Winter '16 Holiday Crochet Along: All the Stars Above - Part One

Saturday, October 1, 2016

Are you ready?  I am so excited to get this crochet along going, so let's get our hooks moving on the lovely All the Stars Above pattern.  

If you'd like, you can see the entire crochet along schedule & details about getting started here.
All the Stars Above is a beautiful, L-shaped shawl made using a large hook and DK weight yarn for elegant drape.  If you're familiar with the star stitch, you'll adore its relaxing repetition.  If you're new to the star stitch, you'll have a new skill to add to your crochet knowledge base.  

We'll be crocheting this beauty in three parts: doing half in one week, half in the second week, (pausing a week to catch up), and doing all the finishing in the final week.  So by the end of October, you should have a lovely shawl to wear or share.
Your instructions for this week:  

1. Download the CGOA Across the Board 2016 e-book.  (free to CGOA Members)

2. Crochet rows 1-33 of All the Stars Above
3. Share progress pictures and ask questions in the Facebook group and in our Ravelry thread.  We'll help each other out!
Stitch with us!  It is not too late to join! 
Join one of our groups and join in on the fun! 

You Could Win!
We are very fortunate that we have several excellent sponsors who have really stepped up to make this CAL lots of fun for us!  At the end of the CAL, you can enter to win a fantastic prize package!!

Kraemer Yarns is generously offering two prize packages, each containing three skeins of Tatamy Tweed DK weight yarn!  If you win, your prize will consist of either two skeins of Rose and one skein of Taupe or two skeins of Blue Jeans and one skein of Taupe.   

"Tatamy Tweed is a D.K. weight, easy-care, cotton/acrylic blend. It comes in 28 lovely colors ranging from bright and playful to neutral earthy tones, all with small flecks spun right into the yarn. Because Tatamy Tweed is machine washable, it is an excellent choice for everyday garments. It is fabulous for summer sweaters, tops, hats, and even skirts! When you don't want the overwhelming warmth of wool, Tatamy Tweed is a cool, easy-care solution. Made in the U.S.A."

Excitingly, there are no shipping restrictions on this prize, so it is open to our friends worldwide!  You should definitely check out the Kraemer Yarns webpage and see what they have to offer.  It's a fun place to get lost dreaming... 

And, of course, thanks so much to each of our giveaway sponsors:
