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!
Last year I wrote a guide for How to Crochet Your Way to the Perfect Halloween, with some crochet pattern suggestions for Halloween decor, costumes and other accessories. It’s time for a fresh new roundup of Halloween crochet patterns!
Back in July we looked at 25 new crochet accessories patterns but there are already so many more new patterns that it’s time for another roundup. Here you’ll find the most recent crochet patterns for bags, hand warmers, shoes, jewelry and other accessories.
I was really excited to see that there are 3 (maybe 3 1/2) mandala patterns out of the 10. There are many, many people that we can credit with making amazing crochet mandala patterns, but of course I really think that Wink was ate the forefront of bringing the crochet mandala into the eye of the crafting public and it makes me really happy that they continue to be popular in this year of her death.
According to my September calendar of random holidays, today is Elephant Appreciation today. Lots of people have made crochet elephants that I’ve shared in various places on this blog in the post so I figured why not round them up today in celebration!
Let’s look at some natural fibers in crochet and explore how people use their creativity with them. We’ll look at crochet in hemp, jute and twine … but first let’s look at the difference in these items.
Here is this week’s roundup of the photos people shared on Instagram using the #crochetsavedmylife and #crochetconcupiscence hashtags. Not all photos are included so check those tags for all of the shares! Feel free to join in this week to be included in next week’s roundup!
