Wow! What great responses we’ve gotten on this crochet along (CAL)!! I am so thrilled to see the abundance of interest. If this is your first time visiting, welcome! Please check out the original announcement here – it contains some basic information about this CAL. And if you have not seen the introduction video by Ester of It’s All in a Nutshell, you’ve got to go check it out!
What Will It Look Like?
I am soooo excited to show you my CAL sample in its entirety! This (exchange the center with your favorite block) is what we will be working on together starting on August 9, 2015!
I think one of the things that makes this CAL very special is it incorporates YOUR favorite block in the center. You pick your center block and we will crochet along around that center to make a giant granny square (or rectangle if you prefer). I chose Tropical Delight as my center (you can read more about my center block here). The video tutorial is now available by Esther of It’s All in a Nutshell.
I have prepared a separate page with more information on center blocks here.

Done with Your Center?
Show us your center block on the Around-the-Bases CAL event page on FB CAL – Crochet A Long group and/or this discussion thread on Ravelry!

Click on your account, click “projects” at the right top corner, and click on the “add project” button.)
Can’t wait to see everyone’s beautiful center block choices!!
