Phoenix Wrap Crochet-a-Long by Underground Crafter - end-of-CAL giveaway prizes collageI did get a few questions this week from crocheters who have never participated in a mystery crochet-a-long before, so I wanted to clear up a few things. The picture below is only showing the Center Panel (Part 1). I was soooo tempted to just keep it as a scarf, because it’s so cozy and it’s a great size! But, I did promise a shawl so I kept crocheting. The rest of the shawl is still a secret. I will share pictures of each part of the pattern as it is released.

    The pattern indicates 2 skeins of each color. Is this for the whole project or just the center panel? (I want to make sure I buy enough to conplete the whole project with the same Lot#)
