About This Award
Learn more about what these awards are here. This specific award is for the best blog from a crochet magazine. The world of print publishing and the world of digital publishing are two different worlds and it’s tough to do both of them equally well. When a magazine manages to create a blog that offers fresh, interesting content that’s different from what’ in the print publication then it’s an asset to the crochet community.
About The Winner
The winner of this award is UK magazine Simply Crochet. It’s a dedicated crochet-only craft magazine featuring more than 20 crochet patterns monthly along with additional articles and information. The blog supplements the information in the magazine, highlighting various patterns and designers, offering tutorials and sharing inspiration.

Why The Winner Won
Here are some of the reasons that I selected this blog for this crochet award:
- Lots of free crochet patterns. What a bonus in addition to the patterns available when you buy the magazine.
- And also lots of crochet tutorials. Recent ones including a complete guide to Tunisian crochet and a tutorial for the magic loop.
- Attention to the season. Magazines are great at highlighting items that are seasonal and the blog does this as well.
Other Categories I Could Have Chosen
Each person is only awarded one award each year (and likewise, each award only goes to one person with a few exceptions) but of course each amazing blogger often does many things well. Some of the other categories that I easily could have given this blogger an award for include:
- Best Crochet App
- Best Multimedia Crochet Info (magazine, blog, newsletter, social media, app …)
- Best Crochet Tutorials
