Have you ever participated in a knit or crochet along before? We have hosted a few crochet-alongs in the past (this one in June of 2013 and most recently, Michael Sellick’s Mystery Crochet Along in May of 2014). Whether or not you participated in either of our past Crochet Alongs, now is the time to join the fun with our friends at Caron! Plus, scroll down to find out how you can enter to win 6 skeins of Caron United yarn just by commenting on this blog post!
Caron is gearing up for a super fun Mystery Adventure Scarf Crochet and Knit Along. The “Adventure” in the title refers to the story behind the scarf. For this project, you’ll join Lucy the Sock Monkey on a scarf-making adventure that will take you across the country.
For those that are new to Knit-Alongs and Crochet-Alongs, they are simply a time for knitters and crocheters to come together and create a project together. You don’t need to be experienced or have special skills in order to participate; anyone who knits or crochets can join the fun. Knit and Crochet Alongs are a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends, and wind up with an amazing new knit or crochet project at the end.
The first clue for Caron’s Knit and Crochet-Along will be emailed to participants on Tuesday, September 9th; subsequent clues will be emailed each Tuesday. If you need any help along the way, Caron’s Video Library is a great resource. You can also get help in the Yarnspirations Forum, or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be happy to help!
You’re welcome to use any yarn you want for this project, but Caron United yarn is recommended. By using Caron United yarn for your scarf, you will be helping to provide college scholarships to children of military personnel who have lose their lives in the line of duty. Caron United Yarn is a versatile, worsted-weight yarn that is great for garments and accessories (such as scarves!)
