Crochet Study of Texture Afghan Rectangle Version

Donna Bondy, our guest designer, has adapted my original Study of Texture Afghan to be a rectangle instead. Her adaptation didn’t take away any of the texture in the original. The afghan is a different shape and takes approximately the same amount of yarn to do as a rectangle.

Donna has provided a bonus addition to increase the size by 20″ per side. For your convenience, she has tested the pattern twice.

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.

    No matter how many times over restarted the rectangular version, round six never comes to the same stitch count as the pattern. I think the stitch count seriously needs to be redone on it. For me, that’s a major way for how I have learned to crochet properly. I’m going to ignore the count and continue on, but it is very inconvenient and causes a lot of frustration for many one sure.

      I can pull this offline… probably sounds like it needs to be.

      1. Sade says:

        It’s frustrating for sure having the stitch number off. I’ve been rewriting it for my own pattern collection. If you know the stitches, you can figure it out or fudge it at least.

      2. Mikey says:

        This was designed by someone else using my stitch combinations. I worry about changing her writing that it will change something else in the future rnds which may not be immediately known. I’ll take this down as an option and archive this pattern. I appreciate your honesty and I am tremendously sorry for this. I haven’t crocheted this version myself to comment first hand to it.

    Hello,

    The blue button takes me to the original pattern, not the rectangular pattern. Thank you.

    I’m working on the rectangular study of texture. Have all the right counts up to row 27. Is the stitch count correct for row 28. Doing the math I get 146 stitches on LS, and 128 on As.

    1. Marina King says:

      If the pattern works up how it’s supposed to, I wouldn’t get too hung up on stitch count. It’s really easy to add or subtract stitches in this pattern as needed as long as the pattern is working up properly.

  6. Patricia says:

    Were the stitch counts revised based on the previous questions?

  7. Kimberley says:

    Hello Mikey, you said we should contact you if we found an error in the Study of Texture blanket, rectangle version. At the end of row two, the stitch count says, “15 sts BC LC 3 sts BC SS.” I believe this is the count at the end of row 1. If this is not correct, please let me know.

    I’m having the same problem as Janis and Kristie. Row 25… 92 stitches dived by 4 only gives 23 spaces. This is supposed to be a gift for my brother and I need to complete it in a couple of weeks. Help!!! 🙂

  9. Theresa says:

    There are some numerical errors with the counts – they are not correct on row 5, 7, and 10 so far – reduce the numbers by two. Interestingly the next rows have correct counts. I am only up to row 13 and so there may be more errors.

  10. Linda Wendt says:

    I saw your video regarding a shawl using this pattern. When will it be released?
    I love this pattern.

    1. Was released earlier this week. Under Study of Texture Shawl.

    WHAT ROWS DO YOU CHANGE COLORS ON THE STUDY OF TEXTURE AFGHAN RETANGLE BY
    DONNA BONDY? INSTRUCTIONS DO NOT SAY WHEN TO CHANGE YARN.

  12. Janis Casey says:

    On round 25 I can’t get 24 chain three spaces, it only has 90 stitches , with the two on each end 92. So 90 or 92 divided by 4 is twenty three. Please tell me how to get this right so I can finish the rectangle version of the crochet along. Please help me thank you for listening. I would like to finish this before the end of September.

    1. Kristie says:

      I’m having the same problem. The counts don’t work. I’m making mins as a Christmas gift. Did you figure it out?

      1. Rini says:

        I went ahead and messed with things to squeeze in 24 chain 3 spaces but now that I am on row 28, my count is off. If I had stuck with 23 spaces, my count would have matched. Hope this helps you.

    Have finished the summer 2018 CAL, and love the finished product. I now plan to hook up a rectangular version, simply because I love the pattern and will make the second one for my mother in her colour choice. Thank you Mikey and Donna for your exceptional talent.

  14. Mary Simm says:

    I have started the rectangle version of the afghan and have discovered that the stitch counts do not correspond to the row they are entered. The count for row 1 is in row 2, the count for row 2 is in row three and so forth. The counts are correct, they are just entered in the wrong row.

    1. I found errors on the rows with sc – it seems that the numbers need to be decreased by two.

  15. Love all you show us. I wouldn’t be on my game plan as well asI am without you amd your awesome team. Special thanks for the extra ” sizing up information, I love making special blankets.
