Progress With Mystery Crochet Afghan

Progress With Mystery Crochet Afghan

This week involved two clues

This week was a bit of a surprise in our challenge for the mystery afghan. We received two clues from Mikey and Yarnspirations. That is kind of cool except that now we will have to wait for 2 weeks to get Clue #8.

When I first watched the video clue, I was a little intimidated but got my twenty squares out and started in. We are joining those squares together but in an unusual way. The stitches and the way we work with them create a braided effect. It was a little hard but once I got my rhythm going, it turned out to be pretty easy.

Apparently, I was not the only one to feel the intimidation. Goodness there were some negative comments from the peanut gallery. Some didn’t even give it time to try it. One hour after the clue was released the negativity started. Now, the video was over 40 minutes long, so they couldn’t have given themselves much time to try to get their hooks in the groove.

The comments were really kind of sad because Mikey puts a lot of effort out for all of us and those comments hurt his feelings. Hopefully, there have been enough positive comments now and he is feeling better.

I am loving the braided look to the joining of these squares! Very different and unique! I will remember this technique and use it again, now that I know how to do it. Stunning!

I mentioned this before and now that we are close to being done, I will say it again. If I had seen this pattern available somewhere, I would have passed. Not because I didn’t like it, but because it just looks like it would be too difficult for me to tackle.

Taking it in bite size chunks with awesome video clues along the way, I have discovered that it isn’t nearly as hard as it looks. I am also amazed at what a few tricks with chain stitching can create!

The border must be some kind of wonderful because it will take us three clues to get all of the instructions. I can hardly wait!
