I am excited to announce our first Crochet Along for 2019! Designer Bonnie Barker will share tips and show us how to crochet each different cable pattern used in her stunning Celtic Diamond Wrap featured in the February 2019 issue.
The Crochet Along will be 3 weeks long and will be available on the Crochet World Facebook page beginning on January 23.
The Crochet Along video will be posted each week, January 23 and 30 and February 6 at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Bonnie will also host a Facebook Live event to answer your questions and finish up the CAL on February 20.
You will need to purchase the February 2019 issue of Crochet World as the pattern for the Celtic Diamond Wrap will not be part of the CAL.
You will also need approximately 2,000 yards of worsted weight yarn. Bonnie used 10 skeins of Red Heart Chic Sheep by Marly Bird in sterling #5641. I will be crocheting mine with the same yarn using color #5360 suede.
Bonnie’s designs have appeared in Crochet World and Crochet! magazines many times over the years and have become favorites for those of us who love to crochet cables.
Her Lisdoonvarna Shawl is still just as popular today as it was when it first appeared in the Winter 2013 issue of Crochet! magazine!
The Hills of Ireland Throw which first appeared in the December 2015 issue of Crochet World is a favorite with afghan lovers. And recently Bonnie’s cable design, Celtic Cross Cable Throw was featured in the December 2018 issue of Crochet World.
With over 10 pattern books and dozens of patterns featuring her lovely crochet cable designs to her credit, this is one CAL you won’t want to miss! I hope you will join us!
