I’ve been looking back at my earliest link love crochet posts from several years ago when I didn’t even include photos in the roundups. I noticed that there are a lot of great crochet patterns buried in those links, so I decided to pull some of those out for us to take a look at today.
Emmy says, “I learned how to crochet when I had lost all hope. Then I read Crochet Saved My Life, and I knew crochet was for me. “
Mandy of RedAgape, who crocheted Wink’s Picots and Petals Mandala, describes herself as a “crochet obsessed guesthouse owner, blogger and photographer”.
Michelle shares, “I taught myself to crochet last June / July and quite honestly I think it kept me sane at a very difficult time, since my brother took his life at the end of last July.”
