Join Diamonds tog: Cut strand of B 94″ [234 cm] long. Sew Motifs tog, using whip stitch along with back loops starting at a midpoint corner from one side jumping over to center point to attach other two triangles across at the same time. This will help pull in the center points to have a beautiful closed look in the centre.

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!

    when will you post the winners of the gifts for the Study of Geometry?
    Thanks mary

    • Mikey

      I have to do this… but yes, I will post on Facebook once the draw is made. I have to buy boxes from Home Depot so I can prepare the shipments. Sorry for my delay.

      • mary

        just wanted to know, no rush, my first cal, I enjoyed it, I will watch facebook. Have a happy good day.
        Mary

  2. I want to attempt this diamond pattern as follows BUT want to make it larger in order to create a rectangle childs blanket something like 36×46 or 36×50 No set measurements. My question is what stitch do you recommend in order to complete such a task? Thank you in advance

    • Mikey

      You can use any stitches but be mindful the repeating of the how the pointed corners are done and how the middle corners are done need to be consistent. I found changing anything beyond Double Crochet it would buckle. I tried three times in this design with severe frustration over the buckling as it get very real once you get bigger. I think the secret is maintaining the corners as is and keeping the stitch heights consistent in growth.

  3. Betsy Conner

    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.

  4. Janet Holbrook

    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….

    • 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

  5. mary morris

    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!!!

    • So happy you are joining us for the summer stitch along. The deadline to submit your entry to us is September 30th by 11pm Atlantic time. In the article, please review Giveaway General Guidelines and How To Submit for important details for submission guidelines and directions. Happy Stitching

  6. MaggiePearl

    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.

    • Mikey

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

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful designs, Mikey. I really appreciate your guidance, your patience, and especially your sense of humor. Love to you and to everyone who makes your work possible. You are a blessing.

    What does Dscp mean in the written pattern?

    • Mikey

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

    • Mikey

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

    • Mikey

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

      Hi, I have signed up twice for Crochet Study of Geometry Stitch Along, had no reply and no written pattern even sent to me, feeling frustrated.

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

    • 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.

      • Rosellen Russell

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

  15. Mary Pelchat

    i have my yarn – ready to go – but I never received the pattern although I signed up for it. I can use the tutorials but I prefer written pattern so I can do it while hubby is watching TV.

  16. Deb Carlson

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

  17. Sandy Ryan

    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!

  18. Megan

    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!

  19. Shelia

    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!!

    • Mikey

      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.

  20. Cherald E. (Cherie) Kocurek

    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.

    • Pamela Inskeep

      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!

      • 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

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

    • Mikey

      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.

  22. Avonice Martin

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

    • Mikey

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

  23. Natalie

    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…

    • Karen Tyra

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

      • Mikey

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

  24. Nancy H

    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!!

  25. NaPua Oney

    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.

  26. Nancy deGans

    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!!

  27. Lori Dupont

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

    • Mikey

      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.

      • Mikey

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

  28. Lori Dupont

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

    • Mikey

      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.

  29. Sandy

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

    • Mikey

      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

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

    • Deb

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

      • Mikey

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