It’s a Mystery CAL, but here are a Few Hints…
The blanket is worked in C2C corner to corner method. Although, I will also release both versions (C2C & Row by Row) in each of their own posts for those of you that want to crochet a row by row version.
Hint #1 Working it in row by row using single crochet will create an amazing pillow or wall hanging!
Hint #2 This is a perfect crochet blanket for an adult OR a child.
Hint #3 It’s not too big, and not too small.

- Suggested Yarn: Impeccable Solid by Loops & Threads in the following colors.
- Hook Size: 5.5 mm Crochet Hook
- Darning Needle
- Bobbins (these are the ones pictured in my project, I LOVE them!)
Approximate size for C2C:
C2C blanket size using 5.5. mm hook, suggested yarn, and double crochet C2C (5/2 method) will measure approximately 64″ wide by 64″
If you want to test this using the C2C Blanket Size Calculator, it will give you a better idea of how big YOUR blanket will be.
Adjusting Your Size:
If you want a smaller blanket, try using half double crochets instead of double crochets.
Projected yardage for C2C using 5.5 mm hook:
These numbers and yardage are based off my own crochet tension, hook size, and stitch. I used a double crochet 5/3 method and a 5.5 mm crochet hook. Calculate your own C2C yardage here.
- Pumpkin – 3 skeins
- Gold – 3 skeins
- Aran Tweed – 4 skeins (these have less yardage)
- Walnut – 1 Skein
You can use scrap yarn for these if you’d like…
- Soft Rose – 1 skein
- Fern – 1 Skein
If you want to know the exact number of skeins you will need – based off your own hook size, tension & stitch, please use my C2C yardage calculator.
Colors & how many Squares per Color:

Row by Row Supplies List – Mystery Fall Crochet Blanket CAL
I am also releasing the pattern for the Row by Row version (which will take significantly less time that working it in C2C), so I will release those at a slower rate (so the secret isn’t revealed too fast!)
If you choose to create this project using single or double crochet your finished project size will be very different than using C2C.
Approximate sizes for Row by Row
Single Crochet: 21″ wide x 25″ tall – using 5.5. mm hook and suggested yarn.
Double Crochet: 46″ wide by 46″ tall – using 5.5. mm hook and suggested yarn
Single Crochet Row by Row
The hook & yarn are same as for C2C, but the yardage will change depending on if you are using a single crochet or double crochet stitch.
I did a sample swatch using a 5.5 mm hook, with medium tension and here is what I got:
- 13 sc x 12 rows.
- The yarn length of my single crochet measured around 2.5″.
- I entered these numbers into my yardage calculator and I only needed around 1 skein per color! That’s fabulous.
Single Crochet Skeins & Stitches
|Color||# of Squares/Stitches||Skein||Yardage|
Double Crochet Row by Row
I also created a sample swatch using double crochet stitches and this is what I got:
- 13 sts & 8 rows per 4″ x 4″ swatch.
- The yarn length of my double crochets measured around 3″, so again, I got about 1 skein!

Pattern Release Schedules:
C2C Mystery Blanket CAL Pattern Release Schedule
The CAL runs from Friday, September 23 to Sunday, October 9th.
Here is a breakdown of the C2C rows that will be released each day. I’ve done some calculations with the help of my boyfriend (who figured out the algorithm for me – thanks Tyler)!
I calculated that it takes me approximately 11 seconds to create 1 square using double crochet C2C.
So using that time, I determined how many rows to release each day to give you about an hour or so worth of work. I am a SLOW crocheter.
If you are faster, then this should be a breeze for you.
I will send out an e-mail and social post in the groups to let you know when that the rows are released and up on the blog.
