About Mikey, The Crochet Crowd

I am Mikey, owner of The Crochet Crowd Blog. I'm a 'hooker' at heart with the passion to crochet. I am from Ontario Canada and teach how to crochet online through YouTube Video Tutorials.

Come follow my crochet journey and share yours with comments here and you are most welcome to share your creativity within our Facebook page.
