Fall 2021 Mystery Crochet Along

Join us every week in October for a mysterious crochet along for a cozy, autumn-inspired project!

Updated October 19, 2021
Fall 2021 Mystery Crochet Along

We're excited to share our October 2021 Mystery Crochet Along! With this fun event, we'll release the instructions for a mystery pattern over 4 weeks. By the end of the month, you'll have crocheted a brand new (and awesome!) crochet pattern.

We've joined forces with the incredibly talented Marie Segares from Underground Crafter to bring you this crochet along, so you know the end result will be as gorgeous as it is fun to crochet.

But here's the twist: you won't know what you're crocheting right away! Looking for a hint? It's a piece that your fall wardrobe has been waiting for!

Our mystery crochet along is not one to miss. Join us every Wednesday in October for each exciting new installment of an exclusive pattern by the wonderfully skilled Marie Segares. 

How do I join? In order to be updated with the latest set of instructions every week, make sure that you're subscribed to the Hooked on Crochet newsletter from AllFreeCrochet, and keep an eye on your inbox! We'll be sure to send you an email each week to bring you the next step in the crochet along.

PLUS! Don't forget to share with us your progress every week in the comments down below. We can't wait to see how yours turn out!

Week 1: Supply List and Gauge Swatch

I’m Marie from Underground Crafter and I’m excited to be back for another mystery crochet along on AllFreeCrochet! In this post, I’m including a complete supply list and schedule for the crochet along, along with tips for finding the right tension for this project.

At the end of our crochet along, you will have a lovely accessory that you can wear, gift, or donate!

This is a crochet project that an advanced beginner can complete. To complete this project you’ll need to know:

- Basic crochet stitches including chain, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch.
- Crocheting flat in rows including increasing.

Supplies Needed:

  1. Approximately 900 yards yards (823 meters) in any bulky weight yarn – I used 6 skeins in King Cole Autumn Chunky in 5255 Frozen.
  2. US Size K-10.5/6.5 mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge.
  3. Yarn needle.
  4. Stitch markers.
  5. Tools for measuring and cutting.

Finding the Right Tension:

- Using double crochet, create a swatch approximately 4” (10 cm) square, starting with a crochet hook 1 size larger than what you would usually use for bulky (#5/chunky) weight yarn.

- You can find out more about crochet hook sizes here.

- Exact gauge is not critical for this project.

- Your stitches should create a loose fabric that drapes nicely, but should not have holes or gaps between stitches. Pin your swatch flat without stretching to measure.

- My stitches measured approximately 9.5 dc = 4” (10 cm).

Troubleshooting Your Swatch Gauge:

- If you have fewer stitches in 4” (10 cm) than I have, your stitches are larger than mine. You may want to go down a hook size to a US Size J-10/6 mm hook if your fabric seems too “hole-y.” Or, you can continue with the hook and tension you have, but your project will be larger than the sample and your yarn requirements may be different.

- If you have more stitches in 4” (10 cm) than I have, your stitches are smaller than mine. You may want to go up a hook size to a US Size L-11/8 mm hook if your fabric seems too “stiff.” Or, you can continue with the hook and tension you have, but your project will be smaller than the sample and your yarn requirements may be different.

- You can find out more about gauge in crochet here.

Is it a shawl?

I plan on using a #4 weight yarn. Will I have to change my count stitch?

Question for the week 2 on pattern are you supposed to join before turning,
