2019 Fiber Flux Holiday CAL, Merry Little Advent Calendar, Part 4: Calendar Applique Shapes


Welcome back to the 2019 Fiber Flux Holiday Crochet Along! Today marks part 4 of the CAL and we'll be learning about the special project we'll be making...the Merry Little Advent Calendar!  This project is a lovely seasonal project and makes a wonderful keepsake. We will be going over a few things today for part 4:

  • How to crochet the star, circle, heart, snowflake, and square shapes for the calendar
  • Where to connect with other makers


The CAL will be going on through out the month of November so that the calendar will be useable when December arrives, so keep checking back for more CAL updates!

*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 for the tutorial + more information:
