AllFreeCrochet’s Pillow Crochet Along

Find your favorite yarn and grab a hook, it’s time for AllFreeCrochet’s first ever Crochet Along! With the spring season headed our way we thought it was a great time to start sprucing up your home. Michael Sellick is our Crochet Along cruise director and will be driving the boat on this terrific project. Whether you are a beginner crocheter or a more advanced hooker, you will love joining us on our crochet journey. And if the waters get choppy, we will encourage each other to keep the ship afloat!

The Project

There are two pillow patterns to choose from in our Crochet AlongEach pillow only takes a few hours to make, but since this is a crochet along we’ll only give you bits and pieces of the pattern throughout a three week period of time. You can choose to make one pattern or both, it’s up to you!

How To Participate

Tune in Wednesdays
Every Wednesday, Michael will be here to share the next step in the Crochet Along. We will be posting the instructions as well as videos right here (see video below), so stay tuned.

Post Your Photos & Make Friends
We will be sharing our progress and would love to see yours too on our new online gallery. Our easy to follow tutorial about Flickr will get you started if you aren’t familiar with the site. As your are working up your new pillow(s), we encourage you to post work in progress photos and meet fellow crochet along pals in the process. You can comment on other people’s photos and encourage them as they will you. Once your pillow is complete, be sure to post your finished product in the gallery.
