Welcome to our Christmas CAL! Lisa and Lynda are back again and have created an amazing Christmas blanket that you will love creating. 

The CAL will run over 6 weeks and each Friday we will release the next part of the pattern on the blog. 

We have a great Facebook group set up for the CAL where you can share your progress photos, get advice and chat to fellow crocheters.
