The Crochet Crowd was first developed through YouTube as a community. Our website and social presence that we know today as Social Media followed about 2 years after as we were on the cusp of a new generation of How-To Tutorials.

Playlists are updated each time a new video is added to YouTube, which is daily in some cases. There are currently 310 ways that our tutorials are sorted. Below is an organized alphabetical list for your enjoyment. Each link will take you directly to YouTube to exactly the playlist that matches.

Project Levels

Projects here are sorted by the level that is assigned to the pattern. We don’t do many advanced level projects, so Intermediate and Advanced are grouped together as well.

Projects Patterns by Category or Theme

Projects are grouped together to match themes which include the usage of the project. Whether it’s for home decor, babies and clothing.

Special Occasion Patterns

Projects are sorted by calendar or life events that stand apart from the rest of regular crochet projects. Whether it’s festive or even patriotism.

Stitch Concepts or Techniques

These are concepts like a mosaic overlay or unique stitch combinations that are used in several types of projects. Examples would be crocheting with wire, hugs & kisses stitches, graphghans and much more.

Crochet Patterns Broken into Video Chapters

These are projects where chapters are made for either section of a project so the community can work together in a project. Breaking a major project into chapters also makes the project feel more doable. In time, some major stitch alongs are combined into a mega video, other times, they are left on their own.

Crochet Patterns by Yarn Brands

Videos are sorted here by the brands of yarn that are used in the project. Sometimes, the projects are shown with different yarns during filming due to inventory or preference for learning purposes.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, is the creator of The Crochet Crowd. From Nova Scotia, Canada. He is informal and teaches on YouTube to expand the global crocheters' knowledge of ideas and stitches.

Started unofficially in 2008 and transitioned into a full-time job in 2011. He is a stitch ambassador for Yarnspirations in teaching crochet. Most of the patterns he develops are free for you to enjoy.

    Have learned So much from you! Thank you for ALL you do..
    Have you done a tutorial on how to turn a circle into a square? Is there a magic formula that you use?

    1. Mikey says:

      There is a formula but it’s a formula based on knowledge and not a spreadsheet sort of thing. It’s probably why such a resource doesn’t exist.

    Love your Tutorials. I was wondering if you are able to do a tutorial on REVERSIBLE GEOMETRIC CROCHET BLANKET (

    I have some issue understanding patterns and I find your tutorials really help me to understand what the pattern is saying.

    Thank you

    1. Mikey says:

      I think a filmed a version of this before. Wasn’t it a baby blanket at some point? I looked at the diagram. I think this is the same pattern as this baby blanket.

    Mikey, thank you so much for all of the tutorials. They are amazingly helpful! Could you do a tutorial on C2C graphgan that goes row by row? I have the unicorn pattern from Repeat Crafter Me that I would like to complete going row by row but would like the C2C look/texture. I watched to C2C-Row by Row tutorial but I’m not sure how it would work out with a graphgan. Thank you for your help/advise.

    1. Mikey says:

      I prefer not to film something like that. I am so scared of messing it up in the tutorial. I’m unsure how to film a C2C in row by row instructions without sounds very repetitive and people criticize me for already talking too much in the tutorials as it is.

      If the pattern is Sarah’s, she may oblige you as this is something she could do with her own pattern. I would ask her through her website if you have a chance.

    Hi Mikey
    I have request. Can u show how to make vintage Sunflower Popcorn Bedspread Pattern. I would love to make it but following the PDF pattern is difficult. The pattern is given in ‘Priscilla Crochet Book Bedspreads’. Thanks in advance

    1. Mikey says:

      I haven’t had a designed a project like that. I cannot just film anything that I haven’t designed or by Yarnspirations.

    Don’t mean to be so forward, but will you be my crochet husband, Mikey? Disclaimer: I’m already happily married and have two hideous looking kids. The problem is: they call crochet knitting. *dun dun dunnnnnnnnnn* Yes, I know. *shakes head, defeated* I decided to teach myself how to crochet when I found a 3.25mm hook in a junk drawer in Nov. 2019. Quickly discovered this was not the right size for me to teach myself. 🙂 Any-who, your only “marital” obligation would be to let me tell whoever I want that you’re my crochet husband and answer a question here and there. Like: what’s a wrapped double crochet stitch? And: Can you make a video to show me?

    In all seriousness, thank you for your WONDERFULLY, well-done video tutorials. Because of the pandemic, you have become my go -to guy on learning new stitches!

    All the best!

      Crochet Husband Eh! I would make a lousy husband for sure. I’m a self-induced workaholic with mentally stuck in helping people cyberly at the cost of my relationship. This pandemic has been rough and I am circling the drain in depression at the moment and really struggling to keep my head above water. It’s hard to tread water in supporting others on this educational journey when I am gasping for air myself. It’s been tough.

      Thank you for this very kind message and I am glad our community can assist in this difficult time and really thank you for your appreciation for the work that is put into the community. Our team and I appreciate it, a lot!

    I know that you probably hear that you are a great inspiration to SO many people all the time. But I truly hope that you understand the scope of your inspiration! You really are an amazing person!
    I learned to crochet by watching my Mother & my Grandma when I was a little girl. But just the very basics of crochet. Since discovering The Crochet Crowd I have learned SO much more. I know that my Mom & Grandma would be so proud to see all the amazing things I have been able to create thanks to the way you teach it! I always feel their presence when I crochet. And that is very precious to me.
    I would never have continued to crochet & create the wonderful things I do without having come across you & The Crochet Crowd! You are such a blessing in my life!
    And I believe that you are loved & appreciated more then you will ever be able to comprehend. G-d truly blessed this world the day you were born! Thank you for being YOU!

    1. Mikey says:

      Afternoon Dodie, thank you so much for sharing your personal story with me. It’s amazing as we pick up stitches in time, starting your grandmother to get you started in the curiosity. The creativity unleashed feels so good! Thank you truly for being a part of our community.

    i wonder if there is anyone that can help me decrease the unicron blanket that has a purple border by jessice folpeek from 2017 its ac2c white unicorn with a purple border

  8. Allison Lomax says:

    Hi Mike
    Love your tutorials and creative patterns.
    I’m wondering if you would
    be interested in putting together a Fair Isle crochet tutorial and pattern.
    Hopefully yours, Allison

    1. Mikey says:

      I have tried this concept for crochet and I haven’t been successful with it. I am way too tight and tense during the making of something like this. I have done Fair Isle Mittens in tutorial format, I have also done Fair Isle in Tunisian and that is really much better. I think it’s the act of knitting that makes it easier for me.

  9. Lori Evans says:

    Could you do a demonstration on how to get the pattern to show properly in different sizes on the Premier Bloom yarns? i love it but don’t know how large a project i can make and keep the pattern in proportion.

    1. Mikey says:

      Morning Lori, we are not sponsored by Premier to run any products or patterns on our network. We did approach Premier years ago and they were uninterested in tutorials from me. The tutorials take time and money to produce. We don’t touch products where there is no sponsorship so the community can keep receiving free tutorials and patterns. I’m sorry.

  10. Mangai Thiru says:

    Can you post a call for Faire Isle crochet beanie

    1. Mikey says:

      I don’t understand. Can you rephrase your question.

      1. Joana says:

        Maybe she meant a CAL?

  11. Valerie Ross says:

    So funny! I just asked all the members where to find your tutorials just minutes before you posted this. I’m so excited to have all your tutorials! I will be watching many, many of them! Thank you so much, and thank you for being so awesome!

  12. Noelia says:

    So funny that while talking to my friend and suggesting your page she said: I love Mikey!!! Ive been following since forever! Keep inspiring and teaching! And having fun!

  13. Lorena Phillips says:

    Thank you Michael for being the Heart & Brains behind The Crochet Crowd Family! Your presence on screen in tutorials and videos is always so fun, enlightening, warm, and encouraging! I always find myself in awe that you’ve provided the gift of inspiration for many lifetimes over… free of charge!!!! Thank you again for being such a great creator, curator, tutor, mentor, teacher, and experimentalist!

    1. Mikey says:

      You’re most welcome. Thanks for enjoying what we have created. My goal is to keep crochet going on beyond my lifetime. The more people I can inspire, the more it goes into the future. I have no kids, so it’s the general idea to propel strangers.

  14. Mary says:

    Thank you! Checked out a few, so easy! I just hope I can find this later!!!!

    1. Janice says:

      Add page to your favorites to be able to find it easily.

      1. Mikey says:

        Thank you sincerely.

  15. Wanda Frost says:

    Wow! That’s all I can say. You put all this together for us. I’m a quiet crocheter, not as advanced as others but you give me the incentive to try new things. Thank you for your sense of humor. Thank you for this. Thank you for being you!

  16. Beverly Hopkins says:

    Still love you and Diva Dan. Do yall still come to NC for the yarn sale.

    1. Mikey says:

      No, we made arrangements to no longer attend that sale. It’s a long week and it stops me from being able to get my work done online that I have due dates for. They are a fun sale though.
