Welcome to the Cosmic Cal

On this page you will find all the information you need to start and follow along with the Cosmic Cal.

Designed by me, Helen Shrimpton, and sponsored by Stylecraft Yarns.

The introduction post (published 2nd March 2018) will give you all the details, how you can get involved, where to buy your yarn packs, or how much yarn you will need, the finished sizes of the blankets, where you will be able to get help, and a list of the languages the cal will be available in.

Though the official crochet a long has now finished you can still join in with many others who are making their Cosmic blankets either on the Official Stylecraft Cosmic cal group or Helen’s Hookaholics on Facebook.

You will find each part of the cal below, with links to the pattern (on the stylecraft website) and also the video tutorials.
