Our 1st Crochet Along of the year!

Updated: Jan 26

We're channeling our inner Sally Skeleton this year with a rag doll design.

Happy New Year ghoul! I hope yours was filled with spooky frights and lots of crochet time. That was absolutely the case for me. Snuggled up in a huge pile of blankets, marshmallow latte in hand and worked my way through some of my unfinished WIPS from the year. And I actually finished quite a few! Surprising even myself with how much I got done.

But now we're officially in 2024 and it's time for you and I to have a crochet along! This is one of my favorites we do through the year because you can really make it your own. That's the whole point of it actually. To carve out some YOU time for 13 nights.

Crochet Along Details

The official start date is Friday, January 19th 2024 and will run until Wednesday, January 31st 2024. You can decide to work it up 1st thing when you wake or maybe you'll want to wait until the evening to go along with the movie list.

Movie Chart

Instead of tracking our mood, this year we're CREATING the mood.

Seaming Together

Fold in half, switch to color B and attach to one corner. Using the zig-zag stitch seam together.

Here's a tutorial of just the stitch if you want a close up.

Adding Stitches

Use color B and a yarn needle to create as many stitches as you'd like to decorate the outside of the snood.

I didn't weave any of the ends in. We're going for a look that screams it's been sewn together over and over. The more distressed the better!


Follow along with a step by step video to create this snood.
