Chevrons are just such a fabulous stitch pattern, giving a nod to the history of the craft as well as providing a graphic pop for all projects. Worked in solid colors or muted tones, the chevron can provide a subtle sense of texture; worked in bright color changes it almost vibrates.
Maker Karen loves to do her own thing so she created her own mandala crochet pattern for this project, inspired by Wink’s designs. I love how three-dimensional they are, with the flowers popping out of the background as if they’re really growing!
Celebrate the work of the fabulous @annesurr on Instagram with this eye-candy roundup of her terrific array of crochet.
Saturdays on this blog are typically for Link Love. However, things are going to be a bit different for the fourth quarter of the year. There is a lot going on here and I need to plan out posts in advance so in lieu of link love you’ll find lots of themed crochet pattern roundups, inspirational image posts and other curated collections celebrating the amazing crochet work in this community.
Yesterday we took a look at 30 crochet pillow patterns. Sometimes it also helps to just look at what other people have crocheted to get inspiration so here are some fabulous crochet pillows that people have shared with us over on Instagram.
Crochet cushions are great. There are so many different ways that you can make them. You can create a whole huge set and change them out regularly to keep your space seasonally decorated or just updated in fun new ways. Crochet pillows make great gifts for others; they feel really special and personal without being too personal. There are so many great crochet pillow patterns out there.
I’m going to be changing things up for the rest of the year. There will continue to be lots of beautiful images, sharing the work of Featured Instagrammers who do great things in crochet and also including themed roundups from the first three quarters of the year. Keep on tagging your photos so we can all check them out using the hashtags!
