Sellick and Zondervan, known as Mikey and Diva Dan to their legions of social media followers, are the creative community builders behind “The Crochet Crowd,” a popular, long-running YouTube channel. In their first book, they share personal stories about their crochet journeys, illustrated with quirky photos, describing how they built their crochet business from Mikey’s first video about crochet basics into a global sensation. The colorful projects, designed by Selick and Zondervan along with designers from the Crochet Crowd community, range from small accessories like hats and scarves to intricate afghans, and the authors use yarns that are inexpensive and easy to purchase at big-box craft stores, ensuring that the finished items are both durable and washable. Project instructions include both written and charted instructions.
VERDICT It’s easy to understand why Mikey and Diva Dan became YouTube sensations; their love of crochet shines throughout this book, and their delightful stories will charm readers. This lively, fun collection is a must for their fans, and is likely to bring additional crochet enthusiasts into their crowd.
