Just News: The Crazy Coat

Back in 2013, I saw this photo on Pinterest.

I loved it, and I had to have it. I searched everywhere and could not find the pattern. So I made my own. Unfortunately, I ‘grew’ a bit and the coat no longer fits. So my daughter is wearing it now.

Since then, many have asked for a pattern. I couldn’t write a pattern for it, as it was someone else’s concept. The requests kept on coming. So I finally decided to do something about it.

The Crazy Coat Workshop Series / CAL is a CAL with a twist. A huge twist. Each person will design her own, unique, crazy coat, and make it, using her favourite size crochet hook, and yarn she prefers. I am not being prescriptive about it at all! So how are we going to do it?

The cost to join the CAL is R500. That would amount to about $38, depending on the exchange rate. This is simply to pay for my time; I am going to spend a lot of time coaching people through this journey. This is not for those who just want a free CAL to make a coat the same as thousands of others. It is for those that wish to progress to a higher level in crochet, and need a bit of guidance to get there.

Each week, I will release a document with information and work for that week. I will take you through the entire process of planning, designing and creating. All of it. After this, you will be able to make any garment you can think of, with the techniques I am going to teach you. It is a chance to learn how to find and express, your unique creativity and make something completely unique.

I am thrilled with excitement for yet another opportunity, to help people grow, and to help people reach a level higher than they thought possible. That is why I do what I do. Having social media following means nothing. It hasn’t got eternity value. Building people up, helping them reach the higher heights, encouraging them to believe in themselves; that is my calling. That is why I am doing this.

We are starting on the 1st of March. The entire project will be run in a secret Facebook group, so that people all over the world can take part.

  1. I live in the States. Can I participate by simply receiving the document/PDF and purchasing my yarn from you?
    Thank you,

    1. Hi Laurie. People from all over the world will take place. You are more than welcome to join. You have complete freedom in the yarn you want to use. You don’t even have to buy it from me. xx

  2. Hi Hilda, I would really like to join The Crazy Coat CAL. The link to add it to my cart so I can purchase it seems to not be working. Can you please help me?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Diane, just make sure you change the number of tickets, from the default 0 to 1, before you click add to cart.

  3. Is there any way for me to participate by knitting instead of crocheting? Would the same principles apply? Or do you plan to have some sort of similar adventure/challenge for a knitter?

    1. Hi Mary
      I do not think it would fair towards you, to join this round. The techniques that will be demonstrated, are all crochet. I will however put my thinking cap on for a knitting version.
