  1. Thank you for your hard work!

    Would you be able to explain how to convert your mosaic method ( 2 rows) into the one row – cut at the end of each row- method?
    I want to do the Nordic Stripes and the Joann CAL but I can only do the one row method.
    Thanks in advance!

    • Watch the video for the Nordic Stripes blanket it’s well explained and easy to follow along. I’ve never done a mosaic pattern before and my blanket is turning out awesomely thanks to Michael’s video

    • Hi my name is Salomie Stevenson and I’m looking for a crocheted hooded dinosaurs blanket pattern to make for my grandson? Please can you help me?
      Thank you so much

  2. Hi there! I came across the tartan plaid blanket tutorial on your YouTube site (published June 24, 2011) and was wondering if there was a written pattern anywhere for it? I’d love to try it but I like having something to read along with and I couldn’t find it on here. Thank you!

  3. i was wondering if there is a “mini me” pattern for the flora afghan.
    i would like to make a small one and hang it on my living room wall.

  4. The bernat stash blanket on has a broken link to the pattern. Not sure how to post there about it. I have posted in a few YouTube videos that also have broken links. My thoughts and prayers go out to your hard working crew hopefully when you get all the bugs worked out it will be smooth sailing and everyone can take a well deserved vacation.

  5. I am from South Africa and we dont have a lot of people that likes to share crochet patterns with other people most of them you have to buy.
    I am looking for a diagram crochet pattern for crochet socks for adults.
    All of them are written and i battel reading and crocheting the patterns with a diagram so much easier.
    If anybody knows of somebody that would like to share that with me i will highly apreciate it.
    love the crochet patterns and video’s awsome stuff.

  6. Hello,

    I am looking for someone who’s welling to supply us their crochet work and well to do some special requirement of our client … do you know someone…?

    we might need him to come her to Dubai to give some class as well


    • I really don’t know of anyone that can do that. For myself, I don’t give out my artwork. I have done sculptures but the time investment is substantial. I don’t know of anyone that would travel to teach like that.

      We do run Crochet Cruises in teaching on the cruise ships but we have not ventured outside of North America for that. We are scheduled for Australia, New Zealand and Fiji for 2021. It’s a long time away but we’ve not go to Europe or Dabai for crochet purposes. Just to Europe for vacations.


  7. I make my grandchildren Christmas hats each year and would like to make the girls the crocheted Twisted Peppermint hat with a wide ruffle. The pattern is the one where you crochet a parallelogram and then join the edges to make the twisted look. I have made this hat but do not know how to add the ruffled edge. I have googled it, looked for it on Ravelry and Pinterest and have not been able to find a pattern, only a picture. I tried to add the picture to this message but was unsuccessful. Do you have or know where I might find this pattern?

  8. Hi! I was wondering if there is anything called an crocheter’s block????? Do you ever take pattern suggestions??? Please say YES!!! I am looking for an ponytail hat with the hole in the back with an adjustable brim with button closure? I need at least 22″ around and then whatever to make the button closure. I have tried to mix and match patterns but it’s just not working and their yarn is bulky and I am using I Love This Yarn, 4 medium 7 oz. I have tried changing my hook size also, I just can’t get it and I know if anyone can make me a pattern it would be Mikey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. is there a correct name for the s shape form that you can crochet on, I bought this a listowel,on a few years back

  10. I was wondering if it is possible that you put in a way to list the free patterns by newest additions seen first, or oldest seen first?

  11. I just want to thank you for organizing by yarn brand/type! That is the most wonderfully helpful thing I think I’ve ever seen on a yarn/crocheting website! I have wished for exactly that so many times when looking through my yarn stash and wondering what to make with a particular yarn. TCC is the best and is always my first stop when looking for help or a new pattern!

  12. I am looking for a tutorial on a pillow made withBernat home dec pebble beach varigated yarn which I did not get the pattern name I think it is called loop chain. I thought it was you who did the tutorial and it was excellent. I bought the yarn and now I can’t find the tutorial. I seen it around the New Year holiday

  13. The other day, a photo of a completed walker caddy was shared. I have tried searching for the pattern, but failed. If possible, could you please create a tutorial on how to make one? I would love to make one for my 93 year old neighbor. My neighbor fell down a few months ago and broke her leg. She spent a lot of time in rehab and is now back home. She is currently using a walker to help get around.

  14. Mikey, you truly are a hooker at heart. I am learning how to crochet without any problems. And I owe it all to your easy to follow videos. Thank you so much. The Crochet Crowd ROCKS!!!

  15. Wow! I love, love, love the way you have this website organized!! It’s so easy to find what I am looking for & I love that everything is so neat & orderly! Beautiful job! I have been following The Crochet Crowd for awhile now but got busy & didn’t come on here for quite awhile. I saw a link on FB so I decided to check it out & I am so happy I did. You guys are amazing!! Sending big hugs!

  16. I’d like some advice on creating covers for my car seats. I can’t find a pattern and I’ve only been crocheting a couple years.. So I’m not sure how to make them without a pattern. Thanks in advance!

  17. HI,
    I am looking for the pattern shown under “Free Patterns” – “Tops”. It is the yellow one shown for the project gallery for Tops. When I click on the image, there are different tops there but I do not see the yellow one. Am I not seeing it if it is in a different color? I also checked tunics and vests.
    Thank you for your help.

  18. Looking for an instructional pattern for the Polish Star crochet afghan. I had a pattern but have misplaced it. I know how to weave it but not the steps to make it.

    Thank you

  19. Hey Mikey, I’m just doing the kerchief scarf and I was trying to follow the pattern on the back of the wool label, I got so confused and frogged it many times and still could not get it right, I’m hopeless at reading patterns even though I have been crocheting since I was around 12 yrs old, and thank god a nice lady from my crochet group reminded me of your videos, you are a godsend thank you ever so much, you explain and show us in such a way you make it look so much easier. Thanks again. Kerry from Australia.❤️

  20. Hi Mikey,
    You are doing a great job on the crochet, but do you also make tutorials of knitting a sweater with a v neck? How to knit a v neck?

    By the way I’m so happy with my Scandinavian snowflake afghan. Crochetgreetings from the Netherlands.

  21. Hi Mikey. I was wondering if you have ever used Tivoli Float in any of your crochet patterns. If not , can you tell me what sort of yarn equivalent pattern I should look for ? Thanx ever so much and please keep up all your inspirational work.

  22. I want to make an infant cocoon for twins. I see lots of single free patterns. However, I can’t seem to find free twin cocoon patterns. How would you alter or add to an existing pattern to make a cocoon for twins?

  23. I just watched your video on PFDC for a Sampler Series Afghan. I have been looking for the directions for the entire afghan, but can not find the one that you used for the video. Could you tell me where I can find that pattern. I now know how to do the stitch for the first square and now want to make the sampler afghan. Please Help if you can!

  24. Hi Mikey,
    I am doing your chevron blanket with the bead stitch. I followed your short tutorial on the pattern and did fine. When I finish the first row of bead stitch and turn my work to start the row of sc I chain 1 and then do 2 sc in the same stitch. I then count my next 5 sc before doing the 3tog but for some reason I get six sc spaces before I get to my 3tog. What am I doing wrong. I tried reading your written pattern but I am not able. Would you have another tutorial that shows more rows of this style of pattern?

  25. Hello Mikey,
    Thank you so much for the video of the yellow scalloped top! I’ve been wanting to make it for awhile but I’ve never made a garment before and felt I needed some instruction. So I was excited to find your video! Now that I’ve started, I have a question. Is there some way to make it a medium on the bottom and small at the top? I want it to fit loose like the picture but the size small seems like it’s going to be tight around the torso. I’ve tried a size I and J hook and I’m getting gauge in the length and the width is just 3-4 stitches over, with both hooks. I’m using Caron Sayelle. It’s a lot like simply soft. Thank you!

    • I had trouble getting the right size. What I ended up doing was I made the front a size small and the back a size medium and it fits perfectly!

  26. I have a question on the earthly tones octagonal throw. Jeanne did this with caron cakes. Since you don’t fasten off each round with the cakes yarn, would you just chain 1 to go up a row or sl st to st indicated?

  27. Hello

    Has the lazy wave/ripple baby afghan pattern been updated? The only one i can find is for a 59 inch x 4 inch project.

    Thank you!

  28. bonjour, impossible de me connecté sur le site qui a partagé les chaussons Cow-boys pour bébé, y-a-t-il une personne qui pourrait me les envoyés s’il vous plait .Merci merci merci Annie :

    • I’ve been trying to get someone who can explain the mistakes I found in certain patterns. Oh well, I can’t find a way to do that! Guess you don’t want to know about your mistakes!!!

  29. Has anyone ever made a Boho Circle sleeveless Vest before? My boyfriends mom wants me to make her one and she sent me a pattern but I don’t know how to start it? Anyone have a video of them doing it or maybe translate the symbol pattern into actual worded directions? I can email someone the pattern if they are willing to help me! Thank you!!

  30. I found the tutorial for the Mermaid Tail using the crocadial stitch. Can you provide a link to the pattern if there is one. I would like to make it.

  31. I am looking for a pattern that is for a Afghan my grandmother made for me. Is there a way to send a picture and have someone identify it? I would like to make one like it.

  32. Did I see that you (or was it someone else?) had an alternate for the c2c which didn’t use up as much yarn?!?!?!?! I’ve gone back looking for it, and can’t find it anywhere!

  33. I was wanting to know if I could sell the crafts I make from your patterns.
    I will not sell the patterns or mass produce the crafts just
    enough to help with my craft habits. Please email me and let me
    know by email.

  34. Hi i like all you stuff, where can i get the diagrams? My daughter play with Barbie dolls,can you please give us patterns please. I am a beginner and look at all your videos it is so easy to follow.

    Thank you for what you do

      • Mikey,

        I have watched your video on doing the mermaid blanket, tail, etc. but cannot locate the actual hard copy of the pattern. I’ve been sitting here at the computer for over an hour and cannot find it…can you help me? I babysit and cannot sit at the computer much, I need the actual pattern please….the one done with the bernat bright yarn. If you can help me I would appreciate it.

        Thanks, Norma Poynter…

  35. I am looking for a baby afghan-blanket pattern for one I made many years ago. I believe it was double crochet. I crocheted it in white. Then crochet a chain stitch the width of the blanket and weaved it through the white blanket from side to side. I think the chains were crocheted in pink and blue. Then I tied a piece of yarn and looped around the edge like fringe. I have been unable to find my pattern. Do you have any suggestions where I might be able to get a free pattern of purchase one? Thank you.

    • Hi Darla,
      Your baby blanket sounds like the first afghan I ever crocheted when I was expecting my 1st baby in 1970.
      The pattern was a (double crochet, chain-1) stitch*. Repeat after * until the blanket is the desired size.

      I crocheted mine in white also, made chains in pink and blue and wove them into the ch-1 spaces between the double crochets. I often wondered what the blanket would have looked like if I had used 1/4″ ribbon instead of the crocheted chains.

      In the blanket at the ends of the chains I also made pink and blue yarn fringe like you did.

      Hope this helps,

  36. Hello, I’m looking for a pattern for a Scarf Hat (crochet of course as I don’t knit). can you let me know where I can find one?

  40. Hi! I couldn’t find a place to send this…only do email…so I hope the person reading this can pass it on to where it belongs. I am no left-handed yet I continue to receive left-handed pattern instructions. Please, can someone change this for me? I have two email addresses and Love Mikey and the Crowd! Thank you!

    • The tutorial learning channel is a single platform. It updates subscribers for each new video regardless if it’s right or left handed. It’s not an option to segregate it as we don’t have that control.

      So sorry for the inconvenience but this is more YouTube than us. Michael

      • Hi there, I was wondering if there is s way to make the star blanket square? So that it looks like s star in the middle of a square blanket… Thank you! Connie

  41. Where can we find the maple leaf pattern? I click on the display link at the top of the page and it just takes me back to the main Crochet Crowd page.

    • Nice post. I understand something very cotlipcamed on distinct blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to see content from other writers and rehearse a specific thing at their store. I’d prefer to use some together with the content in my small weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide a link on the internet weblog. Many thanks sharing.

  42. I am trying to find a pattern for a pair of men’s shorts. I don’t care if it’s from the 70’s or today or if it’s free or a paid pattern… I have searched all over the internet and I don’t know where to turn now. I might have to make it up as I go along, but I would feel more comfortable with a pattern to reference. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  43. You show a pattern for the breast forms but not one that i am able to print. Is there any way to send me one to my e-mail address? One of my dear friends has recently had a double mastectomy and I want to help her out this way.

    • I would recommend you contact the original designer for that. Legally, I cannot do that. I am sure they can help you as it’s a charity organization. Good luck to you and I am so sorry to read about your friend. 🙁

  44. Please consider a tutorial for crochet stripes blanket designed by Lorna Miser using Caron yarn. I’m confused on row 1. It’s a new pattern on yarnspirations .. Thanks

  45. I was wondering if you had a pattern for a full sweater? I was given a bunch of Bernat Denim Style yarn and would like to make a sweater with it. Not a tunic or beach coverup, but just a good old fashioned pullover sweater. And the easier the better. Thank you.

  54. I started crocheting at the beginning of last year I followed a few basic techniques to get my confidence and decided that I wanted to do a cable pattern that is when I came across your tutorial and my obsession with the crochet crowd began. I was on a weeks holiday last September and followed your tutorial to the letter which after watching every day and making samples at every stage of the cable pattern I was able to make my first baby blanket for a friends baby boy, I then went on to make my daughter a blanket in the same pattern which I then backed with a fleece. I just thought I would let you know that you have helped me gain my confidence to do a lot more projects so Thank You Mikey ?

  55. Hi! I am Stella from Argentina.I love all your projects. I would like to receive the magazine to my e-mail.Thanks.

  56. There is a problem with the link for the pattern to do the women’s peaked hat pattern for the hat challenge. I want to make it but can not with out the pattern. I appreciate the help.

  57. Hello, Mickey, Happy New Year to both of you 🙂 Over the holiday season, I got some yarns as gift from well meaning friends from the USA.
    a.) 1-ball 3.5oz/100g/218yrds Red Heart Collage, color: Tundra;
    b.) 1-ball 3oz/85g/145yd Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, color: Purple Mist;
    c.) 1-ball 3.5oz/109yds Serenity Chunky Deborah Norville Premier Yarns Collection, color: chocolate;
    d.) 1-ball 5oz/142g/275yds Bernat Super Value, color: wedgewood;
    e.) 2-balls 2oz/56.7g/95yds Lily Sugar n Cream, color #02233

    I got all these nice yarns that are just for my eyes only before December. You see, we do not have these variety of yarns being sold here anywhere.

    My problem now is what to make of them? I do not want to make dish cloth or something of that sort with them but I would like to make something wearable or something that matters. I have been scouring the net for projects worthy of these fine yarns. But alas I was not fortunate thus I am turning to you and hoping you can help me out. Any suggestion is still a suggestion.

    Thank you and a Happy Happy New Year!

    Many thanks for help.

  70. Hai I am from India. I like the way you teach crochet lessons. While browsing videos, I come to know about filet crochet. I saw one of your video. Do you have any other videos on chart preparation for filet crochet or else any projects on it.

  75. Hello…I love your tutorials. I am doing the “learning to read patterns”. Hoping it will help as I really struggle…but I love watching the tutorials to make crocheted items. I am curious as to whether you have made the Bulky Poncho by VogueKnitting. I bought the pattern hoping I could read it…actually started and am stuck. Would you consider doing a tutorial on this pattern? I could send it to you.

  77. Mikey, I am trying to make the “meet me at the middle” top from Yarnspirations and uses Paton’s yarn. I am stumped on the second row of the top. There does not seem to be enough stitches in that row to make the ripples fit together, they seem to be turning out lopsided. Can you or one of your minions check this out. I have been working on it three days now and can’t “get there”

    Thank you so much.

  78. This is a great addition to your site, which has become one of my favorites! I can only hope I live to be 200 yrs old so I can get them all done! Keep up the crafty work…love you guys!
