Hope in the Holidays CAL

The Hope in the Holidays CAL 2020 was hosted by Claire @ bearrye.com.

Each day during the month of December 2020, a new 8″ square pattern was released.

But, don’t worry if you missed the CAL!

You can still grab the bundle containing ALL the Blanket Square PDFs, and finish your blanket in your own time 🙂

Yarn for your crochet blanket square

The yarn for this square was generously provided by WeCrochet. All of the squares in the Crochet Along use the same yarn – Mighty Stitch – so your finished blanket will have a lovely, cohesive look and feel once you join all the square together.
