    1. You don't have to buy a yarn kit, but I know that some of the suppliers are offering special discounts so you might want to check them out. Feel free to use the yarn of your choice, including your stash. :)

    1. Hi Stephanie, Sorry for the confusion. This blog post contains the same info as the pdf. The pattern will be on my blog for free, and also as Ravelry downloads for a small fee. If you’d like a free pdf version, you can sign up for the Cascade Yarns newsletter.

  4. If I buy the pattern as Ravelry download, do I get the weekly updates for free or does every update cost a small fee?

  5. Hello -
    This is my first time doing a CAL, how or where do I get the yarn kit?

    1. Look in this post for links to all the shops that are selling kits. You can most likely order online. If no kits are available, you can substitute any worsted weight yarn you like instead.

  6. Hi Melinda. What does the abbreviation fpdc mean please?

    1. FPDC is a front post double crochet stitch. All of the stitch definitions should be listed on page 2 of each pattern pdf, as well as in my blog posts. If you're having trouble, take a look at the video. Tania does a great job demonstrating how it's all done. :)
