Twisted Cindy Set CAL

Hello everyone!  Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you are here to join me in taking part in my Twisted Cindy Set CAL!  In this CAL or Crochet-A-Long it will be taking place in the Facebook Group Connie’s Crochet Guild.  I am SO excited because this is the first CAL Connie Elder has done inside the group and she has asked me to host it!  Please be aware that you will need to be a member of Connie’s Crochet Guild to take part in this CAL.  If you are NOT a member you can join here.

This page contains affiliate links.  You can make a purchase using these links that I provide where I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you.)  These are needed to keep my website and pattern stores going so I can provide quality designs just for you!

In this CAL I will be sharing my Twisted Cindy Messy Bun Set crochet patterns which contains a Messy Bun Hat, a Cowl, and Fingerless Gloves.  The sizes in this set range from 0-6 months up to Adult Large.  I hope you will be able to find a size that is right for you, your family or friends!  With the weather getting cooler this CAL is a great way to help you get a head start on your cooler weather accessories!

Each Wednesday of the month, starting Sept. 16th I will be adding a pattern from the set.  The first week will be the Hat, the second week (Sept 23rd) will be the Cowl and the third week (Sept 30th) will be the Gloves.  I will post the web address at Connie’s Crochet Guild on each Wednesday.

On each Sunday I will post a reminder of what is happening each week.  On Sunday I will also have a place marked where you can share your WIPs for each week.  If you have ANY questions, Sunday’s post will be the perfect place for you to ask them.  If you prefer you can also email me at jo@joscraftyhook.com.

If you would still like to participate in the CAL but you would prefer to download a pdf copy of the crochet pattern you can purchase the Twisted Cindy Messy Bun Hat Set for 50% off at Ravelry.  You can use the Coupon Code:  TWISTEDCAL and receive 50% off the crochet pattern.  If you prefer to use Etsy, the pattern is already 50% off, no coupon code needed.
