Christmas CAL Changeable Wreath

It still seems far away, but before you know it, cozy Christmas will be back on your doorstep. With the cooler weather approaching, we are going to crochet a wreath together that you can transform into both Christmas and winter atmosphere. The lighting around the wreath completes the coziness! You can participate with your own yarn or buy the ready-made yarn package, which includes wreath and lights!

The CAL lasts for 5 weeks and starts on Friday, November 3. Below you will find the most frequently asked questions, such as supplies, how a CAL from YarnZoo works and how to show the end result! I will keep you updated through the mail and my Facebook group.

But it all starts with a registration using the form below, leave your name and email address and crochet along!
