Crochet Alongs are super fun. But Mystery Crochet Alongs are more interesting, exciting and allow you to use yarn from your stash. This one is broken up into 3 parts over 3 days with a GIVEAWAY at the end.
So often I look at my stash and get so many ideas on what to crochet with it. Literally, as soon as I see certain color combinations, ideas are flowing. But I understand that not everyone does it that way. Some crocheters prefer the certainty of a pattern, how it looks at the end and which yarn to use for it. Well, if you remove one of those items from the certainty, you create a mystery.
And that one item is “how the pattern will look at the end”. Combine that with a huge amount of crocheters working on the same pattern, trying to figure out the mystery of how it will look like in the end, making this event a Mystery Crochet Along. The community feeling of an event like this is like no other.
Well, what does a “Crocheter’s Dream” for this Mystery Crochet Along mean?
Let me tell you! It’s the most ideal gift any crocheter can make for themselves. They will use it all the time and has multiple different functions and purposes! So it’s a “dream come true” for a crocheter or crafter.

What will you need for the Mystery Crochet Along?
- WeCrochet’s Brava worsted yarn in these color:
- plummy speckle (1 full skein – get 2 skeins just in case)
- egglplant (only a little bit – less than 1 skein)
- 4.0mm hook -> I used Furls Crochet Odyssey Hook
- or use a hook sise corresponding to the yarn weight you used
- tapestry needle
- hot glue -> IF you don’t like sewing!
Can I use a different yarn?
Yes, you can switch the colors out the way you like. I would suggest to a main neutral color (I used one with speckles) and another color of your choice. Also, I suggest using worsted weighted yarn. WeCrochet’s Brava yarn is very affordable and perfect for this project!
But it’s an ideal project as a yarn stash buster. Use leftover yarn you have any.
What colors should I pick?
Either stick with the colors I picked or pick your favorite neutral and colorful colors.
You can also pick:
- colors of the same tone (example: light vs dark green)
- colors opposite on the color wheel (aka complimentary colors), examples:
- orange and blue
- yellow and violet
When does the Mystery Crochet Along start?
The Mystery Crochet Along will be broken up into 3 Parts. You will likely not know what it will be until you see Part 3 of the CAL. As I want to make sure you all have the materials you will need for the Mystery Crochet Along, we will give you all about a week to collect your materials.
There will be a few extra materials you need for part 3. But I can’t reveal that until then to not spoil the surprise. But you will likely have those materials at home and won’t need to buy them.
Then we will get started. See the schedule below for each part.
I hope to have many people attend this Mystery Crochet Along. It will be a mystery (feel free to guess as we are working on it), although, we won’t tell you what it is to keep it fun and interesting. But, it will also be super exciting as we see you all working on it and get to tell the big reveal at the end.
We are pretty sure you will all like this Mystery Crochet Along Pattern as much as we do. Be sure to share this post with your crochet friends so they all can join in.
Are you excited yet? Let’s grab your materials. We will get started on December 13th, 2021.
