Melissa Leapman’s Indispensable Stitch Collection has truly become indispensable to me since I first got it in the fall, so of course I was excited to receive a copy of her Designer Crochet Accessories book to check out.
Those of you who have children (or are in college yourselves) are in that back-to-school time. Here are some ideas for the many different types of things to crochet at this time of year!
I just completed a roundup of free crochet sock patterns over on About.com (along with a few book recommendations for people who want to crochet socks). I knew that I had a bunch of different images of crochet socks here in the Crochet Concupiscence archives so I thought I’d go ahead and round those up as well, offering some crafty inspiration to people interested in this area of the craft.
Dudes who can pull off an original sense of style don’t have to look any further than the Lord von Schmitt Etsy store for great options, the newest of which is legwarmers for men.
I was just browsing the Buylevard fashion site and came across Stella Rittwagen, a brand that creates unique crochet bags that I’m inspired by. I can especially see using the doily basket bags as inspiration for my own DIY project.
I recently crocheted myself a lovely stretchy scarf. It’s made with Loops & Threads super fine merino/ nylon/ cashmere blend yarn
This is one of the most recent instant gratification crochet projects that I’ve made – a chunky crochet cowl.
