The Crazy Coat Designer’s CAL: Margie Pascoe

We have another coat that is finished! Whoop-whoop!

Here is what Margie Pascoe has to say.

Thanks to social media and all the available online crafting groups, many of you would have seen Hilda Steyn’s current CAL, The Crazy Coat. I read the blurb, watched the video, and had to give this unique CAL a go! 

As Hilda says, her Crazy Coat CAL is a new concept – in just three months you learn everything you need to know to design and create your own coat. Run via a secret Facebook group, there are reading assignments, lots of videos, sharing of opinions, ideas and photos, and constant help and support from Hilda, who, by the way, is an awesome teacher, always patient, and extremely knowledgeable about all things crochet, yarn and design. 

I have completed many CALs over the past couple of years, and this is one of the best! The creativity and camaraderie between group members and Hilda is wonderful, and everyone is positive and helpful. I encourage all aspiring designers or anyone who wants to lift their crochet skills to a new level to sign up here for the next Crazy Coat CAL.

From a design….

To a motif…

To a beautiful little jacket!
