The Bernat Mystery Afghan Crochet-Along is a hit across the web, but it has also grabbed the attention of many members of the Bernat Design Studio. We’ll check in weekly and let you know our progress as we Crochet-Along.

This was another easy one for me, the Granny Square is the only thing I know how to crochet with my limited crochet skills. The only tricky part is the middle, but if you remember to crochet into middle of the circle and not into your stitches you’re good to go. Also I found that if your first round doesn’t look like a square, it best just to restart. I had a few organic shapes in my first attempts.

Working a granny square is fast and easy. I hope even the newbies found this one easy. Again, I was able to get through my two squares rather quickly. But now I’m starting to worry: what comes next? Will I have to work 20 copies of a clue? I guess that’s the “mystery” part, LOL.

As a new crocheter, heading to the granny square meant familiar territory. The only big crochet project I have completed was a BIG granny square afghan. So granny squares – I know. Charts, however? I’m lost. I took this opportunity to force myself to work my granny squares off of the chart. Now that I’m finished, I think i sort of understand this chart business! I love that it is a visual representation of the stitches, and is so much easier to follow (assuming I’m following it correctly). Hooray for Granny Squares! and Hooray for Charts! Here’s hoping the rest of the squares are this easy.
