Crochet Double Strand Afghan

Hey, it’s me… Yeppers, Laura Jean. I was charmed by Jeanne’s story and her Sweet Memories Blanket, in which she uses double strands to create a beautiful chevron blanket.  Using random colours, and double stranding throughout you can really change the look by how you choose colours.

Choosing colours is fairly random – first of all, I chose to use a  paired with a solid or variegated colour in short, long and in-between lengths. There isn’t really an exact science, and it is meant to use up scraps in a fun way.  To start I create some really lax guidelines. 1.  Throw caution to the wind and have fun!  2. Pick a pattern – this can easily be done in straight rows of double crochet.

I also choose to wind my yarn into cakes with a yarn winder, so I wasn’t always starting and stopping. I did use the Russian join to join my yarn together.

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.
