Mystery Crochet Along: Week 2
Welcome to AllFreeCrochet's FIRST Mystery Crochet Along! If you're just joining us and would like some more information or you missed out on the materials list, then learn all about our exciting adventure ahead of us. We're on week two where we'll be creating the main structure of the crochet pattern. I'm telling you, you might be clueless at first about what we're making but it's just so cute! Feel free to take some guesses if you'd like.
18 sts = 4”; 20 rows = 4” in single crochet with smaller hook. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge
Adjustable ring: Holding the yarn a few inches from the end, wrap around your finger. Do not remove wrap from finger, insert hook into the wrap and draw up a loop of
working yarn. Chain one to secure the loop, and remove ring from finger. Work stitches of first round in the ring. Pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring.
hdc2tog = [Yarn over, draw up a loop in next st] twice, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook.
sc2tog = [Draw up a loop in next st] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
1. Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly so stuffing will not show between stitches.
2. Pieces are worked separately then sewn together.
3. Most pieces are worked in continuous rounds, do not join at ends of rounds unless instructed.
4. Week 2 instructions are worked in one piece.
5. Week 3 instructions are worked in 2-row stripes. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete
stitch. Proceed with new color. Carry color not in use up side of piece. Take care to cover carried strands when working edging.
Beginning at top of head, with smaller hook and A, make an adjustable ring.
