Mini Mystery CAL ~ Crystalized Designs

Spread the love

Hello, crochet friends!! I’m so excited to take part in my THIRD A Crocheted Simplicitys’ MMCAL!! For those of you who may not know, it’s a mini-mystery crochet-a-long! I’ve loved seeing her previous MMCALs and the outcome of the projects without knowing what exactly is being made. You can find my first MMCAL project here and my second MMCAL project here. I’m also very excited to show you mine and see all of your projects!

    Cute pattern! I have a question. Row 14, is there a “turn” after ch 1? If so, I end up back on the first “hump”.

    • No! There’s not meant to be a turn on Round 14. It’s been changed, so sorry!!

      • Dimitra Tzamtzis

        That’s what I thought! Thank you for confirming!!
