Announcing a Ripple Crochet-A-Long

Marie Segares, crochet designer and author of the Underground Crafter blog, is leading a month-long CAL called. . . get ready. . . Ripple Mania! Now please try to imagine that announced in a very dramatic rolling bass ‘radio voice’. . . Ripple.! Mania.! Doesn’t the name alone make you want to get involved!? But wait. . . there’s more! lol

There are going to be free ripple patterns each week! – beginning next Wednesday, Oct. 24. You don’t have to be a Ravelry member to download the pdf (updated weekly on the CAL’s Ravelry pattern page), although I have no idea why you wouldn’t want to become part of Ravelry’s community, if you aren’t already – there’s so much wonderful information and inspiration being shared there! Be sure to get the patterns early because on Nov. 21, when the CAL ends, they will all convert to a “for sale” pattern e-book.

Please don’t be misled by all this talk of patterns. This special ripple CAL is about much more than just patterns, free or otherwise! It also covers how to choose a color palette (in this week’s pdf) and design ripple variations, photo tutorials and much more. I’m excited that some of my ripples are in Ripple Mania’s Inspiration Gallery, which is overflowing with ideas! Check out the full schedule of ripple topics here on Marie’s blog or on the Underground Crafter group’s discussion thread where Ravelry members are already chatting about the CAL.

Can you believe this will be my first CAL?! I say it’s About Time! lol. I’ve crocheted for only. . . how long now?. . . forty-five plus years?!

I hope you’ll be joining with me!
