Back by popular demand is another mystery challenge hosted by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd. Crocheters loved the Crochet Mystery Adventure which ended up being Love My Giraffe Toy. Crocheters from around the world created over 550 giraffes and were encouraging each other during the mystery. It was a lot of fun to watch crocheters try to guess and crochet something without knowing the final results.
