When will the Big Bang Theory CAL start?
Our first chart will be release on Pi Day 3/14
What method are you using?
Due to the number of squares, I will be working mine in mini c2c. But you are welcome and encouraged to use which ever method you like best. Just keep in mind, each method produces a slightly different size so your overall product will vary depending on which you choose.
When will the supply list be available?
My goal is to get a yarn supply list posted no later than one week prior to the start date. I’m aiming for sooner, but while I have a great passion for crocheting/creating – I’m still a mama, a wife, and a daycare provider to seven sweeties all day. I’m a one-gal show and I promise I’ll do the absolute best I can with what I have in front of me.
How many weeks is the Big Bang Theory CAL?
Ten weeks for the main squares and then I’ll release some bonus squares for fun! You can do as many or as few as you wish. While it’s called a CAL, there is no pressure to “keep up”. We all work at our own speed with the time our individual lives allow. The main goal is to have fun!
I’ve never done a C2C before, how can I prepare?
There are SO many amazing tutorials available online.
I started by watching this tutorial by The Crochet Crowd:
Then I read these two blog posts and just practiced with variegated yarn:
Then once I had that down, I tried the heart on this blog as it allowed practice with a color change:
Which bobbin method do you recommend?
Bobbins make or break this whole c2c deal. My yarn getting tangled really stole my joy and I had to experiment to find what worked.
Speaking for me personally, when I did the heart in the AllCraftsChannel blog post above, the dowel method worked wonderfully. If you are not familiar with the dowel method here is an amazing tutorial from 1Dogwolf on how to create one.
Once I tried something with more color changes, the dowel method frustrated me. I wasn’t able to keep things untangled once I turned my work. That was probably due to my own impatience, I’m an instant results kinda gal. 😉
I now use the big clips from the Dollar Store that everyone raves about. They come 6 clips in a pack for $1.
WHILE I am crocheting a row, I have my clips UNHOOKED like below:
I ONLY attach them like in the picture below WHILE I am physically turning the piece for the next row. Then I immediately unclip them untangled and begin working again.
Hopefully that helps! I will update this as more questions arise! I’m looking forward to Pi Day!
Have a blessed day!
