Hint

Pathways and Gardens are the hints for this. Smell the flowers, follow along the established pathways. There are no flowers to sew on but that doesn’t mean you won’t see flowers. There isn’t anything in our video or pattern collection that looks like this. I pushed and did the math to make it work!

Finally, the name of the blanket was affectionately named by Jeanne. I was doing a lot of math trying to get the corners not to pucker! It’s like the geometry wasn’t working. In the end, the geometry was solved. Therefore a lesson in geometry!

    Really enjoyed doing the study of geometry pattern. My color selection makes me feel like I’m vacationing again in Key West, Fl. Thank you for great instruction.

  2. Janet Holbrook says:

    Where \how can I get a written pattern for the study of geometry??. If its in Mikey’s book, ill wait til it arrives, otherwise I’d love to get a hold of the pattern. Where I live internet sucks, and where I can print won’t allow this site. Go figure….

    1. Wendy Maruna says:

      The Study of the Journey is in Mikey’s book.

      To get to the pdf for the weekly lessons for Study of Geometry- the blue button right above Yarn Usage There is a download lesson button for each week’s written pattern I am not sure why you wouldn’t be able to print from there, it is our sponsor’s website. Hope that works for you

  3. mary morris says:

    Hi there, I am doing my first CAL, with you. Just retired after 44 years teaching Special Education. When is the due date for the final picture? I am about 1 week behind but hope to make progress this weekend. Where do I sign up to officially be part of the CAL?
    I have followed you for years, just did not have time to crochet a CAL. EXcited!!!

    1. Wendy Maruna says:

  4. MaggiePearl says:

    Mikey, When joining the triangles to the sides of the diamonds at the end of week 3, do I leave the Chain 1 space at the corner point of the diamond free? Does it get worked into the border?
    Thank you.

    1. Mikey says:

      When you sew… pull the ch 1 on both of the triangles together as 1. The connection is used in Week 4.

  5. Renae says:

  7. Ione says:

    What does Dscp mean in the written pattern?

    1. Mikey says:

      Let me check the pattern, that type of information should be in the abbreviation description.

    2. Mikey says:

      I’ll follow up in a bit. I need to do a couple more urgent things first.

    3. Mikey says:

      I forgot the PDF was open on my adobe. It’s in the abbreviations description.

  12. Nina merkley says:

    Mikey can you show me how to download the pattern? Can’t seem to be able to figure it out 🙂

    1. Wendy Maruna says:

      The link you got in your email, you will
      click “go to lesson”. On that website, you will scroll down past Mikey’s photo – there is a box that says “tips”, just under that tip is the download button that will bring up the PDF.

      1. Rosellen Russell says:

        I still have not received an email , so I can’t download the link.

    1. Mikey says:

      Hit the contact on the top menu and send me an email and I will handle your request on email. I can send it to you.

  14. Deb Carlson says:

    I think it looks like a beautiful Christmas star. I am going to use red, greens, royal blue, white, and golds. Excited to begin

  15. Sandy Ryan says:

    Mikey, this is BEAUTIFUL ❤️!
    I’m planning on making five of these in different color ways for family Christmas presents. It’ll actually ALMOST clean out my stash. (I’ll be down to one tub of scrap with a few neutrals combined.)
    Anyway, is there any chance the complete pattern can be released on July 23rd so we can work ahead? Ya know, some if us were over achievers in school and did our homework early there too. Thanks for everything!

  16. Megan says:

    I just purchased my yarn today with the help of Diva Dan’s colour combos! I cannot wait to start this project, it is absolutely beautiful! Your SAL are so fun! Hope you are enjoying your summer so far!

  17. Shelia says:

    Mikey, was there going to be a diagram that we could use to play with colors to put them together and decide!?! Can’t wait!!

    1. Mikey says:

      I don’t know how to make this a colouring book style diagram for you to do that with. I’m sorry. It’s beyond what I am capable of delivering.

  18. Cherald E. (Cherie) Kocurek says:

    I love what I see on the site. I am interested in the Study of Geometry, but my schedule prevents stitch-along time. When will you release the pattern, both written and graphed?
    I am in South Texas and usually don’t start larger blankets and afghan until October, and usually don’t work on them until late evening. I don’t sell my larger pieces, but I do gift and donate them.
    Thanks for any information you can give me.

    1. Wendy Maruna says:

      The pattern releases July 23rd, one part each week for 5 weeks

    Can’t wait!!!!

    1. Pamela Inskeep says:

      I put it on my calendar. Hey, Mikey! When do we get the supplies list for yarn and hooks, etc.? I want to be ready to crochet on the first day of the SAL. Thank you for these exciting patterns. Every one has been a lesson in learning and fun!

      1. Wendy Maruna says:

        This link to sign up is live now (as of this morning). So you can get the pattern delivered to your email box Check out our intro video where Mikey gives us a sneak peek at what we are in for on this summer’s texture journey

  20. Hi can you let us in on the yarn suggested and the weight of the yarn. I plan the project by sale prices.

    1. Mikey says:

      I cannot yet. The yarn is in transit to the warehouse for online shipping. Some of the colours are being hidden online until this opens so that there is enough stock for this challenge. July 2nd is the release of this information. There will be three weeks of advance time so people will have time to shop and decide their own colour schemes if they wish.

      1. Kim George says:

        I’m so excited! I bought my yarn this morning. Going for succulent colors….blues, purples, greens, and white.

      2. Robin tOWERY says:

        Hi Mikey…I tried to order the kit and one of the colors was already sold out. Frustrating that even if I changed the color, Yarnspiration site says I can’t checkout because something in my cart is not available 😢😢😢

      3. Mikey says:

        I’m sorry that is happening to you. I cannot fix that here but you can contact Yarnspirations at this URL if you want to reach out. https://www.yarnspirations.com/ca-en/contactus?utm_source=Influencer_TCC&utm_medium=blog&utm_campaign=2021_06_17_Contact_Us_|_Yarnspirations

  21. Avonice Martin says:

    I would like to sign up for the Summer 2021 crochet a long.

    1. Mikey says:

      Afternoon. it will open for sign-ups July 2nd. Please check back then to sign up. 😀 Michael

  22. Natalie says:

    OMG Mikey, I can not wait until July 2! I have enjoyed the other Summer CAL so much, and have been looking forward to this for quite awhile. Just FYI, so far, The Study of Texture is my favorite, I am working on another one while I wait patiently…

    1. Karen Tyra says:

      Where & when do we sign up?! Can’t wait!

      1. Mikey says:

        I will have that detail on July 2nd. The sign up isn’t ready yet. The link will be here on this article.

  23. Nancy H says:

    Mikey, you tease, taunt, and torment us!!! I am intrigued by the “Summer Journey” story. I’m impressed with your design journey notes (3 different designs, ending with 3 trials of the last design…whew). Thanks and much respect both for your attention to us (ie NOT too simplistic and giving us an interesting project NOR leaving us with too many colors & wasted yarn) and for the commitment to your personal integrity (ie your heart in each design and your compulsion to accurate counts/math).

    As ever, thanks to Dan for acting as your sounding board and pushing you to your best!!

  24. NaPua Oney says:

    I can hardly wait to see it!! Thank you Mikey for sharing the “behind the scenes” stories for me it makes it feel more like friends getting together over drinks.

  25. Nancy deGans says:

    Can’t wait for this ‘Study’…wish it was starting sooner, but I understand. I am sure I will find other projects to work on while waiting.
    Really excited for this one Mikey!!

  26. Lori Dupont says:

    UPDATE: it is the Study of Possibilities That I am waiting for. 💜💜

    1. Mikey says:

      Yes, I haven’t had it tested yet as I am swamped on other things. I am dying to push it out too. I don’t know when yet.

    2. Kathy says:

      I love crocheting with Mikey.

      1. Mikey says:

        Thank you for your enjoyment of crochet. I love to share crocheting experiences.

  27. Lori Dupont says:

    I hope this was the one we saw a peek of, months ago….I am so looking forward to that one!

    1. Mikey says:

      I haven’t leaked a photograph of this one as I struck out twice in the design and produced two designs that weren’t to standard. So I carefully gaurded this one so it wasn’t in the backgrounds or showing progression just in case it didn’t work out.

  28. Sandy says:

    I’ve loved all your “Study” series so I can’t wait to see this one!

    1. Mikey says:

      Thank you for your enthusiasm.

  29. Rea W. says:

    Is this a virtual crochet along or just local?

    1. Mikey says:

      Always virtual. We have a ‘home studio’ and I don’t have people in my home. Cyber is the best place for my lifestyle.

  30. Maggie says:

    I can’t wait!! I’m so looking forward to seeing the pattern revealed and my completed pathway uncovered!!

    1. Deb says:

      I loved the previous studies of textures and am confident this one will be spectacular as well. Any idea on the start date?

      1. Mikey says:

        Probably second week of July. I don’t know that for certain though.
