Stitch Alongs for 2016
For 2016, we had two stitch along that are very different. From the love scarf to shaping blankets. There was technically a third stitch along called the Stitch is Right but the resources of the wheels that would spin are no longer available for us to use. I know... sad!
For crocheters, the idea of working as a community on a solo project is really a lot of fun. Like a yarn aisle startup conversation about having something in common with each other, the Stitch Along concept is about cyber connections. From this concept, people encourage each other.
Crochet Bobble Heart Scarf
This is easy to follow the pattern as the written words and crochet diagrams are available to make the 3D bobble hearts that appear. This is a one-sided pattern. Best of all, once you understand how to follow the diagram, it's pretty much easy sailing throughout the pattern.
You will continue repeating to make more hearts until the scarf is approximately 65" in length.
There were over 350 entries for this project. See the finished examples in the Share the Love Gallery.
Bernat Blanket Stitch Along
The objective for this Mystery Bernat Blanket Stitch Along was about changing shapes. It was the intention of the blanket to go from a circle to square and then finish off as a rectangle.
This four-week mystery is now over and all clues are now available. You can follow along with the pattern that is divided into 4 sections. I've also put the video together for the right-handers so that all 4 are together as one to make it easier to follow.
Here are the PDFs for this Blanket.

The concept is geometric shapes from starting as a circle, converting to a square and then going to a rectangle. It's easy to follow and make your own afghan really quick.
There is no sewing required. We build the afghan as we go. There as over 580 finished blankets made by the participants for this stitch along. See the Gallery of Finished Examples.
