Announcing the Bernat Mystery Afghan Crochet-Along!

You're officially invited to join the fans, employees and bloggers as we crochet our way, clue by clue, to a fantastic new afghan out of Bernat Softee Chunky.

How it works
The Bernat Crochet-Along is a sampler afghan crocheted in five colors of Bernat Softee Chunky. What the final afghan will look like is a mystery - you'll have to crochet each clue as it comes out and gradually discover the final result.

Anyone who loves crochet or wants to learn is welcome. The first clues are at an Easy level, and gradually get harder. Don't worry - we've got tutorials along the way to keep you learning. If you're an experienced crocheter, you'll love watching the clues unfold.

The first clue will be released September 22nd here on the Bernat Blog. Each Wednesday we'll release another clue on the blog, and crocheters across the country will share experiences as we go.

For more details check out the official FAQ page with answers to all of your questions!
