Crochet – A – Long to The Garden State Afghan

Our next CAl (Crochet-A-Long) will be The Garden State Afghan, and we will be starting April 1, 2016.  The pattern will be free and released over a period of about eight weeks here on the blog and also on Ravelry.  Yarn packs in the delicious Scheepjes Stone Washed XL are available on the Deramores site and will include 35 skeins of Stone Washed XL in a pretty pastel colorway designed to bring on the Springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere.   If you purchase through any of my links to Deramores, I will receive a commission, and I thank you!   For US buyers, here’s the link:  For UK buyers, here’s the link: .  For other countries, use any of my links and choose your country from the pull-down menu. The pattern will be free with code on Ravelry throughout the CAL only, but will remain free on my blog thereafter.  If you’d like to chat about the pattern, please join my Facebook group called “Crochet-A-Long with JulieAnny” or chime in on my Ravelry board, Julie Yeager Designs.

  1. I really like your designs but have trouble getting them. I can’t copy them off my phone to have them on paper. I have to write them by hand. Then I don’t have a picture. I love your new one coming up. The stained glass window. Not sure how yo do your cal though. Help.

  2. It is beautiful! I will try to join! I hope the English language will not be a problem. Will there also be YouTube video’s?

  3. Love this! I am a knitter but was wondering if this would be difficult for a beginner? Thought I might learn.

    1. There are a few tricky stitches but I think the directions are clear and help is always available at my Ravelry board, our Facebook group, or message me here. Give it a try!

  4. I am in Australia and asked Deramores if I could buy the pattern only. They referred me to you.
    I am happy to buy the pattern. Can I do that from somewhere? thanks.

    1. Hi Michele, The pattern is currently for sale but I am making some minor updates and will be releasing it free on the blog starting April 1. If you don’t want to wait it is for sale on Ravelry and Etsy and it’s called The Garden State Afghan. Thanks! Julie

  5. Good morning, I live in USA , and I would like to do the Garden State Afghan, tell me how or were I can buy the yarn for the project?

    1. Hi, If you would like to buy the specified yarn there are yarn packs available at It is in the UK but ships internationally; I have purchased from them many times with no problem (I’m in New York.) I get a commission when you buy from them through my link. Scheepjes yarn is available in the US from Paradise Fibers. For the afghan as pictured you need Scheepjes Stone Washed XL, 20 skeins Amazonite, 4 skeins Carnelian, 3 skeins Rose Quartz, 3 skeins Pink Quartzite, 3 skeins Canada Jade, and 2 skeins New Jade. If you want to use a different yarn, choose about 1600 yards of Main Color and 250 yards each of 5 other colors.

  6. Hi,
    I keep seeing the pattern on Ravelry is free with a code, but I can’t seem to find it. Has it been removed, or am I just not looking in the right spot?

    Thanks in advance!

  7. Julie, I got your post about this pattern being free on Ravelry with the code , but the code won’t work. Can you help?
    Thanks so much.
