It’s time for another crochet-along with Marly! Together we’ll be making this pretty poncho in Red Heart Unforgettable yarn. Each Tuesday starting September 20 you’ll get a written pattern and video tutorial so you can make your own poncho. Below is the list of supplies, schedule, community, and information about the giveaway. Use the hashtag #MarlyBirdCAL to share your projects and follow along!
A crochet-along (or knit-along) is when a group of people work together on the same pattern. Share ideas and get help and inspiration with the group!
