Original Post: October 19, 2023

I’m so pleased to announce our very first Hanukkah themed CAL here at CAL – Crochet A Long. Hanukkah is the Jewish eight day “festival of lights”, celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, prayers, traditional foods and gifts. Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after it was defiled by the Selucids in 164 B.C.E., and is one of the happiest Jewish holidays of the year.

Our 7 week Hanukkah Afghan CAL begins today. We’re sharing the estimated yarn amounts necessary to create one of two designs (below). There is an English version which says “Happy Hanukkah”, shown in the featured photo of this as blog post and there is also a Hebrew version, pictured below. Instructions for both will be available here on our blog….in both written form and in chart form.

I had a great group of women working behind the scenes to be sure we got everything correct. These ladies include Yael, Sarit, Iris, Rozi, Esther, Rivka, Ofra, Helene, Lauren, Irith and Tami. Thank you for the patience and much needed guidance while putting all the Hanukkah themed pictures together. Without your help none of this could have been possible.

After I came up with the concept for this CAL, I knew it couldn’t come to to life without the time, talents and patterns of 5 very talented designers. All worked tirelessly to design, edit their patterns. I believe what they created is truly a masterpiece! The detail of the design is spectacular. What a perfect gift to open on one of the nights of Hanukkah or to display on the back of a couch during the holiday season.

Please follow our designers on social media, join their Facebook groups, like their pages, favorite their pattern stores and subscribe to their blogs. They are all amazing and so very talented! You will not want to miss out on what they are doing!
