crochet instagram vercillo

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.

Here are this week’s shares.

Featured Crochet Item

I couldn’t narrow it down to a single favorite photo this week so I’m sharing two outstanding photos in the “featured photo” section:

The first is this great shot by annesurr. It’s a simple and straightforward image showcasing how crochet can be displayed beautifully in the home. I may have to set up a chair to show off the many blankets in my home!

Featured Crochet Instagrammer

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is Marianne Dekkers-Roos of marretjeroos. Marianne, who lives near the Netherlands with two each of dogs, cats and kids and one husband, loves crochet as well as other crafts, music, books, nature and food. Her Instagram feed is rich in images of beautiful crochet projects including terrific collages of crochet work. You can also see many of her makes in her Etsy shop and find Marianne on her blog and on Facebook. This week she shared:

Yarn Photos

It seems like a lot of people were sharing photos of their yarn this week, more so than usual. It’s neat to see what people are using. We’ll start by looking at the pics of just yarn and then move on to projects where the yarn is also showcased in the photo:

My Crochet On Instagram

This week I was working on a bunch of stuff that couldn’t be revealed yet for various reasons so there were a lot of images of project sneak peeks and starting stitches.

carpet yarns

Loved this yarn display in the front of a carpet store I walked by

I asked everyone how they choose to start projects in the round. A lot of people like the magic circle but the answers were definitely varied!

    What a fabulous post Kathryn! There is so much crochet goodness to see, my eyes almost can’t believe. Love your work too, it is nice to see your photos on Instagram next to you cute puppies! Thanks for all the work you do!!

    • Kathryn Reply

      Thanks so much for the terrific feedback. It means a lot!

  2. Hi Kathryn

    Thanks so much for including my squares and yarn (lyndapc). It’s brilliant to get a sense of the sharing-inspiration-colour being stitched together around the world – very much appreciate your efforts. I also love seeing how the seasons cross over. Here in Australia, it’s been humid and over 30 degrees celsius for a few weeks…hence lots of squares and lighter projects. Fortunately it’s cooled down a bit, so the nearly finished granny stripe blanket is back on the agenda!

      Thanks Lynda,

      I’m so glad that you’ve been sharing your work. I love seeing it and letting others get a chance to see it as well. I totally agree that it’s so interesting to see what other people are making in different parts of the world!

    Dear Kathryn,

    Thank you so very much for featuring me as “Instagrammer of the Week” – it just could not have made me any happier! I feel so honored – thank you, thank you, thank you! I love your blog and how it indeed connects and inspires so many of us crocheters – simply wonderful! Love, Marianne xx
