Winter 2022 Mystery Crochet Along

Join us every week in February to make a beautiful (and mysterious) crochet project!

Updated February 22, 2022
Winter 2022 Mystery Crochet Along

We're excited to share our February 2022 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 you'll want to wear as soon as you've finished it!

Our mystery crochet along is not one to miss. Join us every Wednesday in February 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 skipping stitches and crocheting in chain spaces (there’s a video for that next week).
- Crocheting in the round including increasing.

Supplies Needed:

  1. Approximately 284 yards (260 meters) in the main color in any light (DK/#3) weight, cotton blend yarn – I used 1 skein in King Cole Cotton Top DK in 4223 Mist.
  2. Approximately 30 yards (27.5 meters) in each of two coordinating or contrasting colors in any light (DK/#3) weight, cotton blend yarn – I used 1 skein each in King Cole Cotton Top DK in 4224 Teal and 4225 Lilac.
  3. US Size I-9/5.5 mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge.
  4. Yarn needle.
  5. Stitch markers.
  6. Tools for measuring and cutting.

Week 1 Yarn Photo

Finding the Right Tension:

- To make a gauge swatch, chain 23.

- Turn, skip 3 chains (counts as your first double crochet), double crochet in each of the next 20 chains. (21 double crochet)

- Next Row: Turn, chain 3 counts as your first double crochet), double crochet in each of the next 20 stitches.

- Repeat the Next Row until your swatch measures approximately 4.5” (11.5 cm) tall.

- Your stitches should create a fabric that drapes nicely. Pin your swatch flat without stretching to measure. Gauge: 21 dc = 4.5” (11.5 cm) across. Exact gauge is not critical for this project.

Troubleshooting Your Swatch Gauge:

- If you have fewer stitches in 4.5” (11.5 cm) than I have, your stitches are larger than mine. You may want to go down a hook size to a US Size H-8/5 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 4.5” (11.5 cm) than I have, your stitches are smaller than mine. You may want to go up a hook size to a US Size J-10/6 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.

Finishing

By now you may have guessed you have made a lacy scarf with floral embellishments. Arrange the flowers as you see fit on the same side (right/front side) of the scarf but at opposite short ends as shown in the photos. Thread yarn needle with long yarn tail from beginning of each flower and sew each flower to the scarf. Weave in yarn tails onto the back of each flower.

HI How many rows do you have when you reach 11.5 cm tall? I have a hard time finding #3 yarn where I am. I am not using a cotton blend so will that be ok?
