2023 crochet blanket cal roundup

CAL stands for Crochet Along – when a group of people get together to crochet the same project. It’s all the fun of crochet but with a group. You make new friends, and get inspired seeing everyone else’s progress. Blanket CALs are great if you’ve never completed a blanket before too – doing it as a group will help you stay motivated. Every year there are many different blogs that offer crochet blanket cals. If you’re looking for some crochet fun for 2023, check these out:
