Crochet-alongs are so much fun and they are even more fun when you do it with your friends. When you join a CAL or KAL you get to work on the same project with everyone that is joining. For this special crochet-along I will be working with my designer friends to create a beautiful finished project.

The Wedding Blanket Crochet-along:
On the Red Heart team we have a wonderful leader of the Joy Creators, named Ally. Ally got married in May and we wanted to do something very special for her. I got the Joy Creators together and we each made a square to put together to make a wedding blanket for Ally and her husband.
Now that we have all of these squares we wanted to share them with all of you and put together this community crochet-along. You will need to check the blog posts of the individual designers to know what your material requirements are. Through the project we all used Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™ to create and heirloom project for Ally.
What you need to know:
Each week on Monday and Friday there will be a new square released. Head to this blog post each week to get the new pattern.
Since each designer crochets with a different tension it will be very important to check the size of your squares as you go. They are all designed to be 12″ by 12″. Using this size square will give you a 5′ by 5′ blanket when finished. Keep checking that your squares are close to the right size to all of the others to make it easier to seam in the end.
At the end we will share the border pattern that we used. Feel free to use all of the squares or just the ones that you love and make multiple of them.
