Spin the Wheels
Scroll down to read how to use the wheels. For returning game players, the wheels are conveniently on the top so you can quickly come back, spin again and get back to your project.
- Wheel 1 – Stitch to Use
- Wheel 2 – Colour to Use
- Wheel 3 – How Many Repeats to Do
OPTIONAL: Our sample shows 2 rows of white single crochet between each colour. You can opt to do that if you wish before spinning for your next colour. Just use the Single Crochet Instructions for this. Always start the white on the right side (good side) of the blanket and do two rows to ensure the stripe looks consistent all the way through.
See below for stitches and more details.

Yarn sponsored by Yarnspirations.
Depending on which size of project you wish to work on, you have a chance to add this yarn and fun stuff to your collection. All winners are randomly selected. We’ve increased the package values in recognizing that the more crochet you do, should be rewarded with more stuff.
Before You Start
- Choose up to 10 Colours. If you want to use less, you are welcome to do so. Assign each colour a number from 1 -10. For those who use less than 10. You can assign the same colour 2 different numbers or just simply spin the wheel again to hopefully land on a number.
- We used Caron Simply Soft due to the array of colours that are available.
- If you need help with colour palettes, we have Diva Dan’s Trendy Colour Combinations to give you colour ideas.
Let’s Get Started
Spin the wheels to begin.
Each one of the 8 stitches has the starting point from beginning After you have started your project, you will always start the next set of instructions on Row 2.
You may just get the same stitch in a row or possibly the same colour… maybe even both. Written instructions, crochet diagram and video tutorials are available for all 8 different stitch choices.
- We have 8 stitches. We have listed what each stitch is to complete.
- We have 10 colour options. You assign the colours on your own. For example, Colour 1 is Blue. If you don’t want to use 10 colours and choose you want to use 6 colours. If you land on 7, 8, 9, or 10. Just simply spin again to get a number that you do have. You can use any yarn or colour. It’s up to you.
- Good Karma – If you land on Good Karma. You must head directly to Facebook and sincerely compliment two crocheter’s projects on The Crochet Crowd. Each wheel has Good Karma and if you land on Good Karma on more than 1 wheel, you need to honour that. So if you land on 2 Good Karmas, you need to compliment 4 crocheter projects. Land on 3, that means you compliment 6 crocheters. Once you have complimented a crocheter, spin the wheel that has Good Karma.
- Facebook Photo – If you land on Facebook Photo, it means you should try to take a picture of your current WIP and post a picture immediately to The Crochet Crowd Wall.
- Spin Again – Obviously the wheel didn’t work out for you, spin the wheel that is telling you to spin again.
- Each one of the instructions has a set repeat pattern. For example, Rows 2 and 3 make up the instruction. The repeat wheel will tell you how many times to do the instruction.

See what your fellow crocheters have already submissions. Albums are in alphabetical order. Someone in each submission gallery will be awarded our prize.
Scarf Entries – Each Scarf Submission is a Chance to Win
You can do you scarf in two different ways:
- You can either do one chevron that is a about 65″ long. With the spinning of the wheels, all 8 different stitches should be present. Adult scarves are generally 70″.
- You can do a wide chevron scarf that is minimum 10 chevrons wide which will be about 64″ wide. The scarf should be a minimum of 10″ high. Due to the randomness of the spinning of the wheels,, not all 8 different stitches will be present. We will accept scarves that have a minimum of 3 different stitches or more that are in our game.
When photographing your scarf, we want to see the entire scarf to count chevrons and do a check of the size.
Baby Blanket Entries – Each Blanket Submission is a Chance to Win
- Baby Blankets should be 6 chevrons wide. This will about 40″ wide. Your baby blanket should be square in appearance. It should be 40″ square.
- Due to randomness of the wheels, at least 6 of the 8 stitches should be present for submission.
- You can also do individual stripes like a scarf and sew them together to make one blanket. There should be 4 stripes which includes the side partials on both sides and the afghan must still be square. I have worked out the math that doing four stripes would be 6″x 4 stripes = 24″ plus each strip has an additional 4″ for the sides. This will give you 40″ which is the same.
- We will be looking for your baby afghan to be square.
When photographing your baby blanket, we want to see the entire blanket to count chevrons and see that it is square.
Afghan Entries – Twin, Full/Double, Queen or King Size
We will accept the sizes as indicated in each stitch for the afghan sizes. The sizes minimum are without the drape. You can add the drape if you wish but is not required to have a chance to win. Sizes below are without the drape.
- Teenagers Blanket Ch 242 – 8 Chevrons + Sides = 52″ Wide by 60″ Long.
- Throw Afghan Ch 298 – 10 Chevrons + Sides = 64″ Wide by 70″ Long.
- Lapghans & Wheel Chairs Ch 186 – 6 Chevrons + Sides = 40″ Wide and Length of Legs.
- Twin Ch 214 – 7 Chevrons + Sides = 39″ wide x 75″ long.
- Full / Double Ch 270 – 9 Chevrons + Sides = 54″ wide x 75″ long.
- Queen Ch 298 – 10 Chevrons + Sides = 64″ wide x 80″ long.
- King Ch 354 – 12 Chevrons + Sides = 76″ Wide x 80″ long.
- You can also do individual stripes like a scarf and sew them together to make one blanket. It should be the size of the afghan dimensions above.

Please be aware that we are accepting Twin – King Size for this category. The choice in the end is random. We know from previous challenges that some people prefer to do larger afghans. Doing larger afghans doesn’t increase your odds of winning.

If you are changing your hook size, we are still looking for the pattern to be the same. Even though your item may be bigger or smaller, we expect the same pattern to be followed. Changing the hook size doesn’t add or take away from the work involved in the stitches.
