I was scrolling through Facebook on New Year’s Eve and came across a post about how New Year’s Resolutions don’t have to be diet and exercise routines or other hard to stick to resolutions! They can be FUN!

This post gave examples of eating new pastas or fruits and I thought “Well, what fun crochet resolutions can we make?”

At first I thought “try new yarns”, but then I realized that there are a lot of stitches that I have never used before. I mostly design using single crochets these days for my projects, like the bowl cozies and pot holders, so I really need to spread my wings!

So, a new crochet stitches it is! And hey, we can still try new yarns too! I’m sure there are some worsted weight yarns I’ve never tried somewhere out there. LOL!

This free 2024 crochet along event runs from January – December, 2024! Each month will feature a new stitch for us to learn together!

NOTE: Since this was planned on a whim, the January square won’t be available until January 8th at the latest (I’m shooting for January 5th), but all other squares will be available on the first of the month.

I will be using worsted weight yarn and an H/8/5.00mm crochet hook, since they are the most accessible materials!

The new stitches will be presented as a 15″ afghan square, so we can have a New Year’s Resolution blanket at the end of the year!

But that’s not all: I will also use the stitch for a brand new pattern, so we get extra practice with it!

This crochet along will take place in the Blackstone Designs Crochet Community group on Facebook.

By hosting it in the Blackstone Designs Crochet Community for this event, we have a place to share our squares with each other and work through any issues we’re facing with each stitch pattern.

But no worries if you’re not on Facebook or it’s not your thing, because each crochet stitch pattern will be listed on this website for free! Come back to this post each month for the directory of patterns!

Plus, I will share my makes on Instagram! Tag me ( @blackstone_designs) or use #NYResCAL to share your finished squares!

  1. I participate in a number of CALs via Ravelry, but doesn’t appear that she has a forum set up on Ravelry… Maybe she’ll take it as a suggestion (pretty please!)…

    It actually works well, because I have not seen any sort of trolling or scamming on Ravelry, plus it’s free to join, and all the ads are fiber-related! Plus, I’ve made some really great virtual friends who are like-minded and knowledgeable, and always ready to offer suggestions, guidance, and encouragement!

  2. Great! This is right up my alley! I see the pattern will only be available during the specified month. Will the instructional video be available beyond the first month?

  3. Hi. I’ve been checking here and at Ravelry, but can’t seem to find this month’s CAL entry. Is the link not working or not available yet?

  4. Hi,

    Having a tricky time finding May’s stitch for the 2024 New year’s resolution CAL….
    May is highlighted but when I go on the link it says nothing is there…. I’m just hoping it’s my tech gremlins acting up or you’re still in the process of uploading

    Thank you for all you do btw…. I’m really loving all the new stitches
