After having held many Crochet Alongs already, I always wanted to host a Mystery Crochet Along. Finally, I get to do that. I will tell you exactly what you will need in order to be part of this exciting event where you will create something amazing without actually knowing what you will create until the last Part is released. The pattern is designed such that any level of a crocheter – even a beginner – can make it.
So for all the new crocheters who never have been part of a Crochet Along, let me explain what it is. A Crochet Along (CAL) is an event where a large group of people all work on a certain part of a crochet pattern at the same time. It is usually held inside a Facebook Group. In my case, I will host this Mystery Crochet Along in my own Facebook Group which you should join to see everyone else’s creations and color choices for this event as well.

What will you need for the Mystery Crochet Along?
- bulky yarn in 2 different colors (your choice of color and yarn company, it does not matter) -> I used DMC Natura XL 100% Cotton Yarn in the colors:
- #8 (2 skeins) and #9 (3 skeins), each skein is 50g/75m
- 6.0mm hook -> I used Furls Crochet Odyssey Hook in Purple
- tapestry needle
- general and beginner friendly knowledge of basic crochet stitches
I used 100% bulky Cotton Yarn because the pattern will turn into something where I need to make sure there are not many holes in the end. I do not want to give too much away, but I will tell you that you can use it in the end everywhere.
When does the Mystery Crochet Along start?
The Mystery Crochet Along will be broken up into 3 Parts. You will not know what it will be until you see Part 3 of the CAL. As I want to make sure you all have your materials you will need for the Mystery Crochet Along, I will give you all 1.5 weeks to collect your materials. Then we will get started. Here is the schedule when each part will be released (they will be clickable once the parts are available):
Part 1: May 12, 2018
Part 2: May 19, 2018
Part 3: May 26, 2018
I hope to have many people attend this Mystery Crochet Along. It will not only be mysterious – feel free to guess as we are working on it, although, I won’t tell you what it is to keep it fun and interested – but it will also be super exciting as I see you all working on it and tell get the big reveal at the end.
I am pretty sure you will all like this Mystery Crochet Along Pattern as much as I do. Be sure to share this post with your crochet friends so they all can join in. Also, make sure you will pick 2 colors that you like and fit together well.
Are you excited yet? Let’s grab your materials. We will get started on May 12, 2018.
