JOANN Stitch Along Spring 2020

This crochet blanket is called the Woven Pattern Mosaic Crochet Blanket designed by Erin Black for Yarnspirations.

It is a crochet stitch sampler and one of Erin’s strengths is overlays and building patterns by having colours jump in front or behind stitches to form the shapes.

The blanket is 50″ wide x 61″ long.

More About the Stitch Along Blanket

The blanket has been made in 4 different colourways and is designed to challenge you. It is an intermediate level project with tutorials to help you along the path. Extra attention by the designer has been added to the pattern for visuals and further understanding. This is truly an opportunity for easy level crocheters to advance up a notch in skills.

For myself, I used Version 4 as I have cats and the gray and purple matched my decor but also hides the hair of the cats well. The blanket takes the following yarn quantities to make it work:

  1. 3 Balls – Caron One Pound Main Colour, 2436 yards
  2. 2 Balls – Caron One Pound Contrast A (Secondary Colour), 1624 yards
  3. 1 Ball – Caron Jumbo Contrast B (Peek A Boo Colour), 595 yards

You can click the picture below to save it or even print it to take it shopping with you. Some of the colours are exclusive to JOANN, so you will only find them through their website or in select JOANN Retail Stores.

I have provided the combined yardage for each colour above for your convenience.

Video Introduction

Videos are closed captioned by our CC Team, Diane and Nancy.

There were many requests that came in for the Stitch Along to have challenging concepts and Yarnspirations delivered such a beast. I truly believe this is one of those projects where you may have the opportunity to self-celebrate your own skillset building in real-time. I think we will see people expressing happiness when the afghan starts coming together.

How the Tutorials will Work

Each week, starting Monday, March 23, 2020, there will be a new section of the blanket.

The blanket starts at the bottom and goes up. Week 1 will cover the first three sections. Week 2 is the Chevron Chain in the middle. Week 3 is the last 3 sections and finally, week 4 is the edging and fringe.

Example of Erin’s Designs

Erin designed the Crochet Buffalo Plaid Blanket back for the Canada 150th Birthday. The concept for this particular crochet blanket is simple, yet looks complicated.

More About the Stitch Along Blanket

  • It’s not a motif-based project. It’s a one-piece afghan.
  • The afghan is a rectangle.
  • We have figured out the stitch multiple in the event crocheters want to change the size. However, the yarn difference is up to the crocheter to figure out.
  • As always, the pattern includes written instructions, diagrams and my video tutorials to follow it up.
  • The afghan is gift-worthy.
  • Once you see the pattern unfolding, the project will reveal its secrets.

There will not be any giveaways associated with this stitch along. You will have free choice on how you do your afghan in being able to add more stitches, subtract stitches, it would be too hard to regulate a minimum standard for prizing. It’s a great afghan as it is, I have learned a lot and ultimately that is the prize.

Crochet Stitches to Learn

In the crochet mosaic concept, you will be able to learn these stitches and use them in more projects in the future.

  2. Zig Zag Mosaic

  5. Standing Tiles Mosaic

  1. Hello Mikey!

    I am loving this blanket and really love that you are challenging me to learn new skills. I am sooooo very thankful!!! I did not care for one of the contrasting colors that I chose (not matching up) and had to order online. I started my blanket last Thursday (April 16), evening and have started on Week 2. To prepare myself mentally, I printed and laminated the patterns and watched your weekly videos so I could see the instructions and see if I could handle the new skills and found it to be quite easy to follow! I love the graphs too!!

    Now I want to make a couple of these blankets to give as gifts. Thank you for teaching me how to make this beautiful blanket and your website that allows others to share their progress, there is so many very talented and creative people and it is so nice to see all kinds of color combinations. You are truly a wonderful teacher. I tried to learn to crochet when I was young and family member refused to teach me because I was left-handed, she taught my sister but I really wanted to learn. So when I was 19 years old, a friend of mine was showing all the beautiful things she had made, so I told her she was going to teach me. I tried to follow left-handed but too difficult, I decided to learn right-handed, it took a while to get the hang of it but I love it. Thank you for being thoughtful to all the left-handed crocheters that want to learn, you are the best to include all! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I am a lefty also! I find it easiest to learn when sitting across from a right handed crocheter. Luckily, my grandmother taught me when I was very little! ๐Ÿ˜

  2. Coming late to the party but working my way through week one! The videos are fantastic. Iโ€™m normally donโ€™t like following videos but these are so well done. Thank you!

    • Oh JOANN, if you look just below where the magnifying glass is, you will see an arrow pointing to the right… click it and it will change the week number for you. It feels like you should click the magnifying glass but you don’t. Trust me, it’s not user friendly but it’s all we have to work with.

    • It is where you downloaded the pattern for Week 1. There is all the other weeks, you just click on the Week 2, 3 or 4 at the top. I didn’t see it at first.

    • I am almost done with week 2. I ordered the Caron yarn from Joann online. I looked at their color choices and chose the colors that I liked. Mine is off white, a dark blue/teal, and a variegated that I already had. It is beautiful, however it is heavy. I am planning on doing another one with a softer, somewhat lighter yarn. I would like some direction on how to make adjustments to accommodate this.

      • depending on if you are a tight crocheter or a loose one, you could adjust your hook size, although it may not be necessary. Keep in mind as I have painfully learned, if you do go with a smaller hook it will work up in a smaller size

  3. Thinking that I now have time to make your SAL. Wondering if the pattern and The videos will stay online for me to print them later

  4. how in the world do I sign up to receive emails from you at another email address?? I am currently receiving them at my gmail email address, but would like to sign up to receive them at a different email address, how/where do I go to do that???? TY

    • The emails that you are getting are likely the email you used to signup with, for example, if you signed up to Joanne anything related to there is being sent to the address you signed up there to. Anything Facebook-related is being sent to the address you have set up for Facebook. Yarnspirations same idea. I hope that helps

  5. Finished week one and loving the results! Enjoy learning new crochet skills. Mikey is the best!
    Thank you for this stitch along. I am doing the version in dark gray, off white and Dalmatian.

  6. I just happened onto this site today – your actual start-up day- but would love to join your group. Is it too late to order the yard and hook needed that includes shipping time? Of course with the virus epidemic I cannot go to the local store. Please answer ASAP as I would love to catch up if all this is possible. I think this is an awesome idea. I am a 75 year old widows-home alone. Thank you for your time.

  7. When I click the link to download the full pattern, I am directed to the page for Clue 1 which is only the part of the pattern for week 1. I’ve tried both links several times and both do the same. I’ve tried different browsers with the same results. Please help! I would like the full pattern.

  8. Yayyy…got my yarn! 50% off at my local Joanne’s. Can’t wait to get started on this beautiful blanket.

  9. I’m in Toronto and am having a heck of a time trying to get my yarn for this project. “Canal” colour does not exist, so I thought I would try my own combination. Found a beautiful variegated Caron Jumbo Calming yarn called Lily Pad, which I can’t find anywhere to ship to Canada. Too bad because I really like it with a faded denim and yellow. Such frustration before this even starts! Any suggestions? Would Red Heart be any better?

    • I’m in Canada as well, I asked a few people what colour they thought Canal was, most had no real clue. Red Heart would work for this they are fairly close in weight, as would the Bernat Premium, I don’t know that it would have that colour, mostly because I’m still not sure what it is.

      • If you click on the blue pattern button, it takes you to the Joann page, you will see when you scroll down a tiny bit where it says “Download Pattern” under where it says week 1, you click on each week do download that wee’s pattern.

  10. Can’t wait! I’m going o be a couple of weeks last being started though I forgot this was starting the 23rd and diet Dave enough “fun” money out away to buy the yarn. Now I have to wait until I get my disability check April 3. Bummer, guess I’ll just have to work extra hard to catch up.

  11. Haha, Mikey, please ignore my earlier comment. I just realized why the videos are dead links. Because it’s a CAL, silly me!

  12. Hi Mikey, this looks like lots of fun! But the videos are dead links, they seem to be private videos ๐Ÿ™

  13. What colors are the yarn that was used in the blanket for the photo? Is it one of the versions listed on the sheet?

    • I’m not sure what photo you are seeing Mikey said he used Purple and Grey (Version 4) but I’m seeing different colours when I look I’m seeing White and Turquoise

      • Thanks. I think I was too late in buying my yarn I canโ€™t find any contrast A or B of version 1 anywhere

      • the colours listed are just a suggestion, you have the creative freedom to pick any colours you like, you also don’t have to stick to Caron One Pound. Bernat Premium is a really nice yarn, Red Heart has some pretty colours as well. All kinds of fun options out there.

      • I happen to really like the colors of the photo and would like to be able to purchase them. Iโ€™m bad at picking colors so I appreciate when itโ€™s figured out for me.

  14. I think I shall do option 4, too ๐Ÿ™‚
    The shades of grey does not “WOW” me, and I can’t seem to find “Canal” or “Coral Rose” on Yarnspirations’ or JoAnn’s websites. (“Coral” is on JoAnn’s page, but not “Coral Rose”)
