The Crochet Checkerboard Afghan was presented in 10 parts as there are 10 different squares that work together. It’s hard to tell in the project. For the fun of it, we changed the colours to be more reflective of what we wanted to achieve.

We presented this as a 2-month summer challenge which we called Stitch-cation. I remember coming up with that name in spring over supper with our friend Colleen.

We presented this as a workbook format. The afghan on the front cover is the same but injected with Red Heart Super Saver colours.

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.

    Hi Mike, Thankyou for this fantastic tutorial and pattern. I’m ready to make this rug as my next project, but I would really love to see a tutorial on how to crochet the borders, as the pattern is a little difficult for me to follow. Is it possible for you to please show us how you did the borders via another youtube video?
    I posted this question last night, but I do not see it displayed, so maybe I didn’t post it right.

    Thankyou so much!!!

      I’m sorry, the border hasn’t been filmed. I have to read each comment before it goes live. I’m about a month behind in responding. I’m sorry for the delay.

    Is there any video tutorial of how to crochet the borders for this stunning throw? I have bought all the woll and am getting ready to make to squares. but, just following the written patter for the borders is proving to be a little confusing for me/ Is it possible for you to please post a video for this? Thankyou so much for this absolutely gorgeous pattern and you fantastic video tutorials

      I haven’t filmed the border for this blanket. I don’t think there is one available. I’m sorry.
