New JOANN Stitch Along Spring 2022

JOANN Stitch Along with The Crochet Crowd
JOANN Stitch Along with The Crochet Crowd

The new JOANN Spring Stitch Along is now being worked through. Honestly, it knocked my socks off! I gasped and I don’t say that lightly! WOW! 

I saw it and I turned my head on its side to look at the project and thought, can that actually be done that way? It literally checks my boxes off curiosity. CHECK CHECK CHECK and CHECK!

I have the working notes on how it was done but I haven’t taken a deep dive yet but this one is going to have many people saying “wha. wha… how did you do that?” 

Once this incredible design is released, I bet it’s going to capture the imaginations and people are going to say… What’s that pattern!?

Videos will be soon made for this as the clock counts down for later into spring. Once we have more details to share, I will do that! Don’t forget about me. I cannot wait to dive into this bad boy! It has me squealing in my chair here. It’s yummy!

Do you enjoy the stitch alongs? Leave me a comment below in the comments section.

    I enjoy the stitch alongs but haven’t finished 2 of the afghans yet, one from 2017 and one from just recently. When is this new one going to start and do we have to sign up for it?

  2. Ms. Ishmon

    I’ve been “hooked” ever since my first CAL in 2018. Love learning from you Mikey! Thanks so very much for all that you, Dan and the crew do for The Crochet Crowd. 🙂

  3. Beth L Acquarulo

  5. PATRICIA Rupp

    Love the CAL’s I don’t do all of them but many. You have taught me so much in the crochet world I’m forever grateful. Thank you Mikey.

  6. Cathy

    This will be my first stitch along!!! I can’t wait 💜

  7. Michele M

    YAY!!!! I have come to love CALs because they give me the motivation to actually finish a project in a set amount of time. I have finished more afghans and throws in the last few years by keeping on schedule with the crowd than I ever did in the 35+ years previous. (Started many, finished few).
    Plus I love to learn all the new stitches & techniques. I can safely say I have advanced from a basic beginner level to experienced Intermediate just by doing CAL’s over the years.
    Thank You!

  16. I have really enjoyed doing stitch alongs. I have been been knitting and crocheting for over 50 years. These challenge me to do projects I might not have chosen for myself. I feel I am also getting a jump on my gift closet. This is a good thing.

  17. Sue

    I want to add that a friend decided recently to try her hand at crochet and I obviously sent her links to all things Mikey to give her the best foundation to start her journey. She actually told me ” omg, I love him.”.

    • Ginny C

      I don’t think I’ve done a CAL from JoAnn’s before, so yes I’m in!❤️💜💙
      Is it using Big Twist yarn?

      • It will likely be a yarn available at JOANN and will be one of the family of yarns available from Yarnspirations. We will announce yarn and quantity needed when we get the approval from our sponsors for the crochet along

  20. I hope to be able to participate in the Spring CAL this year! The last one I was able to join was the Mosaic blanket. Really enjoyed it.

  21. Jody Oxenham

    I’m interested Mikey please

    I’ve participated in a few stitch a longs and I’ve enjoyed them all. Learned a lot too. I’m excited to see what this one is all about 😊

  27. Diana

    Yay! I’m excited. The spring stitch-a-long was my first SAL. I learned a number of new stitches and learned how to read a crochet pattern. The project was a lot of fun. It was also great to see people sharing their projects from around the globe. I’m eager to see what this spring’s SAL has in store. Thank you, Mikey, for your tutorials last year.


    I enjoy the CAL very much. I would like more of a rectangular afghan than a square please, but I think I can figure out how to make some changes. Your tutorials are very helpful and I use them all the time.

    • Mikey

      Your wish may come true. I don’t decide this for the JOANN SAL but I can tell you it’s not square. 😀

  29. DonnaJean smith

    I have loved every single one I have done with you. Can hardly wait for spring now. Thanks for broadening my days.

  30. Tammy

    I can’t wait to see it. I have just started crocheting a couple of years ago and I love doing these. It really pushes me, as teach me new thing. Love this. Thank you for all that you do to bring these to us.

  31. Rose Anderson

    I love the stitch alongs! You have taught me so much!!!❤ I feel that I have graduated from a beginner to an intermediate crocheter because of everything you have taught me. I tackled your harvest pumpkins this fall and just finished Ollie the Owl. Millie rhe mouse is up next!!! The last time I tried amigurumi it was a dismal failure. You have given me the confidence to try again. Keep making the videos….they are so helpful!!!
    Thank you for everything that you, Dan, and your entire team do to support out journey. YOU ARE AMAZING!!!! 🙂❤

  32. Lisa McCrillis

  35. Micki

    Looking forward to seeing what we will be making.

  36. Micki

    Looking forward to another challenge

  37. Beth

    I like Stitch Alongs for all the usual reasons (learn a lot, seeing other people’s colors, reading their comments) but most of all, I like being part of the grop of crochet friends. I have lots of friends, but none crochet so the CALs are very welcoming for me.

  38. Beth

    I like the stitch alongs for lots of reasons already stated (learn a lot, seeing other people’s colors, reading other people’s comments, etc.) but I think that best of all, I like feeling part of the group. I have lots of friends, but none who crochet so it is great to have “crochet friends.”

  39. Gayle Govednik

    I have never done a Crochet-A-Long thru Joann’s so I am excited!

  40. Jocelyn

    I love the stitch alongs! I can’t wait to see what it is

  43. Barbara Izzard Thynne

    Very curious to see this one. I am ripe for doing another Crochet-a-long 👍🏻💕

  44. Kathy Berthelet

    I love the Stitch Alongs! Last year I returned to crochet after a very very long break and the Stitch Alongs have taught me so much from reading patterns and charts while having the support of YouTube tutorial back-ups! I also love seeing how people’s colour choices can change the pattern ever so much. Looking forward to the next one…. after doing the current one!

  45. Rita

    Love doing CALs . I love learning different things and how well the colors blend together. 😍

  46. I enjoy doing the CALS. I don’t do everyone when they are released but I do check out the tutorials and patterns when they are . I print out the pattern and put it in my binder so that when I decide to do it I have it on hand. Hopefully I can use some of my stash when it comes out.

  47. Michele G

    I absolutely love stitch alongs. It is something I look forward to when I see the announcements. I constantly love challenging myself and crocheting new items. Excited!

  48. Sandra

    I am a sucker for Stitch-a-Longs. And it does say spring. Anything with the word spring gets my attention.

  49. Love the stitch slings. Try to do two or three when they come out. Usually follow the written pattern but really like that the tutorial is available if I get stuck.

  50. Sharel Wachob

    I love the Cals/Sals I have learned so many. New stitches and am now working on understanding the written patterns. Thanks for all you do

    I love your SALs. I have done every one since I found you! I keep them on hand for gifts and have donated several. Can’t wait for the next one! ❤️🧶

  57. Deborah Murphy

    I love stitch a longs because it gives me the the opportunity to stretch my skills and try new stitches and patterns that I may never try otherwise. Thank you to everyone at The Crochet Crowd for their efforts. PS thank Jeannie for the stitch counts in the Calming Comfort Afghan, if not for that I would have messed up several times. Thanks!

  58. Helene

    So looking forward to the new CAL!

  59. Lena Jenkins

    Love the stitch alongs. Working on on now.

    Can’t wait to see it. I don’t do all of them, but I try to do at least one a year. Thank you!

  66. Love stitch alongs because I know they will be challenging! Keep them coming please!!

  67. Shelly Brandell

    I love the stitch alongs. I always learn something new & create something that I never thought I could. Mikey’s videos are the absolute best! Thank you for all these wonderful patterns. In spite of stupid Covid, I’m having the time of my life. I’ve become a yarn addict too…. But don’t tell my husband ok?

      • Sherral

        You had me at “squealing in my chair”, Mikey!! Now I’m squirming in anticipation!

      • Karen

        Super excited for Spring’s CAL! I am on my fifth one currently. I am working on trying to “stay on schedule”, thought life gets in the way sometimes…ok, most times. They do make wonderful gifts!

    • Kathryn emery

      Can’t wait. I love your cals only been crocheting 2 years and can already read patterns and graphs confidently thanks to you. I have been a knitter all my life until i discovered your spring cal 2 years ago. I haven’t touched my needles since

  68. Raven

    I love doing stitch a longs! I can’t wait to see what this will be!

    • Sandra

      I use to enjoy them, but lately (in these pandemic times) in feels like we’re not given enough lead time to get yarn. I typically have to order mine online and by the time I find a supplier that has what I want and get the order placed it can take a couple months to arrive.

      • Mikey

        Valid concern. I will table that next Monday in my meeting. Thanks for calling attention to this.

  69. Lisa

    I can’t wait to see what it is! Love CALs!

  70. Annette

    I love doing the CAL’s !! I always learn so much and it’s fun seeing other peoples color story !!
