To go with the 2018 Study of Texture Afghan, this afghan was created to sister with it as a different set of textures and shapes. It challenged many, including myself. Throughout the summer, we worked on the course together. By Labour Day, we had finished it.

This summer, the concept is originating from a circle to a hexagonal concept. With stitches to learn and watch grow throughout the summer.

Earth Fun Facts

Planet Earth is the third planet from the sun. It’s unique to our solar system to support our lifeforms relying on oxygen and water. It is the 5th largest planet and has a unique tilt of 23.4 degrees creating our seasons. Earth has a wobble that changes the direct light of our sun within a 365 cycle around the sun. It favours the north for 6 months and then the south for 6 months. It gives the cycle of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter to most of us not residing at the equator. The wobble assists in creating our wind with the oceans and land temperatures changing.

Testing Samples

My pattern was tested by Wendy, Diane, Anita, Donna, Michele and triple-tested by me. Also review intensely by Svetlana, Yarnspirations Design Team. Unfortunately, we may have overlooked mistakes but are aiming for 100% accuracy.

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 have finally started the Study of Planet Earth after looking forward to it since it was published.
    I am an experienced crocheter, and tend to work tightly, so having to go up a hook size or even two is not unusual. With a J hook, not an I, I’m getting a swatch size of 11 sc = a little over 3″, and 12 rows = 3″. I started working the project with an L hook, which seems ridiculous, but now I’m wondering if this isn’t going to end up way oversized. So my question is: What should the diameter of the first part (rnds 1-8) be? I’ve got a diameter of 7.5″. If it should be substantially smaller, I don’t mind frogging and starting over with a smaller hook, and ignoring the swatch gauge.

    My yarn is a #4 worsted weight, from Sprightly Yarns, which I’d never seen before, but the yarn is soft, the price was excellent, and the color is exactly what I had in mind.
    Thanks for whatever help you can give me.

    1. Mikey says:

      Morning Arlene. Can I follow up with you in the new year? I have my project packed in the studio attic and I am too heavy to climb up the rickety ladder to get up there. I don’t recall what the dimension should be. I have to convince Daniel to get up into the attic and sort through boxes as they are not labelled. I’m sorry.

      1. Arlene Fell says:

        Sure. Meanwhile, what I’m going to try is this: I enlarged the photo of your completed project, measured the diameter of the center and the whole thing, and then, with simple algebra, came up with a measurement of 6.4″ for the center. (If anyone’s interested in the math, the full width appeared to be 7.5″ and the center 1″, so 7.5:1=48:x, then solve for x.)
        So I’m going to frog and restart with a J hook and see what I get and will look for your response after New Year’s. Meanwhile, if anyone else has an answer, I’ll be checking this page. Thanks for the response, enjoy your holidays, and stay well.

      2. Mikey says:

        It was part of our landing page on Yarnspirations during the stitch along. Here are all of the dimensions after each section. Rnds 1 – 8 is 8″.

        Week 1 8”
        Wk2 13”
        Wk3 22”
        Wk 4 27.5”
        Wk 5 37”

      3. Arlene Fell says:

        Wow. So I wasn’t far off with the L hook! Thanks for the dimensions by round; that’s a huge help. I did Google but didn’t come up with that. I frogged and restarted with a J, but got only three rounds in. Oh, well, frog again and back to the L. I think an M would be a bit uncomfortable to work with.
        Just a comment: I can NOT imagine how it’s possible to get that gauge with an I hook.
        Again, thanks for the help.

      4. Mikey says:

        It’s based on my own tension of how I how and use my hook. Everyone has different tension. Using an M doesn’t sound appealing. Maybe you should just scrap this project and move on. I would be tempted to do that as well.

      5. Arlene Fell says:

        I’m going ahead with the L hook. I’ve been looking forward to this project for too long to just give up because of a small gauge issue!
        Thanks again for all the help. I’ll let you know how it works out.

  2. Sade says:

    I’m sorry, it’s on the 14th round I’m coming up one stitch less, yet everything previous matches.

  3. Sade says:

    Am I the only one with the correct stick counts for rounds 11 and 12, yet for 13 seem to be off? I end up with only one dc space after the last two hdc for the first side of the hexagon before the dc ch1 dc in ch1 space.

    1. Mikey says:

      When using HDC, it’s easy to be mistaking the stitch. I do it all the time and catch myself as the first stitch. Can you fudge it to move along. I believe the counts are correct.

      1. Sade says:

        That’s where my confusion is. I’ve triple checked my counts and reworked the rounds all the way from the start of week 2 twice now. I’m concerned that by dropping the a dc it would be defeating the purpose of the extra dc at the start of round 14.
