2023 Crochet with Me Temperature Afghan CAL Season 1 Day 8

2023 Crochet with Me Temperature Afghan CAL Season 1 Day 8



Welcome to the 2023 Crochet with Me Temperature Afghan Season 1 Day 8!!! This is such and easy crochet along, You may not have started yet or are worried you can keep up… You can start anytime, Do one season(3months) or keep up with us for the full year! Each day only takes about 20 minutes, so it is easy to catch up!

One row a day is so easy and I am finding I want to crochet more… So I have been designing several new projects… I can’t wait to share them soon! Don’t forget to check out more Free Pattens, Paid Patterns or the past Crochet with Me CAL’s at the top of the page!

As a reminder, this temperature afghan is a 7 row repeat project, but rows 1 and 2 are not part of the repeat. Over the first 9 rows, there will be a post for each day to get you through the first repeat section. After the first 9 days you will continue to do the 7 row repeat throughout. I will post my weekly progress photos and fun posts each week.

Q & A

  • Do I need to use the Hobby Lobby I Love Yarn? – No, you can use any brand and either use colors that are the same tone or make up your own color scheme
  • What if my temperatures are lower or higher than in the range posted? – You can adjust your range by moving the color scale up or down. If you want to use a smaller range, you can use smaller increments too and use less yarn colors. I have adjusted my personal scale to fit my local area and the sample of mine is below.
  • How does a 4 Season project work? – A season is a 3 month period, you can stop at the end or each season or continue and make 2 seasons together or continue and make the full year. You can also make each season and join them together later.
  • How do you know what temp to use each day? -You can use a weather app such as Weather.com to track your local temps. You can choose a time of day to look, the high or low or the average. Weather.com also has a monthly calendar so you can see the temp history incase you miss a day. Also, you can choose to just use the temps in your hometown or you can use them for where you are each day at the time you choose.
  • Joining new colors? -You will finish off each row leaving your tail. Without turning for the next row you will move to the first stitch on the righthand side and join your yarn. Another words, you will always work/start your new row on the right side.
  • How large will this be? – This temperature afghan project is worked length wise, so it will be approximately 65″ long not including fringe. The width for each season will be approximately 30-36″ wide depending on your tension. If you do a full year the width will be extra large somewhere around 125″, the original 65″ is the same and then you may use the lengthwise direction differently than if you stop at the seasonal lapghan style.
  • How do I join? – EASY, you can just come back here anytime and scroll through the feed, go to the Crochet with Me tab at the top of the page and get all the posts, Use the “Stay Connected” form on the right sidebar to get all posts by email or join the Beatrice Ryan Facebook CAL Group and posts are in the pinned area there.
  • What if I am behind? – You can get all of your daily historical temperatures on Weather.com and catch up!
  • Why are my stitch counts getting off? – Make sure when doing the fl dc that you don’t do your next bl sc in the stitch behind the fl dc. This will cause extra stitches.
  • Prizes? – Head to the Material List Post for all the info on the prizes

I have been using this lovely magnetic fridge calendar to track my temps and all of my life events,,, Love this one! Click Here for the Amazon link!


Above is a broad range of colors and temperature guide you can use! Of course, you can move your temperature range around to suit your area or even use less colors.

**Since my home town temperatures are within a range from lows of 10 degrees to highs of upper 90’s, I am going to use the daily average for myself. In order to use all of the yarn colors I purchased(25 colors), I have listed how I varied my temp chart increments. You can change yours up too if you like to get more or less colors. The above picture is just a suggestion of yarn colors and temperatures.

2023 Crochet with Me Temperature Afghan CAL Season 1 Day 8/Row 8 Instructions

Today for me in Mt. Shasta California, The Low was 31 degrees, High was 39 degrees …. My color today for the average is 35 degrees, On my personalized chart that is Pink again for today, 3rd day in a row!

It Rained/Slushed all night… It sounded like reindeer were walking on my roof all night! When I woke up the sun was barely peaking through, then it started to rain again… California was in such drought this is really a great thing.. but as many of you know… Flooding is also a horrible thing, many parts of the state are having major issues!

My back yard looks about the same, maybe more of a larger pond of slush than yesterday?? 2-3 feet of snow will cover it soon!

Ziggy told me she wanted a Summertime Day, Looked out the window for anything interesting, then decided to take a nap under one of my crochet blankets!

Love this cat!
