Hello my fellow crafters!
For the past 10 weeks I participated in The Crochet Crowd‘s Mystery Afghan Crochet Along. Each week, Mikey would reveal a new clue in making this beautiful piece. For years I have followed Mikey and admired his ability to bring an entire crochet community together. It has motivated me to do something similar. This crochet along project has had its highs and lows. I am supremely satisfied with the final product, but at times, I was definitely challenged by it.
I struggled with Weeks 4-5, but my favorite was to see the squares as they transformed in Week 3. The highlight of the entire project was making the border. Before that, I felt like it looked like a bag of confetti thrown everywhere, but the border definitely tied it all in to make it a piece that I will definitely cherish or gift. I did have a lot of leftover yarn which I found surprising, but I can always use yarn, so that’s not a bad thing! I would consider doing more of these crochet along projects in the future. I had a lot of fun with this challenge, and each week’s reveal was exciting to see! I would highly recommend trying something like this to any crocheter.
Below are photos of each step that I took. If you click the photo, it will link you to the video tutorial that was provided by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd and Yarnspirations.
