Charming - 6" Square

Good Monday morning everyone!

Today I am presenting my newest pattern - a cute little 6" square designed especially for the Mystery Lapghan Crochet-a-Long. This MCAL is hosted by Cylinda of Crochet Memories and Sheri of The Country Willows.  

It involves 30 crochet designers (including myself), who have teamed up to design 36 original 6” squares using worsted/aran weight yarn and a size US-I/9 (5.5mm) hook.

Three times a week – M/W/F - from 08/17 through 11/06, a new square will be released. By the end of the CAL, you’ll have a 36-square lapghan to gift or keep! Prizes will be awarded.

    1. Hi, Jennifer. If you want to join the Facebook group, I believe you have to click on the "JOIN GROUP" button. It is a closed group and you will be added to the membership. That link is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/mysterycal/

      If you just want to follow the CAL without the FB group, you can follow along at this link: http://www.crochetmemories.com/blog/mystery-lapghan-crochet-a-long/

      Hope this answers your question. :)

  7. Hi! I just posted a comment...unsure as to whether it posted or not. I am wanting to join the group as well...but I keep getting the same "error" message when attempting to open the patterns. I have already began working on some of the squares, but I am a brand new beginner, therefore I still have a TON to learn! Thanks you for giving us the opportunity to learn! :) Kristi

    1. Hi Kristi - Have you joined the Facebook group? If you have, you may want to post over there about your troubles with the patterns. It seems that there has been a little problem with one of the patterns, as far as I can tell, but it may have been sorted out. I hope you are enjoying the CAL. Lots of fun!
