And so it begins with the 9am Crochet Clue Game Day Mystery Make-along. This is the first time I’ve ever done an event like this and I hope it is as fun as I think it will be. Anyway, should you have any questions please be sure to post in the Marly’s Minions Facebook Group!
Remember, this is a mystery make-along meaning you actually don’t know what you are making. You just have to have blind faith that it is something cool 🙂

Game Day Make-along Materials:
Yarn: 10 oz of worsted weight
Yarn used in the sample is With Love Stripes, in color Fiji Stripe
Hook: J/10 (6mm)
Notions: bent tip tapestry needle, removable stitch markers, good pair of scissors
12 dc = 4″ (10 cm)
5 rows = 2.5″ (6.35 cm)
Please make a note: I don’t say this very often but gauge isn’t terribly important for this project. HOWEVER, if you happen to get a larger gauge than is listed you might run out of yarn; or if you get a smaller gauge you might end up with a project that is just too small. Therefore, it is always best to get gauge or at least be really, really, really close 🙂
dc: double crochet
tc: treble crochet
