Gingerbread House CAL 2022

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Christmas Blanket CAL! You made it amazing!

Options, options, options...that's the name of the game. Think of it in terms of decorating the walls of your actual gingerbread house. Do you like it with more or less frosting? Do you like lots of colorful candies or just a little? You can decorate your blanket any way you like. This will be a great time to play with color. 

There are more than 10 different stitch patterns in these blankets, with only four of them foundational. The rest of the stitch patterns are where you get to play. 
All of the pattern downloads will be available in both US and UK terminology.

The full pattern is now available for download: Etsy, Ravelry, and my Website.

Frosting Theme

Candy Theme

Beach Theme

Silver and Red Theme

So, why is this CAL different from any other CAL? Because it's more than just making a blanket together- it's a two-month Christmas party! If you join the Bizzy Crochet CAL Group on FB you will be a part of an International community that loves Christmas. 

But, it's more than just that. This year I will be featuring a guest designer every week of the CAL. Not only will you get to meet a fantastic designer who might be new to you, but everyone that signs up for the CAL will be blessed with a free pattern from each designer! The guest designer list is one you don't want to miss!!

That alone should be enough to get you excited, but there's more! 
We will be kicking off the CAL with a week-long Pre-CAL Party Sept 25-29. 
Every Saturday throughout the CAL we will have LIVE Coffee Chats. 
Every week we will have new games like Bingo and Treasure Hunts with prizes. 
Of course, if you have already been in a Bizzy CAL you know that it's as much about the community as it is about the pattern. I hope you join us in the fun!!

For your viewing pleasure...the Bizzy Testers:

Alisha used a short repeat gradient for her candy colors which helped her achieve her different colored bobbles.

Debbi kept her colors minimal and simple, choosing only a burgundy red for the center and all white for the rest of her blanket. 

Mik chose waves of green and red that created a fun contrast to the rest of her white frosting sections. 

Niamh made her sample out of crochet thread so she could use it as a table decoration for the holidays. She said it finished up at about 25" x 25".

Tiffiny went with a yummy dark chocolate cookie for her gingerbread house and changed up some of her frosting work to resemble peppermints. 

Vannessa chose a vibrant variegated yarn to achieve a colorful candy look in her blanket.

Wini chose a completely unique color palette that makes you think of pink frosted chocolate cookies with mint chips.  Yum! 

 Thank you to my amazing testers! 
Hopefully, you have found something to inspire you!
