    I have been trying to submit my blanket but it keeps coming back MAILER-DAEMON. I have copied and pasted the information and still it comes back. Also can we submit more than one blanket? I have made two and just wondered if I could submit both in separate submissions?

    I really enjoyed the CAL. The videos really helped with the stitches and also the finishing. My blanket turned out great.

    How do I access the gallery for finished projects for the Bernat Blanket Stitch Along fall 2017? I just cannot seem to find a link to it and nothing related comes up when I place it in the search bar.

    Thanks

    I’m addicted to this yarn BERNAT BLANKET YARN , but I’ve never washed it. Does the yarn keep it’s shape? Or does the sts loosen up? Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      It washes beautifully! I wash on delicate and then dry on low but it does take extra time to dry whether or not you put it in the dryer alone doesn’t seem to make a difference just make sure it’s super dry before you take it out.

      But don’t forget wash on delicate!!! dry on low!!!!

    I was wondering where we can find the written pattern for week 3.

    I’m looking for the written pattern. I don’t have enough data to watch videos and that stinks. I would appreciate a way to get the written pattern, thanks!!

      Follow the GET PATTERN button on the article and it will take you to the downloadable written instructions. I get the data issue. I don’t think you are alone.

    Hi, Mikey
    It’s official. I give up. You and your video are excellent but I just am having a heck of a time with the tension. I have ripped the entire project back to the beginning SEVERAL times and gone up a size (or two) in hooks and it still comes out looking like a salad bowl. I am so frustrated that I spent all this money on yarn I’m not comfortable with. Maybe I will go back in a few months and do this pattern using double or triple strands of regular yarn, but right now I just want to pull my hair out.

      I had the same problem and just increased my hook to a size N. That worked for me.

      I did it in regular worsted weight, 4 play with yarn left over from another project. I had never done the over lay stitching. It is the size of a fair lapghan. It lies flat and I really like it. I’m handicapped and the blanket yarn is was too expensive. Especially for nine balls. I used a K hook. The pattern was fun. Hope all works out for you.

    I wasn’t going to do this CAL….too many other projects to do, too many WIPs calling my name, the Blanket yarn is hard to work with, excuse after excuse in my mind. Then the first clue came out and I fell in love with the first week’s work. I loved the push to “check your gauge.” This was a problem for me last year. When I checked, I had to go from the recommended 8 mm hook to a 10 mm, but my square turned out so nice. Can’t wait for the continuing weeks mystery. Thanks to Yarnspirations, Joanns and The Crochet Crowd (Mikey especially) for what looks like will be another beautiful blanket.

    So are the contrast colors in addition to the base colors? If so, what are those?

      I’m afraid they’re calling them all “Contrast colors”, which is confusing. You only need 4 colors. I guess they just wanted to let you know that there are 4 colors in the project instead of just one.
      They confused me with this last year, too, but now I know how they word things.

        They are saying that due to being a mystery. Would normally be MC, A, B and C. However, you are crocheting in the dark, sort of speak. So they colours are suggesting of contrasting to give a hint on how far the colours should be from each other. I was confused by this as well at first.

    I would like to do this project but do not have the money to buy the Bernat Blanket yarn. Beside it is too hot for where I live. I have medium weight yarn available would it be all right to use that. Should I use the J hook?

    Hello I have a simple question. The Twist contrast yarn is that baby twist? That is all I’m finding. Plus where can I get it if it is not.

      I see a couple colors of the twist available online at JOANN.com. If you choose the baby twist, that’s fine, but the balls are smaller, so you will need more.

        I live in Canada. Ordering from Joann’s is expensive. Exchange and shipping. Plus I have 2 colours chosen so far and they are Plum Forest (Variegated), Purple Plum (Contrast A) and I’m thinking a an off white (Contrast B) if I can find it. All I can find is vintage white. I may pick another colour though. The variegate gives me a few options. I just need a twist colour to go with what I have.

    I love your CAL but I don’t have the money to buy that much blanket or bulk type yarn so it looks like I can’t join this one but I will follow along and try it when I can get the yarn it will have to be after Christmas as all my yarn is made up for presents.

    I did the one last year, and it went well beyond anything I thought I had the skill for at the time–but it turned out great, and it’s my cats’ favorite blanket now. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I’ll need to do this one so they each have one!

    I cant locate the colors you suggested cloudy sky varig or twist online, can you give me some other suggestions that would go with the other 2 colors…….if not something in shades of plum/burgundy as I love red tones? Thanks love you to pieces.

      I cannot find the ‘twist’ anywhere, and I’m confused…the info at Joann.com says you will need 7 balls of yarn, yet the written instructions indicate 9, also, written instructions say to use a L hook and the info at the Joann sight says M hook…can you please clarify the information for me….

      There is a knitted version during the Stitch Along. You will follow that pattern if you want to do the knitting Stitch Along. They are not even close to the same design.

      I, too, am wondering about this.. It says the clues will be emailed to us, but I can’t find where to sign up for them…(?)
      On the The Mystery Stitch page at the bottom, there is a place to sign up for emails, but it is not working. (Or is that for emails from joann’s in general?
      Thank you in advance,. & I’m so excited to try these (I’m going to try both crochet & knitting (even tho knit skills are beginner) lol

    I couldn’t see which size ball you are using. I could just be overlooking as usual. I assume these are the large balls.

    Hi Mikey, I can’t wait to get started. I love crochet projects. I’ve been crocheting for 44 years. Ever since my mother taught me how to crochet, in 1973, when I was pregnant with my first child. Since then I’ve crocheted hundreds of afghans, baby afghans, dresses, dolls, shawls, doilies, baskets and so on. I love your love of crochet, your enthusiasm and techniques. Plus, teaching the next generation of crocheters is so important. I taught my daughter and others to crochet also, in hopes of passing along this wonderful craft. I love the projects you come up with as so many others do. Keep up the wonderful work you do so well and I will be following you and doing your projects along with all your followers for years to come. Thanks for all you do and continue to do. Terri ~

    Hi Mickey
    I attended the first day of the huge tent sale in Listowel Ontario Canada. I have attended many others in Listowel and it was amazing! I have one sugestion and that is that the line ups are very long as is the line inside to pay , a big majority of the people attend are elderly and this year there was absolutley no where to sit down if necessary. I was there for 3 hours and most of that time was spent in line ups! not sure who’s idea it was not to have tables but my suggestion is to rethink that dicission .
    one elderly lady had to be brought to the front of the line to go thru due to the fact that she was going to pass out with the lack of circulating air and long standing time.
