    Well some of us are right…I think most of these patterns are from The checkerboard afghan CAL that ends today on Red Heart

    I’ve decided to give this project a try. I only know a few stitches so this should improve my crocheting skills. Now all I have to do is pick the colors and decide if it’s going to be for myself or a gift. In regards to yarn choices would the red heart super saver soft work just as well? My daughter is textile sensitive.

    Oh my goodness! Surely hope I don’t come across as angry, grumpy, or rude here. Not my intentions. IF EVERYONE WOULD READ the contest rules that Mikey has posted, right here……above all these comments….most all of these questions would be answered! I do not understand. The rules must be read and followed if the afghan is to be considered in the Giveaway. So, everyone READ, and find your answers!
    Again, not meaning to sound rude, or cranky, LOL. I just don’t understand some things. I am IN…can’t wait to get started!! 🙂

      I so totally agree. Mikey made it all very clear what we need to do to enter the contest and also, what to do if you are just doing it for fun and don’t want it in the contest. If people crochet like they read, I’m sure they have never finished their project and shouldn’t worry about doing this one. I think they post just for attention. Like “Wow, look…my name is on the board!!” Sorry, but I skip your post.

    I am getting so excited about starting this next week. I’m in the UK so I’ve needed to do a bit of yarn conversion as we don’t get Redheart here but I’m all ready to go can’t wait.

    I am SO looking forward to this. It’s my first try at something like this. I’ve got my colors ready! I’m rushing to finish another project I am working on as I’m trying to keep a promise to myself not to start another project until I finish the one I’m working on.

      Im exactly like you Kathleen! I have watched my mother for MANY years start a million things but rarely finish anything, so I always said when I start something, I want to finish it before starting something else! For the most part, Ive stuck with that, only swaying a couple times to make something for my son! Unfinished projects layin around the house drive me nuts! haha. My moms house is FULL of unfinished things that she has no idea where her patterns are to finish them, etc! Cant wait for this challenge!! Happy Hooking! 🙂

    I just got my yarn shipment for this. It will be my first challenge. I actually bought 10 colors because I couldn’t decide on a border color. I gave myself 2 to pick from when I got to that point.

    My friends and I are so excited to try this challenge! We have taught each other how to crochet and read patterns and I think we’re ready for this! Thanks to Diva Dan’s trendy colors….we only spent 90min picking out our yarn!! I will be in another state when the challenge starts, so I will have to pack another suitcase! Lol.

    What we are wondering is how do we find out the pattern on 7/1? Do we need to sign up, or will the pattern be found on Facebook or the website?

    Thank you in advance for the tutorials! We’re going to need them!

      definitely less than 1 ball for each. Once you see the project, you can make a more informed decision.

    Can’t wait to start this challenge. I’m going to pick my colors as soon as I see what the pattern is going to be. (This is usually how I pick colors for any project.) I just have to make sure I have plenty of time to spend at the craft store to pick colors. 🙂

    I didn’t care for the stitch for the market bag, so 1/2 way through, I ripped it out, rolled the yarn in a ball and worked on another wip. I’m looking forward to the new challenge coming up July 1, and revisiting some of the crochet stitches I don’t use frequently. As usual, I have plenty of yarn in a variety of colors on hand, so yarn isn’t a problem!

    Just a silly question: 9 skeins of 9 different colors or can I use different colors that will equal 9 skeins

    • June 17, 2014 at 6:46 pm
      Permalink

      Sounds to me like it is up us and we can even do it all one color if we wanted.

      I am personally drawn to single colored blankets so they match anything. While I love multi-colors I don’t like them in my decorating scheme and find it hard to match when giving a gift unless you know what their home looms like.

      So my first one may be multi colors but I am quite sure I will also do a monochrome as well for me.

    This sounds like something I can do. I have a computer but can’t afford internet/WiFi. I go to the library and I can’t be on every day. Can the patten be printed or down loaded to a flash drive? Do I really need videos? I’ve been crocheting 40 (+/-) yrs so I’m really good at reading patterns.

    Anyone considering doing variegated yarns for the body? Like all 8 variegated? They’re only 5oz…would that be enough?

    • June 13, 2014 at 6:04 pm

      The directions say 7 oz. If you want to use the variegated yarn, you’ll have to purchase two of each so you have enough.

        I wouldn’t go out and buy double of all variegated yarns you may use… Though Variegated yarns are always less yardage, you will be playing with the concept of changing colours and etc… You will create you own masterpiece in colours that mean something to you… so if you are running low on one colour, you can jump to another… Hopefully that helps you.

      I’m like a lot of others…i’ve seen the other beautiful ones posted by others during the previous challenges. I was taking classes and working full time so didn’t have much time to crochet. I graduated in May so am ready to have time to participate in this afghan challenge over the summer.

    I’m interested in joining… Can you tell us the finished size of the afghan? I’d like to decide whether to use a lighter weight yarn and that would make the afghan smaller.

    Plus, I saw some others asked – will we use the whole skein? Sorry if you already answered it, I couldn’t find the answer.

    Thanks!

    Is there going to be a Facebook event page set up, so I can share this amongst several crochet groups there?

    Also, am I correct in what I think I read, that approximately 200g of each colour is needed? (We don’t have Red Heart in NZ, and I don’t think I can justify rush shipping to the hubby, with all the yarn I’ve got sitting in tubs scattered around the house).

    I just hope this is not a bunch of seperate blocks that will have to be sewn together! I hate those! Still deciding if I will participate or not depending on the 1st clue we receive. If its a block pattern, then I will just use the yarn for something else or return it. Looking forward to July 1st., in the meantime I get to buy some yarn! YEAH!

        Thanks so much, Mikey, for providing all of these different opportunities for us. You are challenging me at every turn because I do not have a lot of experience crocheting. I am currently working on my first challenge (pretty new to The Crochet Crowd) and I really struggled with it despite your excellent video. FInally I got the hang of the sequence of stitches and will be able to complete it. 🙂

        I’m looking forward to this new challenge no matter what it is. Once again, thanks a bunch!

      I agree. I hate them too. I’m betting it will be though since it’s a summer project. I too will wait for clues before making the decision. I also must finish my daughters wedding gift afghan first. I must admit I would love to just use up aome of my stash.

    Oh hooray!!! I just got my colors!!! Decided on no variegated this time, and changed my original idea of what color I’m going to use for the border. Now to not touch that yarn… but that should be easy! I have another pattern to create, and that box of yarn just got here. Here’s to hoping this will break the depression!

    I can’t wait! I”m already starting to try and think what it might look like. I’m trying to think of colors that represent this summer to me and will write them down as I do. Let’s see-there’s green from the farmer’s market (and red and yellow–all the colors of fresh foods), the colors of my flowers, I’d like to go to the beach. I may throw in some blue for the water and beige for the sand whether I get to go or not and purple and red for grapes and wine country two of my favorite summer things. How many colors did you say??? I may have to make two at this rate!

    7 oz. is approximately 200 g of yarn, so if we were to use a 100 g. skein/hank, do we need 2 skeins of each color? Super Saver is such a large skein, I’m curious if we’ll be using the whole skein of each color?

    • June 8, 2014 at 7:11 pm
      Permalink

      Actually, the super saver skeins aren’t all that large! They’re only 7 oz. My crochet club makes 20″ X 60″ prayer shawls for our prayer shawl ministry and 35″ sq. lap afghans for veterans’ hospitals, and they each take anywhere from 4 to 5 skeins each.

      • June 10, 2014 at 10:43 am

        7 oz is equal to about 200 grams. True, it’s not huge like Pound of Love, but it’s twice as big as a typical 100 g hank or skein. I’d like to get 2 matching dye lot skeins from my local yarn shop if we’ll need the full amount in each 7 oz SuperSaver skein. Any advice, Mikey?

        Walmart sometimes has the really big Red Heart Super Saver in the 14oz size. Try looking online @walmart.com if you can’t find it in your local Walmart store. Hopes this helps.

    Hi, I have just shortly been getting posts on face book from your group. I just love a lot of the patterns I have seen. I would also like to find a flag pattern, have seen it but did not share it so I cant find it any more it had 3 red rows and 2 white rows. The blue did not have white stars it had a rosette of red, white, and blue with points like a star. So if I can join this challenge I would love to. Thanks and may God bless you and yours.

    Any chance it could start mid-June? We are going on a vacation to northern BC and I’ll have 12 hours in the car each way to use. Also, I think it’s because I’m still a beginner but 8 weeks doesn’t feel like enough time to complete an afghan.

    Do we have to sign up somewhere to
    do this? How are you entered for the drawing?

      You don’t sign up… you just do… when you are done you email us a photograph. this way you don’t have to sign up and commit and then feel guilty for not finishing.

        Mikey,
        I wrote a comment on your facebook last night. It is rather long. I hope you get a chance to read it. It’s in regards to your use of the term ’email’.

    Maybe a dumb question….do I understand that we will need one skein each of nine colors, or will we see that we need more than one skein of some colors when the pattern is revealed?

    Excited -I’d say I’m an advanced beginner snd have been trying to teach myself through videos or written material. This sounds like such fun.

    Looking forward to this challenge! My husband even commented on my current challenge (Market bag) He said it was beautiful and how much he has seen my skill level improve since joining The Crochet Crowd. That was a huge compliment since normally he does not seem to pay attention to what I make. Thanks Mikey , I couldn’t have done it without you and your team!

      Love hearing how others start to notice our skill building and call attention to it. It is a feeling that your creativity is being acknowledged. You are lucky Pam as I think it’s not a common thing!

      I’m noticing improvement in my crocheting, but I don’t know about my family. But my husband and I are retired. He said he was glad I found a hobby that gave me so much enjoyment. I reminded him that I’ve been crocheting on and off for over 50 years, but didn’t have the time to devote to it that I do now. He wasn’t even aware!

    I am in the same boat as tina hayley. I would like to join in, but I will need an equivalent yarn that I can find in the UK( Although I live in France, I have not found anywhere to buy my yarn, so I order from UK.)

      How exciting! Nine different colours, eh? I am shivering in antici….pation to see the pattern! Now to spend the next two hours on various yarn sites picking and repicking my colours (of which I might change after I see the pattern), which for me is half the fun! Yay yarn, yay crochet, and yay Crochet Crowd!!!

      I believe red heart super saver is the same weight yarn as our Aran weight yarn.also Woolwarehouse stocks Caron simple soft Aran weight yarn ,the weight is 170.1grams/ 6oz, comes in quite a lot of colours including neon brights. Have brought some looks lovely ,but have not started the project yet,hopefully in a day or two. You will have to check if they post to France.

    Sounds intriguing….I have yet to participate in any project since I’ve joined the crowd….I have just enjoyed everyone else’s magnificent pieces….and chuckled at the friendly banter….BUT this has peeked my interest…A Stitch-cation.
