It’s the time of the week when we take a look at what people are sharing in crochet using the #crochetconcupiscence, #crochetsavedmylife and #hooktoheal hashtags. You are always welcome to use these hashtags on any crochet photos on Instagram for a chance to be featured here.
I’m doing something a little different for this week’s edition of the celebration of Instagrammers who crochet. You can see all of the various contributions by visiting #crochetconcupiscence, #crochetsavedmylife, #hooktoheal and #mandalasformarinke on Instagram. But today, we’re going to honor the work of one fabulous featured crochet Instagrammer who shared an interview with us about the Weather Scarf she spent last year making, sharing it in stages with us using the community hashtags.
There are always so many inspiring things happening in the world of crochet. People all around the world embrace the craft and use it in so many different ways, often ways that are healing or soothing or giving. Here are 11 of those stories.
It’s time for the weekly roundup of things people are sharing over on Instagram using the hashtags for this blog. Many, many people are working on crochet squares, especially classic granny squares and large granny square blankets. I suspect that after making a lot of different things for the holidays, everyone wants to go back to more meditative crochet! On the other hand, a lot of people are making adorable amigurumi, including teddy bears, and I’m guessing at least some of that is inspired by the upcoming Valentine’s holiday.
We spent the last couple of months reviewing the work of a variety of beautiful Instagram crocheters, wrapping up with a roundup of 60 Instagram crochet accounts to get to know. Now it’s a new year and it’s time to resume new posts!
Over the past month and a half I’ve shared daily posts of Featured Instagrammers, who they are, what they crochet and the photographs that they share with us using the #crochetconcupiscence tag. It’s a way for you to meet new crafters, find folks to follow on social media and get your daily dose of crafty inspiration. Just in case you missed any of them, here’s the roundup of all of these great artists.
