  • This option is the EASY option for Part 3. It has come to my attention, quite late in the project, that we have several people signed up who would prefer an easier option for Part 3. As always, I try to be obliging. This option does not have any Rounds of overlay crochet and is more suitable for the less experienced crocheters in the group. Because this is an afterthought, there are only a few pictures. You will find some time-stamped links to videos to help you on Rounds 36, 37 and 38. These videos are just extracts from Options 1 & 2. No videos are provided for Rounds 39 to 47. It is very easy though.

Video Tutorials

The Old Wool Factory Throw is rated as an INTERMEDIATE pattern by our testers. This means that it does have some challenging sections.
I have produced video tutorials in support of the written pattern. These are available in both right and left-handed versions to assist you. Most Rounds are covered in these tutorials. Producing these tutorials is a huge amount of work but worth it in my view.
The videos are in ENGLISH only. If you prefer, mute my commentary and just follow the visual.
If you are finding any parts of the pattern difficult, please watch the video before asking for help. If you still can’t fathom the pattern then please ask for help. We have a large number of people participating in the CAL, so its imperative that you do your best to help us keep support issues to a minimum. The videos must be your first line of support.
There are links provided at the top of each Round with the time listed to enable you to fast forward to the exact starting place for the Round you are working on.
To keep this project as stress free as possible for all of us, please, please, please use these videos if you get stuck. I have put my heart and soul into this project, as has the rest of the team. You can help us enormously if you do this.


This pattern has been thoroughly tested. However, from time to time little things may get missed in the editing process. Our sincere apologies for these oversights. As errors and typos are found they will be listed here for your convenience. The master document will also be updated.
