2015 CWU & AC Group Mystery CAL

WELCOME TO THE CROCHET WITH US & AMERICAN CROCHET GROUP CAL!

Mistie and I are extremely thrilled to make this project with you!
This blanket is great for your little one and baby gifts. Lets Crochet!
Here is a sneak peek of what we are going to make:


Mistie and I will be taking turns publishing each part of the CAL. You will receive 2 posts each week; one on Monday and one on Wednesday. This Introduction Post will be revised with each Post of the CAL as it is published. You might want to Bookmark this post to find and return to more easily!
Each Blanket is designed by assembling 6 squares together.

RESOURCES AND THINGS YOU CAN DO TO GET READY




YARN AND HOOK USED

This blanket is extremely easy to modify. Jen and I have worked out the sizing and amount of squares you will need to get started.
Our blankets measure 30×36 inches – which is considered a Crib size blanket.
The yarn that Jen and I selected for the blanket is Lion Brand Heartland (Worsted Weight #4) roughly 1800 - 2000 yards and using a 5.0 mm (H) Crochet Hook.
If you would like to make your blanket in a different size here are the measurements.
Please note: The extra 6" calculated includes a total of 6" to the length and a total of 6" width.
