Halloween Blanket Crochet Along Details

  • This crochet along will run from July 7th until September 1st for a total of 9 weeks.
  • I will release each part/assignment for the week on my blog for free every Saturday 12pm (EST).
  • I will announce on Facebook and through my email list when I release each assignment/pattern.
  • Once the crochet along is over, everything will remain on my blog for free.
  • Each week will be accompanied by a video tutorial along with the written pattern.
  • Share your progress in my facebook group Maria's Yarn Friends or tag me on Instagram @mariasbluecrayon, I love seeing all your work - it's the best part of this crochet along! I look forward to seeing all of your creativity!
  • If you have questions, you may post in the Maria's Yarn Friends facebook or email me
  • Yarn substitution suggested (if you don't want to use Red Heart Super Saver) is I Love This Yarn! from Hobby Lobby. Other worsted weight yarns are thinner compared to the Red Heart. (See next bullet point)
  • If you are using a 'thinner' worsted weight yarn as a substitute, you will want to use a smaller hook size (probably an H/5.00mm). This will result in a small square size so to counter the smaller size, add a row to your granny square pattern. This is easily done by repeating the last row of the granny square.
