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!

Featured Crochet Instagrammer
This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is Aglaé Laser/ aglaelaser. This French crocheter, knitter and sewist describes herself (in part) in her IG bio as “Serial crocheteuse”. This week she was participating in the granny-a-day challenge, a seven day challenge (described on her blog) for which she completed a crochet flower each day. Visit her on Twitter and Pinterest as well. Her IG feed shares her love of crochet and other crafts, beautiful images of yummy-looking food and some photos of people here and there, too. In addition to these crochet flowers, she shared a crochet wrap with us this week as well.

This week seemed to be a popular week for blankets and other large crochet projects made with crochet granny squares and other crochet square motifs:

My Crochet On Instagram
This week I shared several granny square crochet blankets that I sent off for donation to the World’s Largest Stocking / Children of Fallen Patriots charity.
I also shared crocodile stitch crochet images related to my posts on the crocodile stitch tutorial, crocodile stitch infinity scarf free pattern and how much I love the reverse side of this stitch!
I shared two different flower art projects: a collaborative piece my mom and I sent off to Prudence Mapstone’s art project and a piece I put together using WIPs I hadn’t made into anything, yet.

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.
