Crochet Simply Soft Pattern

Crochet Afghan

This Crochet Simply Soft Stripes Afghan is made up of 3 panels. The panels are full of texture. There’s a lot of learning possibilities for mixing up some great stitches.

The idea that compels me with this afghan is that you can make an afghan without having to be buried under it halfway through the project. It makes it easy ‘hooking on the go’ without having to pull out a mega project from your yarn bag.

All of the panels are easy to master once you under the repeating stitch which is pretty simple. Once you get that, you will have this afghan licked!

Follow the tutorial below for all three panels that are made in this project.

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.

    Hi again, maybe this had been picked up but in the shells and popcorn panel there is no mention of popcorn stitch.

    1. Mikey says:

      I’ll have to circle back another time to glance the pattern in more detail. It’s possible they refer to the popcorn as a cluster or bobble. I’ll have to find more time to give it a glance.

      In the written pattern, no popcorns. They are, however, in the video. So, boo to oversight of the pattern but hooray that there’s a video! Frogged four times and now, heck with written pattern. As for length, I just make all panels equal. Lovely pattern – enough to print errata! Thanks.

  2. Linda says:

    Hi, are you able please to tell me, for each of the strips, what the stitch multiples and plusses are, I’d like to make each larger. Thank you

    1. Mikey says:

      I’ll have to redraw the diagrams again another time so I can figure that out for you. I have to pencil in a couple hours to do that but I don’t know when yet. I’m sorry.

    In the video doesn’t say how long are the panels and how to stitch them together

    1. Mikey says:

      Let me read the pattern. Be right back.

    2. Mikey says:

      The pattern states to repeat rows 3 & 4 – 54 times. The pattern also states to Whipstitch the panels together. Here’s how to do that.

      1. Isabel says:

        In the first panel the weave basket says rep 3rd to 6th 26 times then 3rd to 5th row once. It’s confusing I want to know how many rows total its 26 rows all together.
        Then the panel post and shells and panel shells and popcorn says its rep 3rd and 4th 54 rows or how many rows all together including with the first row. I’m Spanish speaking and I’m better with diagrams than written patterns. I love this pattern and it’s easy to crochet I’m having difficulty in the number of rows. I just finished the the Crochet Stich Sampler afghan and it was so easy to follow cause of the diagram.

        Thank you so much

      I just answered Isabel on this.

  5. Summer says:

    How would you join the panels togeather, sorry I am still new to this and have never joined anything this large

    1. Mikey says:

      I would do a whip stitch if you were to join them. Here’s a video on how to whip stitch.

    I was looking for the diagram for the Crochet Simply Soft Stripes Afghan. I clicked the link and it took me to a chevron pattern? If you would like the PDF of the diagram I used in this video. You can get it here. Is the diagram still available?

    1. Marina King says:

      I’m not sure why it was doing that, I added the blue pattern button that will take you to where you can get the pattern, sorry about the confusion, it had me a bit stumped myself haha.
