Octagonical Sneaky Peek

(7 customer reviews)

A sneaky peek at the beautiful new Crochet A Long for 2020.

♥ More information coming soon ♥ 

 In this sneaky peek post you will see some gorgeous photos of some of the stitches we will be using, there are some simple ones, some special ones, and some tricky ones, but they are all do-able even for beginners.

 The design is called Octagonical.

 We will be making an octagonal blanket.



 The introducing Octagonical post will be published Thursday 27th August, which will include all the details for yarn packs and yarn requirements, and you will be able to see lots of gorgeous photos of the finished blanket.

 As you can see in the photo there is more than enough yarn in each of the packs.

 To learn about tension and gauge please see my tutorial HERE.


 The design starts with a mandala.

 There will be full video tutorials in US terms.

 The pattern will be available in US terms and UK terms, and also in Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Urdu.


 There will be lots of texture throughout the design.

 For those of you who have made my designs before some stitches will be old friends…. or not!

 There are some new stitches for you to learn.

 I feel so blessed by all of you that make my designs and share your photos and frustrations in my Facebook group. It gives me such joy to see the pleasure you feel when you complete one of my designs. I love the way everyone is willing to help each other and the generally supportive vibe in the group.
