From Guest Blogger, Mikey from the Crochet Crowd:
I’m at it again with another amazing afghan project. I’ve been digging through the Red Heart patterns to locate a perfect project for the summer long crochet challenge. In reviewing his inbox of ‘wish list requests’ from fans, he realized that people really want to explore stitches so they may learn and grow.
I’ve located an afghan that explores 10 different stitches. These are stitches that you can learn and use on future projects. I will have the patterns and videos ready for you.
Join me in completing a gorgeous afghan starting July 1st and finish it by Labour Day. I will present the entire project on Canada Day, July 1st, 2014. Crocheters will have an entire summer to work through their project. You are challenged to explore the colour wheel to come up with an interesting colour scheme that matches your own personal creativity and decor tastes. You will see the entire project up front to begin the planning.
The afghan has a potential to look thousands of different ways for where the stitches appear and what colours are used.
On September 6th, 2014, Mikey will do a draw for three lucky crocheters. Each crocheter will win a fully loaded Red Heart Yarn Bag with Crochet Crowd Gifts! The draw is completely random.
Whether you are going on vacation or having a stay-cation at home… why not enjoy a Stitch-cation at the same time. If your friends ask you what you are doing this summer, just tell them you are going on Stitch-cation with Mikey.
