It’s the middle of summer, and (at least here in the midwest), the middle of a heat wave. This, of course, means it’s time for a Christmas in July Crochet-Along!

If you’re planning to make any of your holiday gifts this year, it’s never too early to get started. I’ve teamed up with Marie Segares from Underground Crafter, along with 14 other designers, to bring you a month full of free patterns for holiday gifting.

This post includes:

  1. The details of the CAL

The Details

The Christmas in July CAL is divided up into 4, themed weeks. Each day from Monday through Thursday, a new pattern will be released. On Fridays, both Marie and I will be posting round ups, including other patterns that fit the same theme. Be sure to visit Underground Crafter on Fridays to see Marie’s round ups as well.

At the end of the event, we’ll each post a big round up of all the patterns, and we’ll have a giveaway! (Keep reading to see the fabulous prizes!)

How to Join in

  • The full schedule of all the patterns is further down in this post. As each new pattern comes out, I will update the links. Join in by crocheting one or more of the patterns.
  • Share your progress with the group! We’ll be sharing in both the Scrappy Stitchers Facebook group, and the Underground Crafters Facebook group, as well as in the Underground Crafters group on Ravelry.
