What is WIP Wednesday Live?

WIP Wednesday Live is a weekly live chat that takes place on the CoCo Crochet Lee Facebook Page! We have been doing this weekly live chat for a few years now. WIP Wednesday took a hiatus while host, Lee Sartori of CoCo Crochet Lee, took a break to move with her family across Canada this year from Ontario to Nova Scotia.

Every Wednesday evening, crochet and knitting friends gather up their current WIP (work in progress), a drink, some snacks, and anything cozy that they need, and we all chat! There are unboxings, new patterns, exciting news, and just general yarny-fun. We have a lot of laughs!! You’ll also get to know the regular friends that join in the live conversations each week!

How to Join the Live

WIP Wednesday Live starts at 8 pm Atlantic Standard Time on Wednesdays on the CoCo Crochet Lee Facebook Page. In order to join in the conversation, all you have to do is load up the Facebook page and wait for the live to pop up on the feed. Once you see the post, you can click it to join in the live!

You can participate in the live by using the comments bar. Say hi, tell us all what you are working on for the week, and share in the conversation in real time!

You can also send Facebook Stars during the live video to help extend the live chats by 1/2 hour! For every 5000 Stars sent during the Live, the video will extend by 1/2 hour. Sending stars is optional and appreciated! Stars help the creator with funds for pattern design, prizes, and more! Sending Stars helps to make our Wip Wednesday lives fun and exciting each and every week!

Although photos of your crochet can’t be shared in the comments during the live video, you can join our Facebook Group to share photos and updates of your crochet along with everyone else! The CoCo Crochet Lee Community Group is open to joining so that you can see what everyone is up to. You’ll also get lots of great updates about WIP Wednesday Live, and everything going on for CoCo Crochet Lee.

The Stitch Pattern for the Londonberry Poncho can be found inside the amazing book titled ‘Mosaic Crochet Workshop’ by Esme Crick, Red Sparrow Crochet! This book taught me how to mosaic crochet, and I was so excited to use one of the stitch patterns in this book for my poncho with permission from Esme Crick, the author.

Choose your yarn and match your gauge! Upload a project photo of your gauge swatch to Ravelry for a chance to win an amazing prize from Furls Crochet before next Wednesday! 

Gauge Swatch:

Row 1: Ch 15, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn — 14 sc.

Rows 2-18: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn — 14 sc.

Fasten off. Using a tape measure, measure your swatch. The swatch should match 4″ x 4″ square. Because this poncho isn’t close fitting, if you are near 4″ squared, that would be fine as well!

Happy Crocheting! See you for part two!
