Tapestry crochet is a unique niche of crochet that emphasizes colorwork and graphic patterns. It is made by carrying yarn colors along behind the work and switching out those colors to create your patterns. It can be done using just the very basic crochet stitches that you probably already know. This roundup has nine tapestry crochet tutorials/ patterns plus another 32 photos of tapestry crochet designed to inspire you with all that can be done in this craft.
I always pause for a moment to enjoy the granny square art photos that filter through my Instagram stream thanks to artist WorkByKnight. This artist doesn’t crochet (as far as I know) but takes accumulated images of crochet granny squares from various sources and uses them as the basis for wonderful art images.
This is Jamie’s first-ever crocheted mandala. She shared:
“It is a 12-round Wink mandala in Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, both solid and variegated, made in hopes that it brings comfort to Wink’s community, helps spread the word about mental health issues, and serves as a reminder of love, art, light and life. I am grateful for Wink’s art and generous spirit and for this memorial to her.”
For those of you who are just joining in, this is the Sunday Instagram crochet roundup. Anyone who wants to is welcome to tag their own crochet photos on Instagram each week using the #crochetsavedmylife or #crochetconcupiscence tags. These are collected here, where I try to sort at least some of them into themes so that we can see what’s trending right now in crochet. They don’t all get posted (blurry images, doubles, private accounts are a few examples of some that don’t make the cut) but a large percentage of them do so feel free to join in!
