Welcome the Diamond Burst Chevron Afghan Crochet Pattern to our Chevron Collection!I'm sure you could tell by now that I really love afghans. Chevron afghans are all over the place and I know there are TONS of chevron patterns, but most of them are pretty basic patterns. I have pushed my creativity and was determined to be unique in my chevron designs and I think I've done a pretty good job (If I do say so myself). My latest design is no different. It started out as an afghan with arrows working up the peaks of the chevron and then I had an Ah-Ha moment and the Diamond Burst Chevron Afghan was born.
10 days from the beginning foundation to the final 4'x5.5' afghan ready for promotional photos was a fast turn on an afghan for me. I really enjoyed working this design and didn't want to set it down!
CAL TimeI'm so excited that I decided to do a CAL (crochet - a - long) using this pattern. Because it's one of my Chevron Collection patterns, it will be listed for $5.49 at the end of February. To enjoy some time crocheting this with you prior to it's release, Those who become members of my site have access to this pattern for only $3.00 in order to join the CAL. Beginning 2/18, I will start posting 1 row of instructions each day (probably taking Sunday off). I've already posted about how I choose my colors and a tip to figuring out how to stripe patterns easily. I appreciate everyone who has joined already and look forward to seeing your projects as we work this together.
How you can joinA few of you have mentioned that you would like to join but would not be able to until Friday. No worries! You can still join and are welcome to jump in when you can. I will be working on my 2nd one for another week so I can work it the same time as everyone else and I also have other projects that I need to push myself to do.
To join, just visit http://www.craftingfriendsdesigns.com and register or log in. Once you're logged in, you can visit the Members Only page which will give you a few details of the CAL and the listing to purchase. Once this listing is purchased, I will add you to the Blog section where we are holding the CAL. Please feel free to post comments and ask questions where needed. I'm there and happy to help.
This pattern will not be released to the public until after the CAL is complete and will be the regular listing price then. This will run for at least 1 week. Obviously because we will all be making a variety of sizes, we won't all finish at the same time, but I think a week will get us through the majority of what in needed and then you can finish in your own time (no pressure) since it will be a matter of repeats and not new instructions.
If you are unable to join this Crochet a Long, stick around because we will be holding more throughout the year. I offered one last year for my Camo afghan and one a few weeks ago for a new free dress pattern. Some will be free and some will be paid. I like to mix things up a bit :). I will also be offering special discounts to members only (on my site) throughout the year too, so come join the fun!
Thanks again for all your positive comments, support in sharing, liking and commenting on Crafting Friends Designs Facebook posts, Pinning and tweeting. All of this helps so that others who share our same passion for crochet can see what we're up to.
Enjoy your day and I hope to see you on the CAL blog!
