Now that all the parts of the Advent CAL have been published (and photos of completed projects have started to pop up on Ravelry) I can share details of the next CAL.

The time between Christmas and New Year gives many people the opportunity to take holidays and have an extended break (up to 10 days this year) and others have no choice by having enforced holidays as businesses close for the season.  As a result many people have more leisure time than usual – so I think this is a good time to do a quick CAL, something that takes a little time each day and brightens up the winter days (which are rather grey in the UK right now!).    That means a Christmas Mandala CAL!

I have designed a colourful mandala which I will release in 4 parts, one each day from 27th to 30th December.  The mandala has 15 rounds and each day between 3 and 5 rounds of the pattern will be released.

If you want to join in you can find the pattern here.  It’s just the introduction part for now, but it does include the materials required and the stitches used.   And there is a discussion group on Ravelry here.    And if you buy the pattern before midnight (GMT) on 26th December, you can get 50% discount by using the coupon code XMAS

Ok – this doesn’t give much of a clue, but it shows how colourful it is!

Happy crocheting xxx
