2023 Spring CAL Week 1: Wisteria Trellis Throw

Welcome to the 2023 Fiber Flux Spring Crochet Along...yay! Today marks week one of the CAL and we'll be learning about the lovely project we'll be making...the Wisteria Trellis Throw!  This blanket is easy and a wonderfully relaxing crochet project!

We will be going over a few things today to begin:
  • Introduction to the project
  • Supplies
  • Sizing
  • Schedule of the CAL
  • Where to connect with other makers

The CAL will be divided over the next few 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:

First things first...the supplies!

Materials Needed:
  • 5.5 mm "I" crochet hook
  • Approximately 1476 yards of #4/medium worsted weight yarn (I used Color Theory by Two of Wands/Lion Brand--2 Balls of "Tourmaline" 2 of "Provence" 2 balls of "Bone").
