Amigurumi blind CAL is coming again!

Christmas cal amigurumi

The year 2020 started with a super fun blind crochet along. Let`s do it again! I am inviting you to join me and other crafters in a 6-day crochet along. We´re going to make something cute and Christmassy.

Want to join? Let me explain how it works below.

Christmas cal amigurumi


  • Amigurumi blind Christmas-themed CAL (crochet along) takes place in October 12-17, 2020.
  • The participation is free.
  • The CAL is held in English.
  • It`s a blind CAL, so you won`t know what you`re making in advance, but I´ll promise it`s going to be something cute and Christmassy :)
  • The pattern will be released in my blog in parts, so you will have a moment of crochet every day.
  • We will have 5 days for crocheting the parts and 1 day for assembling. The secret project will be ready in less than a week.
  • Questions about the pattern can be asked in the comments of the blog.
  • You are allowed to share the photos of your make during and after the CAL. Remember to add #AmigurumiBLINDcal and #lilleliispattern.
  • Do not share the instructions of this CAL in social media.
  • At the end of the CAL, the pattern will be published in my free patterns.
  • There is nothing special you need to do to participate. Simply visit this blog starting from October 12. However, you might leave this post a comment if you`re planning to join (this is just for me so I know how many of you there will be).


The pattern is written in easy skill level. You need to know the magic ring, chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet, working in the front loops only. And of course some basic knowledge of sewing and embroidery.


  1. Yarn – 5 colors of sport / 5 ply or DK / 8 ply weight cotton or wool – gray, red, white, black and blue. I mixed different leftover materials. For the best result do not change the shade of color A, B, C and D. Color E can be replaced with green or brown.
  2. Crochet hook 2.5 mm (B)
  3. Polyester fiberfill
  4. Black safety eyes (6 mm)
  5. 2 small buttons
  6. Stitch marker
  7. Darning needle
  8. Scissors
amigurumi christmas cal supplies

What do you think? Will you join?

    Yes, I would love to learn how to create Amigurumi,
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    • lilleliis says:

      Yes, of course. Make sure you choose a suitable crochet hook to work with (probably a little bigger) and maybe 8mm safety eyes would work better.

    Thank you for the possibility to participate in such a challenge 🤗

  7. Alison says:

    I’ll definitely be joining. I have participated in all your CALs this year and loved every single one of them. I learnt so much from the safari CAL. Thank you. The timing of this one couldn’t be better as we are going back into lockdown and the weather is not brilliant. Looking forward to it. 😊

  10. Lyn says:

    Yes I’m definitely interested having made the little reindeer last time.

    I’m already on your mail list

  11. tflores says:

    Yes, count me in please!
    I was rather upset when I was not able to join your Safari CAL because of lack of time.
    But I have nothing much going on at the moment so this could not have come at a better time!
    Also, thank you so much for offering this CAL for free! :)

  12. Melissa Allen-Desabrais says:

    I am excited to participate in this! I have joined all of your CAL’s so far this year. You have the best patterns. So cute and very easy to follow.

  13. Skyler says:

    So excited to try this!
    I just started my own blog and would love to talk about my experience doing this on there if its okay with you!

  14. Elena says:

    • Ross says:

      Hola! Yo encantada de participar en tu mystery kal y vamos a echarle ganas muchas gracias .

  16. Josianne Fitzgerald says:

    Yes, please. Am glad the CAL will be shorter. I enjoyed the safari CAL but it was spread out for too long. I found it hard to be motivated for the third animal. (Was it the lion?)

  17. Karen Snell says:

    I will be joining in, I’m hoping this will get my crojo back, recently lost our dear dog of over 11 years, and now my Son has left for Uni.
    I don’t do well with change at all, and it has affected me muchly….
    Thank you for this xxxxxx

  18. Karen Jordan says:

    I’m looking forward to taking part, just hope my results turn out almost as good as yours
