Crochet Spring Stitch Along with JOANN

It’s your favourite time of the year, yep, the Stitch Along with our friends at Joann Fabrics and Crafts is back! Based on your interest, the designer has created another fun mystery that is intended to build your skills.

It’s A Stitch Sampler

This one is like a stitch sampler. Each week, I am showing you a unique concept. Though we stop at a certain point each week, each clue can be an afghan all to itself. So if you like a particular week, you can expand the clue to continue onward. It’s a neat idea.

If this is your first time working through total mystery crochet along with us here’s how it works. Each week a new clue is released here. If you miss a week, don’t worry! The progressive clues are collected here as well.

The Clues

Like always, we save the clues here on our website and keep the videos forever. So if you miss the Stitch Along with this time around, you can always come back another time.

Pattern Tutorials with Crochet Timings

Week 1 – March 12

  • Follow the lines to greatness as you make your first clue. While the instructions appear to be a lot, take a look at the crochet diagram available and see how the lines work their way through the project. All of the squares only have 18 rounds to complete.
  • Finished square is approximately 23″ x 23″.

Week 2 – March 19

  • The centre of this square starts off as a circle and then transitions to a square not too far into the project. Once beyond the circle, the remaining of the square has a 3 round repeat pattern going on. With an eye-popping texture that will appear instantly from the very beginning. Essentially, you have 2 of 3 rounds of straight double crochet and the 3rd round is the texture being applied. So it’s nice to have texture but 2 rounds of regular crochet to zoom through.
  • Finished square is approximately 23″ x 23″.

  • Use the same hook size and yarn you selected for Week 1. If your square isn’t to the size of everyone else’s, don’t worry about it if your square isn’t buckling. Just means you are either a tight or looser crocheter. By using the same hook size and yarn, each square should work out for you.
  • You will use Colour B for this clue. So not the same colour as you used in Week 1.
  • The clue will take 4 – 5 hours to complete. It’s the longest square for the entire project.

  • Use Colour A (Same as week 1). Use the same hook size, 5 mm/ H Hook and yarn brand you selected for this stitch along. If your square isn’t to the size of everyone else’s, don’t worry about it if your square isn’t buckling. Just means you are either a tight or looser crocheter. By using the same hook size and yarn, each square should work out for you.
  • This square won’t take as long as week 2 as the cables start to materialize before your very own eyes. With a unique perspective on the corners, I touched on areas where I think you may lose stitches so you know exactly where to go.
  • The clue will take 3 – 4 hours to complete.

  • When the four are sewed together, you will complete the border as suggested. There are 3 rounds required for each of the 3 colours. However, I have made an exception for the challenge to eliminate out 2 rounds. Colour A – 3 Rounds, Colour B – 2 Rounds, and Colour C – 2 Rounds.

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.
