Mystery Afghan 2015 – Clue 1

During the past week I worked on the first clue for the Mystery Afghan 2015. (If you want to join in, you can get the first clue here). The clue is to make 20 basic granny squares of 4 rows in the main contrast colour (contrast A).

I was pleased to see that the clue contained a drawing for me to follow (the written instructions are on the first page) as I find it easier to read and understand the drawings as opposed to the written instructions. My main contrast colour is white and so I began my squares with this basic colour.

If you wish to participate in the Crochet Along but are unsure of how to create a granny square, Michael Sellick’s video is helpful:


This week I completed clue #1 and am now ready to begin on the second clue. I am a little behind schedule but that is to be expected as I am doing my crocheting in between my work for the course I am following.

  1. oh this is looking like fun – and I look forward to seeing the final project – in the meantime, I wanted to let you know that right after I read your other post about this crochet exchange – well shortly afterwards – we saw this at IKEA – pre made crochet circles- and I thought what good idea for those that do not crochet or knit… and just wanted to show ya

    1. Thank you Ruth. What I like about this crochet along is that Mikey has posted videos on how to do the stitches – in order to do clue 2, I will have to crochet along with his video 🙂


  2. We used to join my mother as kids in crocheting bedspreads for my family when we were kids. The squares were similar to the squares in your pictures. I would not remember how to crochet now – maybe lack of interest 🙂 I have been thinking that I should doing useful crafts like I used to as a child.


    1. These squares are the basic granny squares and it is the one I first learned as a child as well. I encourage you to pick up the hook again. You will find that crocheting is a great way to relax and be creative too.


  3. That looks like fun Colline but I think I’ll give it a miss – last time I tried doing knitting I made a scarf that got gradually thinner! Now when you want something made of wires and solder I’m your man 😉
