Each week there are more than 100 photos that people choose to share with the Crochet Concupiscence community through tags on Instagram. Here is an inspirational roundup showing what people are crafting. Learn how to join in on Sunday’s Instagram Crochet posts here.
I do this as 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. It takes me several hours each week to compile these posts. If you like them, you can support Crochet Concupiscence by becoming a sponsor, which also puts your ad in front of more than a quarter million people monthly.
Here are this week’s awesome shares …

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is @_lara_x. Lara describes herself on Instagram as: “Mummy to Harry & Lucy, GF to @swisstoni, Speech and Language Therapy assistant, crafter, crocheter, sewing all from my home in West Sussex.” Her IG feed reflects her love of crochet and sewing, her family life, her eye for colors spotted in the world around her and occasionally her great sense of humor. This week she shared with us:

Not all of the tagged photos from the week make it into the roundup post. For example, any accounts set to private don’t show up here, and when a lot of photos of the same item are shared there may be only one or two shown here. Take a look on Instagram at #crochetsavedmylife and #crochetconcupiscence to see all of the amazing contributions.
