For more information on the this CAL or to purchase your copy of this crochet-a-long, head on over to my Ravelry store.
Feel free to make and sell products using this, but because I put a lot of time and love into this big CAL project, I ask that you give me credit or if it’s online somewhere, you link back to me. If you’re not a part of our CAL Facebook group, come and join us. We have a special Facebook group reserved only for those that are doing the FRIENDS CAL with us (you can find information on how to join that particular group in your purchased pattern).
I can’t wait to see what you do with this! The official hastag for this CAL is:
“Welcome to the real world. It sucks. You’re gonna love it!” –Monica
