Spring Crochet-a-Long

Today is the first day of Spring, and what a great day to begin a CAL!!!

Here's our schedule:

CAL officially begins today - March 20, 2018.
CAL officially ends on April 30, 2018.

However, you can take as long as you need to complete the project. We just need an official end date so we have room to slip in more projects. Yes - I try to keep 'em coming!

If you haven't gotten all your supplies together yet, then here is what you will need.

Remember - you can use any yarn that tickles your fancy, with the appropriate size hook. I absolutely love the Cascade Pinwheel in Spring Bouquet. And the colors are so gorgeous - just a sweet breath of Spring! It is 100% acrylic, but really does block nicely. I normally like to use natural fibers when blocking is required, but I am really delighted with how this yarn keeps its shape.

So....without further ado, I present to you my first in a series of four seasonal shawls.
This one is inspired by a poem about Spring. 


The pattern is offered for FREE through end of day on March 31 CST. In the spirit of goodwill, please DO NOT SHARE the coupon code fancyfree anywhere online, or by word of mouth. Anyone who wants to join the CAL for free will need to visit this website. Feel free to share this post and direct your friends here. If my request is not honored, then I will have to rescind the free offer - and I really don't want to do that. I love for everyone to CAL with me and free is the best way!

Did you miss the free offer? No need to fret. I'm offering a sliding scale of discounts for the duration of the CAL. Not quite free - but still a great deal for a fun CAL.

Remember - don't share ANY coupon codes, just share this post.
April 01 - 14, 2018: 70% off with code fancy70
April 15 - 21, 2018: 60% off with code fancy60.
April 22 - 30, 2018: 50% off with code fancy50. 
Thereafter is full price of $4.98.
