7 Awesome Crochet Blog Sponsors
The seven people who are currently sponsors of the Crochet Concupiscence blog are:
Marinke Slump, also known as Wink, runs the beautiful A Creative Being blog, which includes free patterns, peeks into her life and lots of crochet. Wink does tons of beautiful crochet work but is especially known right now for her crochet mandalas and command of colorwork in crochet. She says: “I hope to inspire people to be creative on a daily basis, and to spread that happiness!”
This website, run by Tracy, aggregates crochet information in one place and includes patterns, crochet hook reviews, blog and site recommendations, informational crochet articles, and various online tools like a stripe generator. You’ll also find articles and links to all types of crochet resources including yarn stuff, designer and artisan info and the other online crochet communities. Crochet Happy was one of the first sites to do this, started before sites like Ravelry and before blogs were common so it was a forerunner and aggregating crochet information into one go-to place and continues to serve as a place with a wealth of information.
3. Jocelyn Sass
Jocelyn is a crochet designer whose adorable crochet patterns can be found in her shops Cute Crochet, Too Cute Crochet and the new Jocelyn Designs.

This is a crochet business mentoring program so if you’re interested in selling your crochet work and skills then you might be interested in this. From the site: “be ready for the wealth of business-building information you’ll receive in the form of exclusive videos, interviews, live mentoring calls and bi-weekly newsletters.”
Anastacia Zittel is a crochet blogger, a knit and crochet teacher certified by the Craft Yarn Council and an independent pattern designer. As a designer Anastacia works to raise money for Alzheimer’s research. She donates to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and has one by-donation pattern, Ruth’s Bracelet, that is dedicated to her grandmother Ruth who died from this illness.
Check out the Crafty Book Challenge that Anastacia is hosting this year for people who enjoy reading crochet fiction and non-fiction. Join her Ravelry group for CALs and other hook goodness. See all her designs on Ravelry. I’m personally loving her newest free crochet pattern: The Three Triangles Shawl.
