumpkin!

  7. Count me in! I'm already yarn shopping today, guess I'll just have to grab an orange. Can't wait to do my first CAL!
