Game Day Mystery Make-Along 2022

Get ready for Game Day Mystery Make-Along 2022. Other people know it as Super Bowl Sunday. We don’t care which team you root for … or whether you root for a team at all. We don’t care if you knit or you crochet. Regardless of any of those preferences, we want you to join us for a fun day-long make-along. There will be community-building, crafty surprises, prizes and so much fun. You’ll dedicate much of the day to knit or crochet. Then, about the time that the Super Bowl ends, you’ll have a great new make to enjoy.

Here are the Game Day Mystery Make-Along 2022 details.

History of the Game Day Mystery Make-Along

We started this annual event in 2018. Therefore, 2022 is the fifth annual event. We’re excited to keep growing this each year. More and more people participate each year. We get better at streamlining the whole process, design new creative projects, and keeping it all running smoothly. If you aren’t quite sure what this event is, read our Game Day Mystery Make-Along page. That has all of the details and links you to the patterns from past events.

What Are We Making In The Game Day Mystery Make-Along 2022?

Well, we aren’t going to tell you. That’s what makes it a mystery! It’s really fun to just follow the clues and see if you can figure it out as you go. Some people have trouble letting go of control at first but then eventually find that they really enjoy this part of the process.

Materials for Game Day Mystery Make-Along 2022

We chose a yarn weight that is easily accessible to most. This year, we are featuring the WeCrochet and KnitPicks Yarn for the samples, but you can use any yarn you choose that is worsted weight, as long as you get gauge!

As for color choice, these items can be made with any combination of solid colors. We suggest that you choose colors that look good together, but that are not so close in hue that if two were side-by-side you could not distinguish between them.

Also, because I know you all are going to ask, like many of the Game Day Mystery Make-along events, we do not suggest using any variegated yarns. We think it is best to choose solid or semi solid colors of yarn.

The yarn amounts for all the projects are the same (you should be able to make more than one of the items with just 50g of yarn in each color) but you will notice that this year we are including another craft option for those of you who are triple threat bicrafters…TUNISIAN CROCHET!

Here’s what you’ll need to gather before the event begins:

Game Day Mystery Make-Along 2022 Prizes

We have some amazing giveaways lined up for you on Game Day and our sponsors for this year are pretty amazing, and HOLY COW are they prepared to spoil you! This year we’re trying something a little different and have our “referees” (the Marly’s Minion Modmins) nominating “players” (you all) for six specific categories: 

1. Sportsmanlike Conduct – answering other’s questions and generally being helpful, 

2. The Cheerleader – someone who is going above and beyond to encourage other “players” and boost morale, 

3. The Flash – someone who finishes so quickly they make MULTIPLES,

4. The Underdog – this person faces setbacks but continues to persevere,

5. The Rookie – someone who is new to the craft they chose and shows up and works hard to finish, and

6. MVP – this is the player who essentially embodies it all – helpfulness, efficiency, kindness, and morale boosting!

GRAND PRIZE – all players are eligible and this winner is chosen entirely at random from the finished item threads in the MARLY’S MINIONS FACEBOOK GROUP!!!

Winners will be chosen and announced on February 14th in the Marly’s Minions Facebook group!

    I focused so much to get the crocheted hat done that I didn’t get a chance to get the knit hat pattern saved. Is there a way to now get the knit hat without paying so much for the pattern?
