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.

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.
