If you need to figure out stitch counts to make these sizes, this is solely dependent on you. Typically, I chain until I hit the width or length of the project I want by measuring it directly to my bed or an established blanket.

If you are working with multiple sets, you have to figure that out by counting the multiples out as you go. For example, say I want a 70″ wide afghan and I have multiples of 9 + 2. I could from 1 – 9 as I chain over and over and over. Once I get to the length I need, I just add 2 at the end. This way, I can ensure my multiple counts will be right without the worry of a calculator.

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.

    I really need some help. I am making two afghans 10 ounces each making an afghan 60 x 72 inches with an I hook. It is a pattern that starts in the corner. I don’t think I have enough yarn? I am estimating 6 10 ounce skeins for this each afghan. Hope it doesn’t take that much?

  8. Thanks a lot Mikey. Thanks for giving away the free PDF download 🙂

  9. Anita McIntosh says:

    Thank you!

  12. Rachael says:

    I always find that my chain stretches out as the blanket builds, as a beginner I find it easier to work by chain length rather than inches because of the stretch. would you be able to help me figure out what a chain should be for a blanket for a double/full with a bit of hang using a 11 hook with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. I make my blanket fairly loose. thank you so much

  13. Mandie Hogan says:

    What size is the one that you have shown? you have also suggested how many balls to buy, for what size is that? i don’t want to start and run out of wool because the blanket is too big?

  14. Karen Maddox says:

    How much yarn for the sizes?

    1. I cannot answer that as the hook sizes and yarn change everything.

  15. Audra says:

    You were SPOT ON with this one, Mikey! Thank you so much for this post!

I shall make it a point to have this printed off to put in my go bag with my crochet work! I may even have it laminated so I can always have it close at hand and it will last me a good long time! THANK YOU!!!
