2021 Charity Cozy Fall Makealong!
I'm so excited to be participating in the Charity Cozy Fall Makealong! So what is it, you may ask? It's a makealong with over 30 participating designers that includes one square per day in both knit and crochet over the course of the weekdays of October (20 squares total for each craft). The squares will be free for the designer's featured day on their blog and we are encouraging makers to donated the finished blanket to charity.
So, what's the charity? If you choose to purchase the bundle pdf with all the squares, half of the proceeds will go the nonprofit organization CURE childhood cancer. As a cancer survivor myself, this project really hit home for me and I had to participate!
Each bundle includes 20 exclusive fall-inspired knit or crochet square patterns by your favorite indie designers. Each square is designed for 8" size (many include adjustment info) in worsted weight yarn so you can use up your stash and make the cozies fall blanket.
The bundles are only available for the duration of the event, which runs October 4th - 29th.
To get right to the free squares, simply scroll all the way down this post to get to the links.
All the squares patterns will stay available on the designer’s blogs, but sometimes it’s
just easier to have a printable PDF library to refer to:
If you prefer to work from a printed pattern you can take notes on
To keep and organize for future reference
In case the designers decide to take down their website for some reason (no plans for that here but you never know!)
If you don’t want to wait for all squares to be published!
You can grab the Cozy Fall Knit Blanket Squares Bundle here for knit or here for crochet. The bundle is only available for the duration of the event - ends October 29th!
