Crochet Senior Project Ideas

The decision to place a loved one in a senior’s facility or for seniors who decide to stay in their home as long as possible can be difficult for both the senior and the other family members.

Sometimes, there’s a need for comfort from home to be with them, while you or others cannot be with them full time. Just to share, some facilities may restrict certain items for their own reasons. However, when there’s an opportunity to give, it’s nice to be able to provide the warmth that your gift can make.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Reading through patriot comfort. Can you explain row 2 repeat. Skip next st, dc in next, dc in next skipped stitch. There are no skipped stitches in previous row, correct? Did I miss something?

    Thanks for your time.

    Is there any type of crochet pattern for dementia patients? I once saw one made out of material but I am not good with sewing. Other then that I am interested in trying to crochet items for senior donations. I just work slowly.

    To who this may concern I crochet for people to. I didn’t know about a site for seniors. I would like to know more. Thanks

    I was wondering where would I send any projects I can make for the seniors?

    Another item not mentioned for the Crochet Senior Project are shawls. I have worked many years with the elderly and know that they are often chilly. Many are sensitive to the breezes from fans and air conditioners and will complain they are cold. A sweater might be too hot if the temperature is warm, but a shawl is just enough covering to take the chill off. Shawls and ponchos are also great for those who do not have enough range of motion to be able to put on a sweater

    Jeannie, what about twiddle muffs/mats? I work reception at a senior facility. All levels..memory, skilled care, rehab..I’ve made a mat, asked the resident’s sister if it would be appropriate..she loved it..also a muff another family member took down to the unit.
    Bought the instruction book(s) from Annie’s bought the sewn ones too. Great stash busting projects.
