YOYO-ALONG



This is a motivational crochetalong. The idea is to do some easy 'mindless' crocheting and perhaps ending up with an afghan after a month or two. It's a great yarn destashing project as well!

The idea is to keep yourself working on your yoyos and posting progress photos as you go, and posting updates on how much you've accomplished throughout the month. Ideally, one post per week to let everyone know how it's going and at least one progress picture for the month should be the goal.

There will also be some stitch-markers as a prize for this month.



To stand a chance to win, you must post at least 4 times during the month of June. At the end of the month I'll do a lucky draw.

YOYO PATTERN:

1 - Chain 4 and Slip Stitch To Create A Ring
2 - Chain Up 3, Double Crochet 11 Times. (The first chain of 3 counts as one Double Crochet Automatically giving a final of 12). Slip Stitch at the end to complete the circle.

You can stop here, or add additional rounds, doubling up the stitch count each row.

Methods for joining your yoyos together
1. Hexagonal Braiding Joining

2. Hexagonal Net Joining

June will be a busy month for me, organizing the OPS and working on our RenFest stuff, but I think I might try to go along with this. Maybe I can make some yoyos each night while watching HIMYM (which we recently discovered and can't get enough of). I can do some mindless crochet while watching, right?

Seems like a perfect way to spend a month.....and I could definitely stand some de-stashing!  ( I have some very generous great-aunts!)
