The DGY 2019 Knitting and Crochet Challenge

 

If you've been thinking about learning to knit or crochet - or you want to brush up on your crafting repertoire - there's no time like the present. 

We've designed a fun challenge that teaches you each craft in order of skill-level, starting with the very basics. (Including how to cast on!)

We challenge you to knit or crochet a 6"x 6" fabric square using only the designated stitch of that month.

(EX: In Jan, you would either knit stitch and/or single crochet.)

If you follow the suggested schedule, by December you will have 12 knitted or crocheted squares that you can piece together to make a 1.5 ft x 2 ft lap blanket. 

Choose to either knit or crochet, or try both! Whatever you decide - make it yours.

Here are the knitting stitches for 2019:
