2015 Crochet Along – Mystery Afghan: Clue #1

Clue #1 is out today! You can find it here.

It is a 4″ granny square using only Contrast A (burgundy for me). The pattern also calls for 20 of these. I know what I will be up to this weekend!


Here are my colors reference:

  • Caron Simply Soft – Burgundy (Contrast A)
  • Caron Simply Soft – Off White (Contrast B)
  • Caron Simply Soft Heathers – Grey Heather (Contrast C)
  • Caron Simply Soft Heathers – Charcoal Heather (Contrast D)


I hope you all will following along with my progress (here or through Facebook) or sign-up yourself and post your own progress! I think this will be a great project for myself to learn and grow my skills. I am very excited to be participating in my 1st crochet along! This is the 2015 Crochet Along – Mystery Afghan by The Crochet Crowd.

Lionbrand.com: Learning to Crochet

Everyone learns differently. Lion Brand’s website (www.lionbrand.com)has put together a great layout for teaching the beginner crocheter. Each lesson has a description of the technique along with illustrations. Most also have a video demonstrating the technique. This is a great place to start if you are interested in learning. Go through the tutorials and practice with a skein. Once you are comfortable with the basic stitches, try out a pattern!

Don’t be afraid to get “hooked”!
