Medium Mystery Crochet-A-Long

I am moving right along I have followed my next set of directions. Now that I have attached my squares they don't look so square any longer.. I am nervous about how this is going to turn out. I am stumped on the next part of the project called, the middle. I must ask my fellow mystery crocheters what I am to do.

Mystery Crochet-A-Long Small Project

I'm not even sure this looks the way it is supposed to at this point. It is a complete mystery if I am doing this project correctly. I guess that is why it is called a Mystery Crochet A Long. ;) This is the small project I have delayed in posting it because I am just not so sure it is looking right.

Flowers And More Flowers

I made it this far there's no stopping me now! I have done my first square over, with the right hook size. This project was labeled the Medium Mystery Crochet A Long! Yikes! I am not use to projects with so much to them! I am excited to see how my work turns out in the end! But for now this is as far as I have come along.  

 I am making progress!

Mystery Crochet-A-Long Take 2

Now that I have my new yarn and the new revised pattern. Here is what I made so far. Oh how exciting that it actually resembles a square!  Then to my surprise After re-reading the directions I am using wrong hook size  it isn't suppose to be the G hook it is an H or I. Plus, now I am reading I need to make 14 of these suckers!! Oh my goodness back to the beginning and 14 to go!

Mystery Crochet-A-Long Take 1

Here is the first take on what seems to be a crochet square, well it is supposed to be square. I made it this far before deciding to purchase the yarn that was suggested for the pattern. I am not good with making things turn out square or rectangle for that matter...lol!  I thought I was doing so great until I finished off the last corner and it just didn't work out right... I stretched it around and played with it till it looked good for the picture.

Luck would be in my stars, because the pattern was altered, my new yarn arrived and I will have to start anew.

Crochet Heart Bookmark

This is a crochet heart bookmark. I have made one of these before with a different type of yarn and I think the last one I made turned out much better than this one using the Red Heart Super Saver. I made this one pretty quickly. I think any little girl would love to use my heart bookmark in their bedtime storybooks.
