MCAL stands for Mystery Crochet-Along, an online event which runs for a limited time where people work together on the same project. With Mystery crochet-alongs we know the theme of the Crochet-Along but not the specific projects, which are released in parts throughout the event.

To take part in the Mystery Crochet-Along you will need to purchase a copy of the MCAL pattern either on Ravelry, LoveCrafts or Etsy.

Having a Ravelry account isn’t essential but it will help get the pattern updates easier. If you prefer using LoveCrafts they will also send a weekly update email.
If you buy the Amigurumi School of Magic 2 on Etsy you will receive a code to redeem your patterns on Ravelry.

For this MCAL we are using Paintbox Cotton DK, it’s a nice thickness for making Amigurumi.
You can find it on Lovecrafts.com* (Paintobox Cotton DK is 25% OFF until the 18th of September, after that date you can use the discount code “schoolofmagic” at the checkout to get 15% OFF)

Please note the MCAL pattern is not included with the yarn and needs to be purchased separately.

This is the yarn list to make the whole collection and the bonus make:

Champagne White (403)
Banana Cream (421)
Melon Sorbet (417)

Lime Green (429) x 2
Slate Green (427)

Of course you are welcome to use a different yarn! This is a nice stash-busting project, as small makes don’t need as much yardage.

*Affiliate link. You buy at the same price and we will get a small percentage. Thank you!

Depending on your yarn you may need to change to bigger or smaller hook size, find one that works best for you!

A crochet cauldron and 3 magical amigurumi patterns for each one of the 5 parts. All projects are designed to be fun and quick to make
and will work to scale as a complete set when worked in the same yarn.

You are welcome to make all of the weekly patterns or just your favourites – it’s totally up to each maker! We hope you will enjoy this magical adventure and crochet at your own pace.

Sharing on social media is completely optional, we do love seeing all your makes! Make sure to use #amigurumischoolofmagic

To celebrate the MCAL and your makes we will also hold an Instagram and Ravelry giveaway for all those taking part.

Like last year’s MCAL we will surprise you with 1 new bundle of amigurumi patterns each week throughout October. The 5 mystery parts will be all new, with no repeats with last year’s MCAL. For this term we step into the woods in search of mysteries, magic and mischief – who knows what we will discover…
