I’m loving the #howilearnedcrochet stories that are being shared through Instagram. It’s always so fun to learn more about the people who are doing great crochet and how they came to start doing it. I wanted to share some of those stories here today but of course you can check the IG hashtag to read them all.

Then I got to wondering – why haven’t I collected all of these articles in one place? Well, I ask that no longer – here is the archive of crochet health stories to date.
I shared this baby bereavement hat photo by Instagram’s amimami10 as one of the top ten photos of the week in yesterday’s crochet photo roundup. I’ve been so touched by the comments people have left on my Instagram share.
