link love posts Link Love for Best Crochet Patterns, Ideas and News

Link love is my way of giving back to the crochet community by highlighting the great work out there each week from crochet bloggers, designers, artists and more. Last week I shared why I do this and why I think it’s important. Since I didn’t do any links last week, this week’s massive edition includes the best posts from the past two weeks in crochet.

Do you enjoy link love? It takes a lot of hard work. Donations appreciated to keep it going. Every bit helps.

Crochet Quote

“I love to read the vintage patterns, peruse the project images, and learn about the popular crochet fashions of the late 1800s. I have crocheted from a few of these antique patterns, and I recommend the adventure for every crocheter.” – Toni Rexroat at @crochetme
