It's time to crochet a new mystery amigurumi together! In December I'm hosting my 12th mystery amigurumi crochet along (aka CAL)! 

Do you like surprises, amigurumi, and connecting with like-minded people? Then you'll love this event! My crochet alongs are fun digital events where you get to discover a brand new amigurumi, part by part, together with other amigurumi crazy people during a certain period of time.

Down below you'll find abbreviations, color keys, and other things that are good to know before the crochet along starts 1st of December. Welcome to the party!

amigurumi crochet along christmas december


4 years ago I hosted my first CAL for a small crowd of amigurumi enthusiasts. Ralf the moose was the first amigurumi we crocheted together and he stole many hearts that December. Everything started from a love for amigurumi and counting down to Christmas. Since then my annual crochet alongs have grown rapidly and over 5000 people have participated so far.

The December CAL 2022 is mainly hosted in the Facebook group Crochet with Garnknuten and in your email inbox. The secret PDF pattern is divided into 12 pieces + assembling instructions. The parts will be sent to your inbox every other day and we'll wrap up the crochet along with a live assembling party. There will also be a giveaway that you automatically attend when you publish a picture of your finished amigurumi in the Facebook group or on Instagram #garnknutencalparty.

MC - magic circle
r - row
st - stitch
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
dcg - double crochet group
inc - increase
dec - decrease
BLO - crochet in back loops only
FLO - crochet in front loops only
cc - color change

[…]x… - repeat the instructions in the brackets x-times
(…) - the number of stitches at the end of the round.



- Make sure you crochet pretty tight all the way, so you don’t get large holes between the stitches. If you crochet loosely, I suggest you should test a smaller hook size (ex. 3.00 mm) so that the stuffing doesn‘t show once you‘ve filled the toy.
- All parts will be worked in spirals (if the pattern doesn’t say otherwise) - so you don‘t have to think about closing the rounds.

- A stitch marker can help you keep track of the beginning of your rows.

What is the weight of the Karma yarn? I do not have access to it and want to buy something that would be close to the same. Is it a #3, #4, etc??
