Fall Gift Giving Crochet Along… 12 Weeks of Dishcloths!!!!

Fall Gift Giving Crochet Along… 12 Weeks of Dishcloths!!!!



Are you ready for a super fun Fall Gift Giving Crochet Along? This fall I am presenting a 12 week crochet along that will give you the easy, fun dishcloth patterns that can be used for gift giving, donations or best of all for yourself! See below all the details and follow along right here each Sunday for the weekly pattern!

Details:

Each Sunday, starting later today, I will post a fun, easy dishcloth pattern for you to make. I will be recommending which yarn to use for each pattern. By the end of this CAL you will have 12 different dishcloths to keep or give as gifts! This is just in time for the holiday season and ends right before Thanksgiving. Make as many as you want, in as many color choices that you like!

Do you want your dishcloth pattern in a PDF to print?

Shortly after Thanksgiving, all 12 patterns will be available in one PDF so you can print them out or keep them all in one file. The PDF will be $5.99, and I will post all the information here in early December for that 12 pattern PDF.

How to join this CAL.. It is so easy!!!!

  • You can just come right here to the Beatrice Ryan Designs website each Sunday afternoon and the new pattern will be posted
  • In the right sidebar here on the website you can subscribe to all my pattern posts as they releases by filling out the “STAY CONNECTED” section. The information/link will be delivered to your email.
  • Head to the top of the page to Crochet with Me and find all the crochet along pattern links past and new.
  • The patterns are individually kept in the Free Pattern tab at the top too.
  • Join the Beatrice Ryan Designs Crochet Along Facebook Page that is solely for all of my CAL’s. We have so much fun there. The links are provided each week and we all join in to share our pictures and help with questions.

Prizes:

If you have participated in any of my CAL’s, you know I always do giveaways… This Fall CAL won’t disappoint…

  • Grand Prize – Thanksgiving Weekend I will post fan pictures that are entered to me by email of the finished dishcloths… One lucky winner will receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Here are the rules… By Friday November 25th, 2022 11:59pm PST US you will email me a picture of your finished CAL dishcloths (6 of the patterns minimum) to [email protected] One entry per person. Each entry will be numbered and I will use a Random Number Generator to draw the winner on Sunday November 27th 2022 and post the Fan Gallery and winner that afternoon.
  • Weekly Prizes – This will vary and be open only to fans in the Beatrice Ryan Designs CAL Facebook Group. We will randomly have fun games to enter for gift cards, yarn prizes and various other giveaway items.
