Have you been out in the garden much? Have you spotted any snails or caterpillars or other critters? Maybe, maybe not, but you can see a bunch of them here today in crochet.
Summer seems to be officially here. What that means in San Francisco is that it’s suddenly really cold and windy and hard to find the sun! Yep, it’s all a little backwards weather-wise here every year, but that’s okay. I’ve lived here almost ten years now so I know what to expect. However, that doesn’t stop me from occasionally daydreaming about places where the beaches are actually warm (like when I was in Belize!) so in honor of that today I thought I’d share a roundup of projects that combine crochet with driftwood, that lovely wood from the beach!
Crochet chevrons (also known as ripples or waves) are a popular, beautiful, simple crochet pattern that can be used to make anything from a headband to a blanket. I love chevrons and want to encourage you to try them if you’ve never used them before. This roundup is intended to inspire you!
Did you know that May is National Bike Month? Crochet and bicycling can go hand in hand. Of course, you probably shouldn’t crochet while you’re on the bike but you can definitely crochet for your bike. A bicycle decorated with one of a kind crochet is a beautiful, personalized work of art. Here are some photos of bicycle crochet to inspire you!
For awhile everyone seemed to be crocheting owls. Then it was all about the fox. Now I seem to keep seeing crochet pigs popping up everywhere. Anyone else noticing this trend? Here’s a roundup of crochet pig patterns and inspiration in case you’re interested in hopping on the piggy bandwagon.
As the weather gets warmer there are going to be more and more parties outdoors. Decorate your outdoor space (and an indoor party for that matter) with beautiful themed crochet bunting. Here are some photos of some of my favorite crochet garlands to inspire you in your party planning!
In December I went to Belize and one of the things I still remember so clearly is that there were beautiful rainbows over the water on several different occasions (including one stunning double rainbow). I thought I’d celebrate the beauty of rainbows today with a colorful, inspirational roundup of rainbow-colored crochet.
