The Crochet Crowd Study of Geometry

The Crochet Crowd Study of Geometry

The Crochet Study of Geometry is the next study blanket in my (Mikey’s) designs. Scheduled for Summer 2021.

This blanket design is considered an easy level and is 60″ x 60″.

Design Considerations

Keeping in line with the concepts that my blanket designs are texture-rich. This design was the 3rd attempt of 3 designs that were written to hit the goals for the summer stitch along.

  1. Blanket number one required too many colours that ended up with a lot of yarn leftover.
  2. Blanket two was considered too simplistic and truthfully only took me two days to design.
  3. Blanket three, this one, took me several weeks to design with an obsessive about of frogging.

Each one of the three designs has been written but not released and will be saved for a rainy day, sort of speak. One will most likely end up in a Crochet Crowd Book in the future.

The Push

Daniel pushed me further for this design that I really wanted to go. However, I would regret it if I submitted to you a design where my whole heart wasn’t put into it. The final blanket had 3 attempts to get the blanket to the standard I needed. I was mathematics big time and a many trials and errors. I thought this design was going to be my nemesis in the end.

The first finished prototype was done in just 3 colours but the texture and stitches needed a push. I wasn’t firm on the yarn choice on the first run-through. So the second prototype push was the final colours and final run-through. Teamed up with our testers to get it to be readable.

During the final run-through, one of the colours was really bugging me half to death! I sat on the blanket for a week trying to convince myself that I was okay with where one of the colours ended up. I couldn’t bring myself to push it out as is and frogged back out a section and redid it with a new colour sequence.

Colouring

The blanket would look amazing as a one-colour piece or splash it with colouring. It’s a multi-textured blanket.

Summer Journey

The blanket will have us start at the coffee shop outside of the park. Where we will meet up and begin our walk-through during the stitch along. Passing through botanical gardens, a pond with the band playing on the pontoon to doing some paddle boats to get to the rides inside the park. Eventually having some refreshments and make our way back home.

The entire stitch meandered through pathways to follow it through to the end. It will make sense once you see it.

Hint

Pathways and Gardens are the hints for this. Smell the flowers, follow along the established pathways. There are no flowers to sew on but that doesn’t mean you won’t see flowers. There isn’t anything in our video or pattern collection that looks like this. I pushed and did the math to make it work!

Finally, the name of the blanket was affectionately named by Jeanne. I was doing a lot of math trying to get the corners not to pucker! It’s like the geometry wasn’t working. In the end, the geometry was solved. Therefore a lesson in geometry!

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.

    Can’t wait for this ‘Study’…wish it was starting sooner, but I understand. I am sure I will find other projects to work on while waiting.
    Really excited for this one Mikey!!

  2. Lori Dupont says:

    UPDATE: it is the Study of Possibilities That I am waiting for. 💜💜

    1. Mikey says:

      Yes, I haven’t had it tested yet as I am swamped on other things. I am dying to push it out too. I don’t know when yet.

    2. Kathy says:

      I love crocheting with Mikey.

      1. Mikey says:

        Thank you for your enjoyment of crochet. I love to share crocheting experiences.

  3. Lori Dupont says:

    I hope this was the one we saw a peek of, months ago….I am so looking forward to that one!

    1. Mikey says:

      I haven’t leaked a photograph of this one as I struck out twice in the design and produced two designs that weren’t to standard. So I carefully gaurded this one so it wasn’t in the backgrounds or showing progression just in case it didn’t work out.

  4. Sandy says:

    I’ve loved all your “Study” series so I can’t wait to see this one!

    1. Mikey says:

      Thank you for your enthusiasm.

  5. Rea W. says:

    Is this a virtual crochet along or just local?

    1. Mikey says:

      Always virtual. We have a ‘home studio’ and I don’t have people in my home. Cyber is the best place for my lifestyle.

  6. Maggie says:

    I can’t wait!! I’m so looking forward to seeing the pattern revealed and my completed pathway uncovered!!

    1. Deb says:

      I loved the previous studies of textures and am confident this one will be spectacular as well. Any idea on the start date?

      1. Mikey says:

        Probably second week of July. I don’t know that for certain though.
