2018 Fiber Flux Holiday CAL, Cozy Grannies Table Runner: Week 1 Intro & Supplies

Welcome to the 2018 Fiber Flux Holiday Crochet Along...hooray! Today marks week one of the CAL and we'll be learning about the beautiful project we'll be making...the Cozy Grannies Table Runner!  This project was a highly requested item in the Fiber Flux community and I'm so excited we are making a fun & festive table runner this time!  We will be going over a few things to begin:

  • Introduction to the project
  • Supplies
  • Schedule of the CAL
  • Where to connect with other makers

For this CAL (crochet along) we're going to make something a little different that our other holiday crochet alongs...a table runner!  The CAL will be divided over the next three weeks, so we'll tackle each part bit by bit. Scroll down for the schedule with actual dates and what we'll be doing on each day/week.

*This is a self-paced project, so definitely go at the speed you feel most comfortable. The instructional videos and posts will be up forever and you will always be able to go back and watch again and again!

Here is a quick video introduction to the CAL and more information about supplies too:

Add this project to your Ravelry queue by clicking on the button below:

First things first...the supplies!

Materials Needed:
  • 6.5 mm "K" crochet hook
  • Red Heart With Love Yarn-I used about 1/2 of a ball of "Taupe" and 1/4 ball each of "Lettuce" "Berry Red" and "Aran"  Note: you'll definitely have leftovers...but we'll be using them for a bonus (surprise!!) pattern at the end of the CAL!
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors
  • Tape Measure or Ruler (optional)

This is an extremely flexible pattern in terms of placement of the motifs...you can make it longer, wider, circular, etc.  The possibilities are endless!

*Note: if you want to make your table runner larger, more yarn might be needed.
