2021 Craft-A-Longs

Participate in one or all of the 2021 ESK craft-a-longs to actually use all that gorgeous hand-dyed yarn, boost your Yarnathon yardage, and even give your team a little boost while you're at it!

2021's Booster Club offers four quarterly KALs this year, each with a specific theme that should give you a wide variety of options to suit your crafting plans.

Mosaic KAL Socks KAL Designer Spotlight KAL Chunky Lace KAL

You can see details for each craft-a-long by clicking on the event above or below - please review the specific rules for each CAL before casting on:
Q1 - Mosaic Knit & Crochet - Complete a project that uses this special mosaic colorwork technique in the ESK yarn of your choice.
Q2 - Fingering Weight Socks - Complete a pair of fingering weight socks.
Q3 - Designer Spotlight - Complete a project using designs from our two featured designers, Laura Chau or Toni Lipsey.
Q4 - Chunky Lace - Complete a lace project that uses aran, chunky, or bulky weight yarn.

How it Works

Each craft-a-long officially begins on the first of the quarter it belongs to. Pick your yarn, maybe even get ambitious and do a swatch (while earning your Swatchbuckler badge!), and cast-on with your fellow ESKers in the Ravelry thread. When your project is done, head to your Progress Dashboard to submit your project and get your yardage and stars. Our goal is to have as many of you as possible finish your projects within the timeframe of the craft-a-long (truly crafting "along"), but we'll accept submissions for all 2021 craft-a-longs all the way up through December 25th to allow maximum participation.

Prizes: All 2021 CALs have six size options to allow everyone to play. You'll earn more yardage and stars the larger your project is. You can combine as many projects as you'd like - just wait to submit until all your projects for the CAL are done.

Requirements for ALL craft-a-longs:

  • All yarn should come from Eat.Sleep.Knit except for minor embellishments
  • All projects should start on or after the start date for the craft-a-long and be completed and submitted by December 25th, 2021
  • All projects should use the patterns or themes specified by the individual craft-a-long requirements
  • All projects completed within the craft-a-long calendar timeframe will be eligible for the Ravelry prize drawings for that craft-a-long.
