Formerly known as Mystery Crochet Along

I love blankets and I have grown to love the idea of putting pictures in blankets as you go instead of having to do twice the work of surface cross stitching afterward!

This MCAL is very girly, so keep that in your mind as you decide what types of colors to use!

* Yarn in 2 color choices, you’ll need about an even amount of each color. I used 1 skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love in Off White and 1 Skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love in a Blue color.

  • Any hook that fits with your yarn choice!

The materials you choose will have a direct bearing on what the size of your blanket will be, so if you use a smaller yarn, expect it to turn out smaller, if you use a larger yarn, expect it to come out larger. Same goes for hook size. I find worsted weight with an I/9 hook works well.

The directions to the pattern will be written as row counts, there no intricate pattern writing on how to manage color changes, so I recommend that you already know how to do it or plan to learn as you go from video tutorials.

This pattern can be worked in tunisian, single crochet, or HDC. I don’t recommend doing DC as it makes the picture look to stretched out and space-y, if that makes sense!

Recommended for people who have done tunisian or graphghan projects before. Not recommended for beginners.
