I will be doing a year long Mystery Calendar Afghan Crochet Along.
Each month a different pattern will be posted for a 12 inch square that represents the current month. After the 12th square is completed I will post the pattern for joining and border instructions so you can complete your Calender 'Ghan. All patterns will be new and original designs created specifically for this CAL by me (April.) The patterns will be posted daily, one row at a time, beginning on the first Wednesday of each month and will last approximately one week.
Each month's example square will be worked in a solid color, but you are free to experiment with different color combinations in any way you wish. So when choosing yarn be sure to choose colors and fiber content that work well together. You'll want your Calendar 'Ghan to be both functional and pleasing to the eye. The general idea is that at the end of the year you will have a completed sampler afghan to use for yourself or to give as a gift.
MATERIALS: The materials are the same each month. You will need a US size "I" hook, and approx 3 - 4 ounces Worsted Weight yarn.
FINISHED SIZE: The finished size of each square is 12 inches. The finished size of the afghan will be approximately 40 X 52 inches.
Below is the list of pattern names for each month. The link will show up for each pattern on the first Wednesday of the coordinating month. The link will remain the same for the duration of that month's CAL. The new rows will be added each day until the entire pattern is posted for that month.
