Very excited! We've teamed up with McAree favourite Carol Meldrum to bring you our very first McAree Crochet Along! Each week we will be releasing a new pattern for a crochet block inspired by patterns and shapes found in traditional Scandanavian textiles. The designs are a mystery and can be worked in any combination of colours to give them your own individual touch. At the end of the Crochet Along, we will show you how the blocks can sewn together to create a Nordic inspired bag, or you can use them to create your own project; cushion cover, table runner, bed throw - the possibilities are endless!
There are 8 patterns altogether ranging from easy to more advanced. Photo instructions are given for the more complicated stitches. The squares can be worked in any colour combinations, but we would recommend starting with the colours as given for your first square.
We have put together yarn packs, available through our website, for the Crochet Along in the palettes listed below (each comes with a free KnitPro crochet hook), or you can purchase the individual balls in colours of your choosing. The patterns will be released every Monday starting on 28th September 2015.

1 x 4mm crochet hook (yarn packs include a free hook)
1 x scissors
