Crochet Pattern Testing Exercise

The Crochet Crowd testing team goes through a lot when testing one of our patterns and does a significant amount of revisions. It could be a number of factors that are wrong with a pattern.

The goal is to find as many pattern issues as possible and let the team work together to have the best possible outcome. Like any humans though, we all can overlook the same errors.

When locating errors, it usually triggers us to look further as the same errors can be repeated.

Answer Sheet

Finding errors can make you a stronger pattern reader. It also clues you in to the fix and being able to fudge anything where you don’t have access to the designer.

Answer Sheet – Errors are highlighted and notes added.

Leave us a comment on the blog on how many errors you saw. Be secretive though, don’t share in the comments where the errors are. Let others have a chance to find them too.

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.

    Excellent exercise. I did find 15 mistakes. Hope I’m right

  2. EL says:

    Wow, you’re a pickier proofreader than I am!
    This was a great exercise.

  3. Monica says:

    I found 10 or 11, one of which wasn’t called out in the corrections. I missed a few of the “technically” issues.

  4. Shirley Payne says:

    Is this the “blog”? Where are my grandchildren when I need them? Oh yeah, they live with their parents🤦🏻‍♀️😂❤️❤️
    I missed 4, all read as I was “supposed” to read, not as written, but that’s my reading “disability”. But there is one more!
    BUT I have to tell you my first thought was I don’t need a ball of yarn to do these 5 rows😂😂
    I love this site. I have shared with many! And they have joined! I have to tell myself I do not have to make everything, at least not all this week!😂 thank you!

    1. Marina King says:

      my list grows daily!! crochet is one hobby, collecting yarn is another hobby, and collecting patterns is a third. For some people *cough*me*cought* collecting hooks is another.

  5. Eldonna says:

    This taught me a lot. Mostly, that I could never be a proofreader!

  6. Marjorie Koenig says:

    I got 9/15, but I think there are three additional errors. Contact me by e-mail and I will tell you what I think they are. Thanks.

  7. Meggan Lloyd says:

    Holy cow I caught 1 error.

  8. Liesbeth Jacobs says:

    Lol, I found all the crochet important misstakes, like hooksize and stitch numbers. Aparantly I just sort of gloss over punctuation and spelling misstakes. Now, I could say this is because English is not my first language, but I am afraid I do te same in Dutch. Unless I am specifically looking for spelling mistakes that is.
    Anyway, I liked the excersize.

    1. Marina King says:

      everyone tends to gloss over certain things, there aren’t many patterns I’ve read the whole thing, I see what stitches and how many I should be doing, there is a few times I’ve had to go back because I’ve missed something simple haha
