SKILL LEVEL: 

Adventurous Beginner: For those crocheters who are ready to learn some new skills or stitch combinations.

I have long admired quilters and their dedication to their craft. The many hours required to choose just the right fabrics, hand cut the various pieces, assemble them precisely, and then work the countless, little stitches to finish it all off truly amazes me. What a testament of love for what they do, as well as for the lucky recipient of their art.

The design of this blanket is loosely based on a well-known quilt pattern. By breaking it down into 12 manageable sections, you will be able to create your own treasure. Use the warm color palette chosen for this Mystery CAL to invoke visions of curling up hearthside in front of a crackling fire with loved ones.

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a video about Clue #12.
  • The blanket begins with a center square motif, and then radiates outward. The final layout is similar to a Log Cabin quilt design with a bit of a twist.
  • Throughout the pattern, the first stitch refers to the same one as the base of the starting chain, unless otherwise explicitly stated otherwise.
  • It is extremely helpful to place a removable stitch marker on the right side of your work, so you can easily determine where to begin subsequent sections. You may also find it helpful to add a marker to denote the first stitch of each round for Section 1. It helps to indicate where the repeats stop, and it helps show the top of turning chains to work into them later.
  • Making a gauge swatch is critical to achieve the desired results. I used to think that I “always worked to gauge.” However, it finally dawned on me that what I was really assuming was that I worked to the same gauge as the person who designed the pattern. Believe me, that is a bad assumption. Please DO NOT assume that you crochet to the same gauge as I do! I have learned that I tend to crochet on the "tight" end of the spectrum, so do not be surprised if you need to go down a hook size (or 2!). Yes, it is an extra step, but it also assures you that what you are crocheting will produce what you expect. And you won’t need to worry about running out of yarn.
  • If you are substituting yarn, it is especially important to verify that it behaves in the same way as the yarn called for in the pattern. If you are using a substitute yarn, be sure that it is mostly natural fibers. You need to be able to block the blanket to get the straightest possible edges. Man-made fibers typically do not block well and will shrink back to the as-knit shape.

Errata- Section 2 chart updated. Please download a new copy of the pattern. *Please note, if you are watching the video, follow the written directions for rows 16 and 17.

Round 90 should be written: 90(RS): ch2, hdc around same dc of Section 9, hdc in top of next dc, hdc around same dc, hdc in top of next hdc, hdc around same hdc, hdc in first dc of Section 7, * hdc in next 129 dc, hdc in top of turning ch, hdc around first dc of next section, (hdc in top of same dc, hdc around next dc) x 9 *, 5 hdc in next dc (corner), rep from * to *, hdc in top of last dc. The start of Section 9 is to the left, which includes 6 ch with hdc. Sl st to the 2nd ch, turn. (311 hdc)

Clue 12 round numbers adjusted.
