The Sizing below is based on the Gauge Size of the Written Pattern itself. This was not based on my own stitches & tension. It is known in crochet that the sizing will be affected if you change the yarn or hook size.

For figuring out your own afghan size:

  • 6 Chains = 1 shell seen in the photograph.
  • 1 Shell = 2″ wide.
  • Chain in sets of 6 as explained in the video tutorial to get the width you want. Then add 2 chains at the end.
  • For the pattern, the repeat pattern of using the 4 colours takes 12 rows total. The repeat pattern is approximately 7″ high.

Math to figure out custom sizing:

  • If you want a certain size say 60″ wide afghan.
  • If each shell is 2″ wide, the total width is divided by 2 as every 2″ is only 1 shell. We need to figure out the number of shells required to figure out the chain length number.
  • The math is 60″ divided by 2″ per shell = 30 shells. Take 30 shells x 6 (6 stitches per shell) =  180 Chains. Then add 2 chains at the very end.
  • Total of 182 Chains.
  • Crochet to the desired length.

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.

    Is there a video of how to do the border !! I have trouble reading crochet patterns .
    Thank you

    1. Mikey says:

      I didn’t film this border specifically for this afghan, but we have this one. https://thecrochetcrowd.com/granny-square-borders-2/ It’s the petal edge border that looks similar. For the sides of the blanket, you just equally space the stitches out.

  2. Carol Patterson says:

    It’s beautiful and I’m saving this one for sure

  3. Each color starts on the same side ,I just drop color 1and pick up color 2 ,then drop color 2 and pick up color 3 , then just pick up color 1 ,then drop that color and pick up color 2 .I end with a border of my main color around the throw in single crochet to cover the first and last stitch. And you do not see all my dropped yarn.

    I crochet prayer shawls and I was looking for something different to crochet. I came across your YouTube video for “juicy fruits”. I loved the way it looks but it looked a little difficult for me. After watching your video, I immediately picked up some yarn and a crochet hook and got to work. Your video was so easy to understand (and see-the way you had the camera situated) you made it so easy for me. Thank you Mikey! I really appreciate you making the pattern so easy to understand.
