Here we are, back again for the third year in a row with our winter mystery blanket! This year I’m happy to bring back some familiar faces along with some new designers.
If you haven’t followed along with one of our mystery blankets before I’m sure you are wondering what makes it a mystery. Well, every day for the month of December you can come to this page to grab a free PDF pattern for an 8×8 inch blanket square. Each pattern will be free for 24 hours only, after their feature day each pattern will be available at the price decided at the individual designer’s discretion. If you do not have time to ‘Hop the blogs’ each day you can purchase our PDF bundle at any time for access to all of the previous day’s patterns and access to each following pattern at pattern release. There is no early access as this helps keep the mystery of the CAL alive!
For this CAL you will need;
All you will need is 3 colours of worsted weight yarn of your choice. We went with; Red, Green and Gold.
Hooks will differ between pattern squares, so just make sure you check your gauge.
Here are the estimated amounts for what we used:
Green: 900- 1000yrds
Hooks: 4.5mm, 5mm, 5.5mm, or whatever hook you need to meet the pattern gauge.
I hope you all enjoy our Crochet Along, please join our Facebook group if you would like to get help on any of the squares or to share your progress so far!!
