If your pre-Xmas FOMO needs putting back in its box, you'll be pleased to hear that these EXTREMELY POPULAR Make-a-long kits are now available as DYED to ORDER, and while we won't be making along with you, plenty of people still are, so make sure you share your progress over on Instagram or Facebook.


*I'll be Dyeing weekly as required, so the turnaround should only be a week, but please bear in mind you will need to be patient while the post wings its way to you as there are still delays in some areas. *


The MAL itself started December 1st, 2020 and with one of these kits you can make your own FABULOUS shawl with this gorgeous icy-blue hand dyed colourway.  The crystal beads (and bead threader) you will need is also included in the kit


I’ve joined forces with the FABULOUSLY talented crochet designer, Heather Gibbs of Kcaco.uk, in a Dyer/Designer MAL collaboration, just in time to celebrate Winter Solstice 2020! ❄️ But, what’s a MAL? Well, we know you’ve heard of CAL or KAL (crochet or knit along respectively!) or even a Mystery knit along (MKAL) ...


... so, a MAL, or Make ALong, is similar to all of these, with only a couple of differences.


❄️ A make-along is the specific released of a pattern, with all of the details required to make the design, along with a specific start date for everyone to begin their project, TOGETHER!


❄️Each kit will include:

* 2x 100g skeins of Corriedale Sock 80/20 yarn, in an exclusive hand-dyed colourway

* Sparkly Preciosa crystal beads to embellish your creation - who doesn’t love a bit of bling?!

* A digital copy of the pattern .. sent directly to your order email address


The original kits also came with a FREE GIFT set of MrsGMakes handmade Stitch Markers. They are available to purchase separately here if you would like to own your own set and missed out on the original kit. (Make sure you sign up to my email list so you don't miss out on future kits and offers!)

Solstice Garden MAL

  • Solstice Garden Crochet Make-Along (MAL) 2020

    We are SUPER excited to tell you more about this secret project I've been working on, with a new friend I made over lockdown, which has resulting in a very fun collaboration and my very first make-along project!

    I've joined forces with Heather from kcaco.uk, who as created a brand new design, working with some of my exclusively-dyed yarn, to create a unique crocheted wrap called Solstice Garden.

    It was a case of crochet designer virtually meeting yarn dyer!

    Back in March, Heather joined one of my Virtual Stitch-n-B*tch sessions and thereafter joined in almost daily chats with a host of other lovely people.

    The more we got to know each other, the more the joke started that we should do a collaboration – which then developed into an actual idea for a make-along (MAL) - with mood boards, and ideas crossing the ether through clandestine zoom calls and plenty of emails and messages.

    We really hope you enjoy the MAL and look forward to crocheting along with you from Dec 1st up until the night of Winter Solstice on December 21st!
