You can join us each month as a new mystery square is revealed. Each mystery square can be crocheted or knit in 9 colors to form a unique patchwork blanket. You’ll learn new stitches and techniques, different joins, a simple border treatment to tie it all together, and even learn how to care for a large heirloom project like this. We’ll have photo and video tutorials for the more complicated techniques as well as tips and tricks for making your blanket shine! When finished, the squares can be assembled into a 42” X 58” or 50” X 50” blanket.
Be sure to follow along here on the WEBS blog for video tutorials and join the discussion in our Ravelry Group All Things WEBS to see the progress of your fellow crocheters and knitters!
