A new magical adventure is about to begin...
Dust off the cobwebs from your broomsticks and pick up your crochet wands - it’s time to open the doors for another term at the Amigurumi School of Magic!
The Amigurumi School of Magic is a 5-part Mystery Crochet-Along running between 30th of September - 31st of October 2022. Each part’s lesson is a downloadable PDF with 3 original crochet patterns, released every Friday throughout the month.
Early-bird sign-ups for the MCAL will run until 29 of September 2022
Enrol now and download a 21 pages PDF file with the Welcome letter, Introduction to the Mystery Crochet-Along, a Bonus pattern and our Stitch guide for the projects. The bonus big make for this term is Zucca Treat Basket – it may look like an ordinary pumpkin, but this clever device is the perfect decoy accessory for blending into the crowds of non-magic folk.

- What yarn will we need?
For this MCAL we are using Paintbox Cotton DK (100% cotton, 50gr/125m/137yds), it’s a nice thickness for making Amigurumi.
You can find it on Lovecrafts.com*
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:
Black (402 Pure Black)
Grey (407 Granite Grey)
White (403 Champagne White)
Light orange (417 Melon Sorbet) + 1 more ball for the basket!
Orange (420 Blood Orange) + 2 more balls for the basket!
Green (429 Lime Green)
Lilac (446 Pale Lilac)
Purple (448 Pansy Purple)
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!
Can I use a different yarn?
Of course, dive into your stash or follow one of our suggested palettes in the Introduction document.
You can mix different brand of DK cotton yarn if some colours are not availabe in your preferred shop – or if you already have some of those colours in your stash!
Can I use a different hook size?
Depending on your yarn you may need to change to bigger or smaller hook size, find one that works best for you!
What patterns will there be?
A Zucca Treat Basket and 3 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.
Do I have to make all the patterns in the MCAL?
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.
Do we have to share the projects on Instagram?
Sharing on social media is completely optional, we do love seeing all your makes! Make sure to use #amigurumischoolofmagic #amigurumischoolofmagic2022
We like to hang out in our Ravelry group too!
What's the difference with last year's 'Amigurumi School of Magic'?
Like last years’ 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 explore the world after nightfall, and meet some spooky and weird things along the way.
