Spring Shawl KAL (1).png

Popcorn at the Movies CAL Part 2



The first part was super simple, unless it was your first time working with a magic circle which could have been an issue for some. This time around were going to focus on creating the 3 dimensional film strips. You'll get to play with working around the post, both front and back versions. There are detailed tutorials for these techniques including video tutorials in my blog How to Crochet Around the Post.


There is a paid version of the pattern, as a complete printer friendly PDF which is available to buy, a week after the first part is released, 29th March, from the shop if you just can't wait for the release schedule of the KAL.


All the info about yarns and notions are over at the main post here.


The pattern is available in both UK and US terms and this time around there is a video tutorial for making a magic circle. Note that the abbreviations list is for the entire shawl, not each individual part ;)

Sharing is Caring

Sharing is caring in everything that we do in our world of yarn. The more you share this event (and others) online, the more people visit the site and you help support me. That is how designers get noticed and it helps to grow reputation for the blogs you enjoy.


I've created some images if you want to use them, all 4 shown below, to share info about the CAL with others. Instagram, facebook and stories sized graphics are ready for you to use.


As we all work through the Popcorn at the Movies CAL I ask that you use our hashtag to share and make a great gallery of what you are working on.
