For today’s 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards I’d like to give an award for the best crochet pattern roundups of the year. This year’s crochet award goes to Stitch and Unwind.

About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award

It’s always helpful when a blog rounds up the best crochet patterns around a specific theme. This allows us to get inspiration about different types of projects we might want to try. It provides us with variations on the theme so we can see what we most want to work on ourselves. And of course it links to the free crochet patterns for us to use. This is worth recognizing.

Why the Winning Blog Won

Stitch and Unwind regularly does crochet pattern roundups linking to various free crochet patterns from their network. What I love most is their themes, some of which are common themes that many of us are interested in working (such as round ripple afghan patterns) and others that are truly unique and inspirational (such as tribal crochet patterns). Each post includes a personable introduction to the theme. The links to the free crochet patterns are sometimes sorted by subcategories within the theme. Well-done!
