CALs - Crochet-alongs 2015

As it is definitely the time to be making blankets/afghans, due to to the wintery weather, I thought I would give you a round up of  new CALs that I have found.  Those readers in the Southern Hemisphere, don't despair, you can start planning your Winter projects now and dream of cooler weather.

1st block on Moogly's CAL

First up we have the 2015 Moogly Afghan Crochet-Along hosted by Moogly's Tamara.  There is going to be a new 12" block pattern every 2 weeks, totalling 24 blocks.  There has also been a Ravelry group set up so you can see other people's blocks and colours used etc.  All the details are here.

Lookwhatimade 2015 CAL

The second one I want to alert you to is Lookwhatimade's 2015 CAL.  This one is a little different, in that it you end up with a continuous square blanket (so no joining squares required!).  Dedri gives you the option of 3 different gauges of yarn, so there are 3 different sizes of blanket at the end.  A new set of instructions are published every Sunday for 20 weeks.  All the details are here.

Beatriceryandesigns CAL

This is the first instalment from Beatrice Ryan Designs 2015 CAL.  Beatrice has designed a retro style afghan which will end up being 48" x 60".  There are weekly posts for each block and facebook and pinterest groups have been set up.  All the details are here.

Flowers Abound CAL

This CAL hasn't started yet, but it is about to.  It is from Shelley at  There will be instructions for various 'flower' blocks and you make some of each design and end up with a lap blanket.  There is a Ravelry group set up. All the details are here.

jessieathome CAL

This a picture of the complete afghan from Jessieathome CAL.  This is a crib blanket size.  Patterns are posted every week for 14 weeks. There has been facebook and ravelry groups set up.  Jessie will choose a winner out of the completed blanket photos and award a prize.  All the details are here.

I hope this has given you some ideas. After writing this post I am thoroughly confused about which one I will begin!
