The Twisting Braids Crochet Blanket brings a feminine touch to Bernat Blanket yarn. This free beginner pattern teaches you how to form chain links by twisting the previous foundation row of the double crochet stitches, to make a braid-like effect. The blanket is finished with an interesting fringe, made by twisting the yarn and letting it coil around itself. The result? A sweet take on extra snuggly Bernat Blanket.

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.

    The link for this blanket doesn’t work anymore. Is there somewhere I can find it? Should I search Ravelry for it or will that lead me back to the same site?
