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.

    Mikey, are you using the two different yarns at the same time on the hook? It does not specifically say. Love these, they are adorable.

    1. Hi Lynda, you want to use just one stand of 4 ply cotton yarn for these 😉 -cathy

    I think there is a mistake in your directions. It should say lily sugar and cream OR bernat 4 ply cotton.
