SmoothFox Mystery Crochet-A-Long Baby Blankie

Are you up to the challenge of creating a

That's right.  We will be crocheting a one-piece, flat (no squares to piece together) MYSTERY Baby Blankie as a Crochet-A-Long also known as a CAL.  Everyone can go at their own pace, use their own yarn color choices.  However, once all of the clues are out, it will only be available for a short period as a free pattern.  So get'em while they are available.

I will post clues to the pattern every few days or I'll wait for about 10 people to post comments or email me that they are ready for the next clues and I'll  be crocheting the blankie along with you.  

I'm making my blankie for a baby boy so I am using beautiful lime green, turquoise, and white.  I will list the yarn I am using but feel free to select your own colors. I have made the blanket over half way through one time and then decided I wanted different colors so I'm starting over.  I'm quite sure that colors A and B will have plenty in the skeins to complete the blanket.  Just to be on the safe side though, color C should be 2 skeins.  

If anyone finds an error in any clues, please email me (see below) and I will come back to the blog and make the corrections in a different color of ink. 

The first clue will be in the next blog post.  I'll include a short YouTube video for newer crocheter's who might not know how to change yarn colors while crocheting.

If you decide to join in the Crochet-A-Long for the Mystery Baby Blankie please follow this link and click on the crochet hook to show your interest in this project.  You must be signed into Ravelry to add this as a project.


Happy Crocheting!

OK, I think I might be in on this one! A new baby will be in our family (I'm not pregnant!) early next year so I need to make a blanket - I want it to be white though as I don't know the sex. Would that be suitable?
