Free Pattern

Wip Wednesday Cal Cardigan – A free crochet along

I have an exciting invitation to extend to you! Every Wednesday for roughly the last 3 years, I’ve done a live video chat over on Facebook at 830pm est. We call it Wip Wednesday Live, and there’s a Facebook group to go along with it where everyone posts their current works in progress. It’s been so exciting to see it grow, and it’s now officially sponsored by my friends at @wecrochetofficial who have been offering a weekly prize of yarn and magazines for the last few months 🀩πŸ₯°. So many prizes, so many winners!


Then, something really crazy happened, and Facebook invited us into their new Stars Program to monetize the lives for the creator, whaaaaat. I’ve been doing these lives for so long, over 150 of them in total and the new invitation to monetize has been such an amazing joy! So now we have MORE prizes, and for the first time, a dedicated free crochet along for the viewers. And it’s all because this awesome community comes together πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°. Join us tonight on the CoCo Crochet Lee Facebook Page at 830pm est to begin this beautiful beginner friendly cardigan pattern! Instructions, tutorials, and community love are all involved, and I’m beyond excited ❀πŸ₯°.

The Yarn

For the Wip Wednesday Cardigan, you can use any yarn in your stash, it’s a great stash-busting pattern! I used 3 colours on my cardigan, and I love the way they turned out! I used WeCrochet Snuggle Puff for mine, each ball is $4.99 and it’s such a great medium weight yarn. It’s soooo soft!! You can find it here >> Take me to Snuggle Puff

The WeCrochet Website describes Snuggle Puff:

Snuggle up with downy drifts of cotton! Snuggle Puff is a heavy worsted or Aran weight cotton yarn made possible by new innovations in yarn construction, allowing fiber from our favorite plant to be blown into a nylon mesh. Without the rigid structure of spinning and plying, the resulting yarn is amazingly lightweight and lofty, keeping more of Pima Cotton’s superlative drape and huggable softness than traditional yarn construction. With the added benefit of natural machine washable convenience, Snuggle Puff is perfect for wool-free accessories and more for babies, children, anyone with extra sensitive skin, and cotton fans of all kinds.”.
