Introducing Cosmic cal
Introducing Cosmic Cal 2018
Below you will find all the information you need to plan for this year’s CAL.
As many of you, that know my designs, will know, I love the idea of thousands of people, from all over the world, and many diverse ways of living, connecting through a common love of a hook and some yarn.
The concept of the Cosmic cal is connection, and expansion. Whether you see the universe and stars, or the web of life within this design, this is your journey and I hope it is one of love and gratitude.
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…”
– Hermes Trisma“
“Cosmic consciousness, a consciousness of the life and order of the universe which is possessed by few men at present.
It is a further stage of human evolution which will be reached by all humanity in the future.”
The idea started from some of the spiritual work I have done with Archangel Metatron, and what is known as Metatron’s cube, this is part of sacred geometry, and is often used in meditation and connection to higher levels of consciousness.
Metatron’s cube also incorporates all possible shapes and is linked to “the flower of life”, which is a continual connection and growth symbol.
There is lots of information out there on the internet, should you wish to learn more about this.
♥ This Crochet A-Long is sponsored by Stylecraft yarns.
I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Stylecraft yarns for this CAL.

♥ Using your own colour choices
The yarn packs will give you an idea of how much yarn you will need, depending on the type and weight of yarn, and the number of colours you choose to use.
You will notice that the different types of Double knit yarn require different amounts, but as a guide go with the total amounts for the packs and this will give you plenty of yarn:
♥ When can I buy my yarn?
All yarn packs will be available from 12th March through participating online stores.
Here are some of the online stockists:
Woolwarehouse UK and International
Deramores UK and International
Hooked on Wool UK

I look forward, to you all joining us on this wonderful crochet a-long journey.
