The Granny Squares Halloween CAL

Update
This CAL is now closed. Subscribe to my e-mail list to be notified of future CAL’s, free patterns, and crochet events!

You can purchase the bundle with all 20 Halloween Granny Squares in my LoveCrafts and Etsy stores!

Here are all the squares included in the bundle with the links to the individual listing on LoveCrafts or Ravelry.

Do you want to join a fun Halloween CAL that is totally free and is going to deliver you two Halloween Granny Square patterns each week directly in your e-mail inbox?

Then, read on!

In the past couple of weeks, I have been designing looots of granny squaresFlowers, ladybugs, bees, butterflies, bears, you name it…

And…. Halloween granny squares!

Halloween Granny Squares
These are some of the Halloween squares that I’ve been making.

What do you think of a Mini Halloween CAL?

I thought that instead of posting these squares one at the time on the blog, we could crochet them together in a mini E-mail CAL.

If you have never heard of the word CAL, it stands for Crochet ALong.

All you need to do is to sign up for the CAL in the form below and I will e-mail you the patterns directly to you!

How Does The CAL Work?

Starting from September 8th until October 20th, 2020, I will e-mail you twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday, sending you the pattern of 1 or 2 squares.

I will not share these patterns for free on the blog but I’ll probably bundle them up after the CAL and sell them as a paid pattern only.

So, this CAL is the only way to access these patterns for free!

Eye and Spiderweb Halloween Granny Squares

Not Only Squares…

Towards the end of the CAL, I will also share some ideas on how to join the squares, how to assemble an easy candy bag, and some border ideas in case you’re going to make a blanket.

Which leads me to another question!

Spider Granny Squares

What Can You Make with These Squares?

I am going to make a pillowcase with 9 squares on each side.
The final size of the pillow will be 45 cm (17 inches) – DK yarn and a 4-mm hook – For the pillow, I simply bought a cheap one at a local store and I am going to use the stuffing of that pillow.

But you do not necessarily need to crochet a pillow. You can also make:

  • blanket,
  • join a few to make a fun candy bag,
  • garland,
  • potholders (if you’re using cotton yarn),
  • or really anything you can think of!

Questions?

If you have any doubts about this CAL, don’t hesitate to contact me via e-mail or leave a comment below!

I hope to see for some fun Halloween Granny Squares!

    • Hi Amanda,
      There is really no problem if you do not have the time to make all the squares when I send them to you. They are going to be quite a few squares in a relatively short time, so it is perfectly normal.
      But you can collect the patterns during the CAL, start, and then crochet them at your own pace!

    • Hi Michele,
      Welcome to the CAL! Of course you can get the patterns of the first week. There are three of them.
      Would you, please, send me an e-mail at raffaella(at)raffamusadesigns(dot)com? I will then send you all the info to get the first patterns 🙂

  4. Hello, I have joined the cal for the Halloween granny square and I need the set up to know because I never got them. So is there any way I can get them?

    • Hi Jerrie, Could you please send me an e-mail so that I can check what is going on? I have been having trouble with e-mail deliverability but I tried to fix the problem over the weekend. Did you get any e-mails yesterday by any chance?

  5. Raffaella,
    Somewhere along the line I seem to have been dropped out of the Halloween CAL, and have only received the Spider, the Spider Web and the Eyeball.
    Please help.
    Thanks,
    Judy F.

    • Hi Judith,
      Sorry for that. You were not dropped out of the CAL, it is just that I’ve been having problems with e-mail deliverability and had to set up a new e-mail account last weekend.
      Anyway, today, I’ll send the fourth part of the CAL and there will be all the links for the third file as well. If you don’t get that one either, please, let me know.
      In the meantime, I’ll try to contact you directly via e-mail so that you can add my new e-mail address to your contacts (I think that helps with deliverability of e-mails…)
      Stay in touch,
      Raffaella

  6. HI there! Loving this CAL although I’m a bit late getting started! Anyway, would you mind emailing to me the latest two squares (witch and crystal ball?) since I haven’t received them in my email.

    Thanks so much!!

  7. Hi raffaella I have just joined and I must say this is an awesome idea I am currently making a Halloween blanket for my daughter and these should be a great addition to it 😊

  8. This is the first posting I have seen about this cal . Can I still get the squares and be included? I have subscribed. Thanks

    • Hi Angela, sure, you’ll get all the patterns. Some are already in the welcome e-mail and the rest will be linked in the first regular CAL e-mail that I’ll send after you subscribe

  9. Thank you very much for the add at this very late stage 🙂
    I’m hoping to add your designs to a long duster-style cardigan I am making other autumnal granny squares for.
    Fingers crossed!

  10. Hello…i signed up last week and received only one email so far. Should I have received more than that? I guess I just want to make sure I have been added to your list to receive all the Halloween square patterns. Thank you!
