2022 Spring Sparkle CAL-KAL Details


Let’s leave dull, dark winter behind and move toward the bright, light, new beginnings of spring. Join us anytime between now and the end of summer for our Spring Sparkle crochet-along (CAL) and knit-along (KAL) as we work on some gorgeous shawls full of the sparkly goodness of glass beads.

Whether you are a crocheter or knitter, an advanced beginner or experienced stitcher, you will have a wonderful time making one of our shawl selections. You’ll be able to join us in person in our studio or online in our Facebook group. We will be working on the shawls right alongside you and will be available to provide help and assistance as you work on your own shawl.

Yarn Choices to Make

We will be using incredible yarn from Holly Dyeworks for our shawls. No matter which shawl you’ll be making, your kit will contain one skein of plain yarn and one skein of sparkly yarn. All stitchers will be able to choose a regular or high twist yarn for the plain yarn, a low or high sparkle yarn for the sparkly yarn, and the color palette you want to use.

PLAIN YARN CHOICE: We will be using one skein of plain fingering weight yarn in this project. This yarn will be used at the top of the shawl. You may choose a yarn with a normal twist level or a high twist level. Both yarns work equally well for this shawl. Simply select the look you prefer.

Top yarn: regular smooth; bottom yarn: high twist

SPARKLY YARN CHOICE: We will be using one skein of sparkly yarn in this project. You can choose from a low sparkle level (contains 5% stellina) or a high sparkle level (contains 20% stellina). Neither option is particularly scratchy, but we will be using this yarn on the bottom part of the shawl so there will not be any potential scratchiness around the neck.
