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.

    Hello, thank you for this pattern; I am trying to download the pattern, but the graph is not displaying with the pattern instructions; am I looking in the wrong place to download the pattern; any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Keep up the great work!!

    1. You will probably have to save the graph separately. Just right click on the graph to download and save it.

    Hello!! I’d love to make this afghan, And I am intrigued with the idea of doing it as a rug. Would you still use the acrylic yarn or a cotton yarn?

    Ohhh, you are spot on. I looked over at the bare spot in my livingroom in front of the woodstove and I’m thinkin’ how nice it’d be there. Yes, I’d protect it from sparks, etc. I would need to make it as large as the other woman who made it 115 inches!!! It dawned on me that’s 5 inches short of TEN FEET!!! Well, if I start now, it will keep me warm during the winter as I make it bigger and BIGger and BIGGER!!!

    I went directly to the Redheart website and half of these colors are not available. Disappointed.

    1. Times change and so does the yarn. Colours are updated frequently. I know I did this afghan a few years back. Life gets boring if everything remains the same.

    lovely pattern and design, thank you.

    Hello Mikey, I love this pattern but want to use it in another way. What I mean is I want to be able to attach it to the bottom of a jacket to make a skirt for the jacket. I have seen coats with a flared skirt on them and I would like to make one for myself. Is there a way to make this afghan open in one of the valleys between the points or at the center of one of the points themselves? I guess what I really want to know is if this can be worked in rows instead of rounds and still have the star points? please let me know if this is possible or if there is a pattern available that is done in rows so I can make my jacket with a skirt, thank you.
