Five years after the success of the Nostalgia in 2018, we have come up with a new Nostalgia to celebrate its 5th anniversary.
This Nostalgia 2.0 2023 Crochet ALong has also become a fun and varied pattern, with a nostalgic touch!
For those who haven’t crocheted the Nostalgia 1, the name Nostalgia was coined because we went back to how crocheting (for us) once started. For who doesn’t know them, those old books with crochet patterns that our mothers, aunts and grandmothers had. With these patterns, many homes have been “decorated” with tablecloths, curtains and bedspreads, crocheted with the still popular Durable cotton in white or ecru.
Today these books are again very popular, and it has become an art to get hold of those old books. Two new books have since been released in collaboration with Durable with some of these nostalgic patterns, but in a more modern jacket. We have also been able to make 2 bedspreads for Durable in the same style and the well-known curtain has been redeveloped so that many can crochet the curtain again.
Building on this, we have crocheted another afghan for 2023 in which we go back to the old filet crochet patterns and the time-honored Durable cotton.
So we are going to crochet a afghan in the filet crochet technique, which often consists of open and closed squares, which together form a pattern.
We would like you to read this PDF-file with great attention. It could clarify a lot and could answer the questions you may have about the Nostalgia Crochet ALong beforehand.
How does it work?
The Nostalgia 2.0 2023 Crochet ALong contains 24 parts. Every week, on Friday 8.30 AM, we will publish a new part of the pattern.
At the end of the line, which may take a while because we’re make a large afghan, you’ll end up with a beautiful afghan, with a link to the past.
The project starts on 6 January 2023.
