YouTube is constantly evolving and hosts come and go. Some hosts, like The Crochet Crowd, slam a lot of content while other hosts are more on a tempered release schedule. I’m a Stitch Ambassador for Yarnspiration which means I can teach a lot of projects without being the designer.


Being A YouTube Host

Being a host is extremely stressful, at least for me. It was a mere hobby that changed to a business format during my time on YouTube. As soon as you expose yourself to a public realm like YouTube, you are subjected to cheers and jeers. Some jeers can be so personally hurtful at times. I applaud all of the hosts on YouTube.

I’ve learned to pick my battles and know my personal limit on what I can accept for myself. The biggest issue with the platform is the users who are unaware of how to use YouTube. Very trigger ready to leave really condescending comments when sometimes, it’s their lack of knowledge on how to use the search engines and more. It’s a tough gig to inspire and be the host that people expect of you.


Let’s Go Through the Top 10

Many channels that are leading are Spanish Speaking as crochet is more popular in countries where English isn’t the first language.

#1 MilArt Marroquin – Leader of the pack with Spanish Speaking Tutorials from the USA. With 1.16 million subscribers. For those who speak Spanish. Some videos, marked with Subtitles, can be changed to other languages.

    Why aren’t any of the amazing black women who host channels not included in the list? TL Yarn Craft has the best tutorials for Tunisian crochet.

      The metrics are based on user engagement. It has nothing to do with the skin colour of a host. Yes, I agree, there are some amazing hosts out there but the Top 70 are chosen based on Feedspots Analytical Data. Some people are upset that there are not more representations from the USA or Canadian hosts but it has nothing to with where people live. It’s all analytical. There is nowhere in our sign up forms on YouTube when we are a host to ask us our skin tone. So it’s not an analytical factor. You are more than welcome to contact Feedspot to discuss the ranking and determination.

      I didn’t choose the list and it’s not based on my personal favourites. Michael

    Thanks, Mikey for this info!! I know many of the sites and look forward to seeing those new to me. For those who say they don’t care for a particular host, it’s just different approaches work for different people! We’re not all alike, thank goodness!!! Happy crocheting everyone!!!!!

    Love this list so much! Being Mexican/immigrant patents, I love that there is so many hispanic crochet channels! Thanks Mikey!

    Being taught by my Grandma over fifty years ago, you could say I’ve seen and done quite a lot of patterns, yarns, techniques. The last ten years or so we’ve seen an explosion of yarn colors, fiber content, new takes on old patterns. Just look at the simple “granny square” as an example.
    Amazing! I will always say YouTube is wonderful as a tool but for the most part nothing replaces hands on instruction. I’m so grateful to all who have brought back fiber arts. Its been theraputic for so many people! Also, there’s nothing more rewarding than a completed project or the appreciation of a gift recipient! 🤗

    I agree you have some good ones maybe but you left out the great ones ll
    Like jadanstitches bag o day and others
    And fiber spider you missed a lot of great ones that deserve to be in top 10

    • Mikey

      Agree. The information I got was from metrics analytics based on Feedspot. That’s who was measuring and looking at back end programming for this I believe.

  6. JOSEPHINE Connelly

    What about Fiber Spider.

    • Fiber Spider is a great host, but these stats were pulled straight from YouTube.

  7. Kris Crawley

    Hey! What about Jaydainstitches. Shes quirky and very good teaching…way better thamikey. He is tooo fast and sometimes shows off.

    • These stats were pulled straight from YouTube, they were not our opinion.

  8. Laura from HappyBerry said she is transitioning to art and painting FYI. I love her patterns but am happy for her.

    • Mikey

      Oh, I didn’t know that. Thanks for the update.

    • Fely T Fernandez

      Congrats

    Funny not to see Bag O Day on this list. They have an amazing yarn community there.

    • Mikey

      Yeah I was saying on Facebook. I’m so surprised some of the other hosts aren’t even in the list. Crystal is in the list just beyond Top 10. Some of the mainstream hosts are not even in the top 70.
