    Please clarify: For the contest with this Mystery Blanket Trio, we send in our finished photo to your email. But do we have to be an actual member of your Crochet Crowd Community to participate, and not just following your Facebook page? How do we do that? I’ve sent my photo twice but it does not show on your Flicker page, is that because I need to be a member? Thank you for your help and great tutorials!

      Morning… We have received 2 emails from you but they are not the Bernat Blanket Stitch Along. You don’t have to be a member. Just do the project. Your picture is in the Summer Stitch Along as that’s what the project is. Was sent on Sept 21st.

        Thank you for your response. I’m so sorry to be a bother, I know you are super busy. I am confused, since I have only completed one stitch along with you, and I have only sent an email on Oct 26, and Oct 30. My photo is of Bernat Ripple Blanket (purple and green), Basket and Pillow. It is the same blanket as pictures I see here on this site. Maybe there are 2 people with my name? I am really enjoying my blanket!

    This new mystery blanket is beautiful. I can see that the centre doesn’t have to be three flower granny squares. It can be altered to be more or less if people want to create a huge blanket. I am just curious what the size of the completed blanket is?

    Loved this pattern. It looked Native American to me, so I used gold, sage. red and dusty blue in cotton yarn with K (6.5mm) hook. Just finishing week 5, can’t wait to finish this. Thanks so much for the left-handed videos.

    I received your newsletter once a month not every week. I missed first 4 weeks of this video. Will you please send me every week, not once a month?

    Thank you

    Could the afghan be made with the Bernat Velvet yarn instead of the Bernat Blanket yarn?

    It sounds like a jarring combination of colors but actually works nicely. I am doing mine in antique white, grey, coal, and race car red (which is actually a pinkish red..like the red in Lipstick On My Collar).

    I am using a purple palette: arctic white, light lilac, medium lilac, and purple to match a comforter I have had for years.

    I love working with Bernat Blanket yarn. I am looking forward to this cal. Can you please do a left hand video. I was also wondering if bernat extra and bernat big were similar size, I cant find bernat extra so I was hoping to use the other one. I live in Canada

    I can’t find Bernat Blanket Extra at my local craft store I did find something called Bernat Big. Are they similar?

      Have you taken a look at Joann’s Fabric and Crafts? I just took a look at their website and they have it. I hope that is helpful in your search for the yarn.

    so am i correct in that we need a total of 9 skeins of yarn for the entire “Trio CAL” ? and of course a 8 MM hook if we don’t already have one in that size ? i’m trying to figure up the cost. It’s sad that i have to do that but i’m on a rather tight budget.

      Shop the sales. I never pay full price for yarn unless it is an emergency!

    What alternative colour can one use if they can’t find Aubergine? I have looked at Michaels and another site but they don’t carry it. Jo-ann doesn’t ship to Canada, so ideas would help

      I got my yarn at Michael’s on a coupon and since they don’t have Aubergine I switched my color scheme altogether. I also couldn’t find the Burgundy in velvet so I went with navy blues.

    Mikey, in one of your articles about the JoAnn Stitch Along you suggested using a 10 mm hook instead of an 8. I crochet pretty tight so this would be a good fit for me. If I do this, would I need extra yarn?

      If I’m not mistaken you shouldn’t need more yarn as the increase in hook size allows you to get the proper guage which is why he increased the size of his hook in the first place. 😊

    Color choices for blanket indicate dominate color is Burgundy Plum but I have checked Joann’s website and there is no Burgundy Plum in the color choices although they do have it in the Blanket Extra and Blanket Velvet. Any suggestions?

      Michael’s has the Burgundy Plum but not the Aubergine. I just picked different colors for mine, but if you want the Burgundy I know Michael’s has it.

    Would be nice to show a picture of the finished projects so we would know if we want to crochet along

      It’s a mystery. Each week a new “clue” is revealed. You can wait. Until the crochet along is over and then decide to do it at your own pace. That’s what I usually do if I’m super busy working on other projects.
