Summary of Episode 4 with Mikey
I asked Mikey about the origin of the name The Crochet Crowd and I was surprised that it wasn’t actually him who has come up with the name! But I love the story behind it and how he became “The Crochet Crowd”.
He reveals how the critique from his partner in life and business moves him forward and makes him do better.
I was happy to hear that Mikey is a fellow geek when it comes to statistics and data! We both enjoy analyzing numbers and not just the crochet patterns.

Mikey talks about a few secrets of the trade when it comes to disguising a few mistakes and differences in samples versus the patterns.
I asked Mikey what he would be if he wasn’t a crochet designer and he shared a really personal story with me. It was an emotional moment in Mikey’s life and I loved that he shared that with us.

Mikey talks about his first-ever crochet book The Crochet Crowd: Inspire, Create & Celebrate. He shares why he decided to publish his first physical book.
Here is what Mikey says about his book:
“I felt I couldn’t do the book alone as our company, The Crochet Crowd, was not formed or created alone in the journey. It took a community of people to assist and trust in our platform. So it’s been a journey for everyone behind the scenes, including the digital and testing team.
The book is like our communities, diverse in interests and projects. Our first book has an eclectic collection that is stand-alone projects. The only theme of the book is “The Journey”.”
