We’re down to the last 4! I’ll have some joining ideas for you next week, and I guess I’d better get to the ends on the ones I skipped weaving in… and blocking… But I can’t wait to see all your finished afghans! And thank you to those who filled out the survey as well – I’ve got a good idea of what we’ll be doing in 2015, so I’ll be planning that out over the next couple of months. Remember too that the very last square will be released a day early, on a Wednesday, due to American Thanksgiving. But if this is the first you’ve heard of the 2014 Moogly Afghan Crochet-a-Long, then start HERE to read how it works – and plan on joining in next year!

One request that pops up every year is what the new trends are going to be – in fashion, in design, and in crochet!

Here is my collection of the top 10 Fall and Winter Trends for 2014 – and free crochet patterns that fit in each category!
