Every Sunday I round up the Instagram crochet photo submissions for the week and share them here. It’s a way to help connect the crochet community, provide a platform for showcasing the amazing work that people are doing and highlight some of the current crochet trends. Learn how to join in on Sunday’s Instagram Crochet posts here. This week’s shares:

Featured Crochet Item

The single most outstanding crochet photo submission this week was this prayer shawl from mlissabethgr. There’s just something I love about the boldness of the colors heightened by the black stitching and combined with the stitch pattern.

Featured Crochet Instagrammer

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is Anthea of forestflowerdesigns. She describes herself as a “designer/maker crafter, yarn addict, lover of books, blogger, thrifter, and taker of way too many pictures”. She is “a busy mum of one very inquisitive primary school boy and partner to one motorcycle nut” and she loves to upcycle. This week she shared some terrific crochet squares:
