Snuggle Up Fall Challenge
Crochet season is full swing this fall and what better way to snuggle up with Bernat Blanket Yarns. Easy to crochet and super thick to make crocheting quick and easy.
We have a fun challenge of 4 different projects that you can choose from. You may have already completed one of these projects already. So you will qualify whether you are just crocheting it now or just snapping a photo of something you may have already done.
With Michaels Stitch’n Win Opportunities. Specially marked Bernat Blanket Balls have a Stitch’n Win Opportunity. Prizes include
- 2 – Grand Prizes of a Caribbean Cruise.
- 20 – $500 Cash Prize
- 50 – $100 Michaels Gift Cards
- All Stitch’n Win have random prizes of 10%, 25% and 50% in all yarns marked with the logo of Stitch’n Win.
Crochet Challenge Prizes
- We have 4 Bernat Blanket Prize Packs to Win that will include an Official Crochet Crowd Yarn Tote and Crochet Crowd Pin. You will win the equivalent off the finished project. The projects have different yarn quantities, so when you enter your challenge for the project, you will win the yarn equivalent for that project. So you can either do another similar project or use the yarn however you wish.
The following is a link to the galleries to see what has been submitted. We need at least 4 days to process your finished photos. The galleries will be updated in alphabetical order by first name of the crocheter.
If you don’t see your submission after 4 days, email us again with your photo with your name and address.

Lush Life Afghan
The Lush Life Afghan consists of 6 Bernat Blanket Balls. 3 Balls each of 2 colours. It is rich with texture and an easy pattern to remember.
It highlights a room with an accenting afghan while keeping you cozy while watching TV. These also make for a great Christmas gift for someone you love too.
The Hibernate Blanket consists of 6 Bernat Blanket Balls. 4 Balls of 1 Colour, and 1 Ball of the other 2 colours. It’s using the moss stitch that you would find in garments and even projects like Planned Pooling.
As fall hits, our bodies with lack of sunlight tend to go into hibernation mode. As it cools down for the winter, you can hook this project up and keep cozy under it as it grows.
Another easy to remember pattern that is perfect for you or for gift giving.
Popcorn Snuggle Sack
No binging is complete without the savoury taste of buttery and salty popcorn this winter. This consists of 14 different sizes of Bernat Blanket Yarns to make this popcorn box. We will gift you enough yarn to do the adult size as shown in the picture.
Balls range from the 150 g to the 300 g depending on the colour. I personally have crocheted this from start to finish and absolutely loved it. I think this is so much cool and I enjoyed hooking it together.
Unicorn Snuggle Sack
For someone special in your life, how about the Unicorn Snuggle Sack. Where unicorn wishes may come true and faces with delight light up as you gift a completed Unicorn Snuggle Sack.
The sleepy unicorn is pretty simple to crochet and has the cutest and easiest locks for hair.
We will allow options to leave on or off the Unicorn Horn. Leaving off the horn reminds me of a Pony. If a child is asking for a pony and you know you won’t get them a pony. You can trick them with a Pony Snuggle Sack.
