Tanja’s Crochet is a handmade shop that sells crochet items. They are exquisitely well-stitched with attention to detail, and I love the simple beauty of the designs. I’m enchanted by the website, which showcases each of the different designs in a creamy white color; it reminds me of the work of Anna Kosturova in this way. But I’m also charmed by Tanja’s Crochet on Instagram, where the same pieces are featured in different color options as well.
