    I am wondering how long it takes for our photo to be accepted and added to the others in the contest ? I added mine on Tue. and it said thank you for entering but it still does not show up with the others .I had to add mine on the yarnspiration site because I do not have instagram but I am wondering if it was actually entered or not ?

    I had a difficult time getting started. Adding second color was tricky and then getting the pattern started. Once I did it was easier. However I’m not going to be done by the 18th. So today I posted what I’ve done so far. It looks kinda good. I’m pleased with it. But I’m disappointed it’s not done. However, I want to participate!!

    My email is not working now so may not get messages right away.

    Have we picked a winner for the Merry Cal Contest?

    I am having trouble with the circle ruffling. I pulled it apart and redid it with less tension on the traveling yarn, this is helping somewhat. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

    I am finishing up afghan for this CAL and wanted to be able to enter it in the “MerryCALContest” but I am making this as a gift for my newest grandchild in Dec. I like the border you have shown us but I was wondering if we are allowed to use a different border and still qualify for the contest ?

    Trying to upload my photo here and it won’t let me. Been trying for 3 days now. Also, is there an age limit for entries? My son, 12 years old, wants to try entering his.

    Mikey,

    I’m almost done with both of my Cal’s and wanted to ask…could be I missed it, but is this pattern available via written download…say in pdf format?

    Thanks in advance and I love this pattern. Will be using it again soon. 🙂

        When I do that it takes me to Yarnspirations and it is week 1. Searched their sight for the pattern and it was still only week one.

    Thanks for the excellent tutorial, and such a fun pattern to work with! I’m so excited about how mine turned out that I’m thinking about making more for Christmas gifts!

    I’m working my pinwheel Afghan now in Cape Cod blue and offwhite. Plan on making a second in aqua and soft sage and a third in ocean and violet. Loved learning some tapestry crochet. I started learning to crochet over a year ago and I learned the majority of what I know by watching Mikey’s videos. I am a quilter but have absolutely fallen in love with yarn and crochet and loom knitting! Learning Tunisian and knitting and want to learn even more tapestry crochet. Thanks for all the great videos!!

    Hi Mikey.
    I uploaded a picture of my finished pinwheel last week for the give away. I looked on Yarnspirations and I don’t see it in the gallery with the other pinwheels. Is that because I didn’t use the specified yarn?

      Yarn doesn’t matter. Give them 4 days to take a look at each one to make sure they qualify as they have lots of entries. If it’s still not there, contact their customer service directly.

    I love how my afghan turned out. I was excited to learn the tapestry method to carry the yarn and it worked out very well for me. I really like the fact that there were only about a half dozen ends to weave in since that is my least favorite part of crochet. Thanks for the great pattern Mikey and the tutorials were quite clear. I have been hooking for well over 30 years and am always happy to be able to learn something new. Loved this pattern!

    Working on mine but I’m to tight on the tension it turn into a hat

    I’m not doing well adding second color. Mikey demonstrated doing first round but didn’t demonstrate adding second color to second round. Instead jumped to alternate pattern of adding second color right away. I want to learn to add color to this pattern but for some reason what I’m doing is not looking right. Where can i look to see how? Or can Mikey add this to existing video? I like the look of the original center better.
    Thanks.

    I am working on the Merry Cal pattern and loving it. I have decided to make it bigger to use as a large afghan. I am debating on whether or not to turn it into a large square afghan instead.

    Due to a major family emergency, I did not get started right away but I am looking forward to tackling this when life settles down.

    I could use a printed graph for the spiral (pinwheel) crochet along that just started

    I’m doing the newest crochet mystery, peppermint afghan. I’m on round 17 and I noticed that it’s starting to ripple. Should I not do a couple of crochet increases? I think my tension is consistent.
    Thanks for great project!

      I think I know what I did wrong. In reviewing Mikey’s tutorial, he mentioned pulling yarn that is being carried inside stitches. I’ve ripped back to 9th row and will make sure I tug on this

    I am not getting any emails. I initially received two from The Crochet Crowd but have gotten nothing else. I thought I was getting your magazine through email but have received nothing. Where else can I register my email please.
