Back in the spring, when I interviewed designer Lena Skvagerson about the Annie’s Signature Summer Love Collection of knit and crochet patterns, I asked her if there would be future seasons to come. She responded, “We are hoping the first collection is welcomed by our customers, and with our full hopes in this, we are right now in the first phase of planning a follow up fall collection.” And here we are, headed into fall, with a brand new collection launching today: The Autumn Bliss Collection.
We have been looking recently at crochet dream catchers. When you make a dreamcatcher, you often incorporate feathers into the design, particularly into the tassels that hang from the bottom of the piece. It is always fun to make a mixed media piece, but it might be even more fun to crochet your own feathers to add to your dream catcher. These crochet feather patterns and tutorials can guide you.
I miss doing the weekly roundup of Link Love shares, featuring all of the awesome things people are sharing and making in crochet, which I had to cut out of the blog because of how time consuming they are. Every once in awhile, I get an awesome sponsor who helps me bring an edition back, which is how this post comes to you today. A huge thanks to American Yarns for bringing us this post.
Jessie at Home is one of my favorite blog sponsors in large part because she creates terrific (often free) crochet patterns that I’m authentically happy to share with others.
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.
Here are ten sets of crochet patterns (meaning more than twenty individual patterns) for you to enjoy crafting.
I love exploring different crochet books, and it’s always interesting to see what other bloggers I respect think about different crochet books that interest me. In addition to some great recent book reviews, there are some new crochet magazines out on the market.
