instagram vercillo

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. Note that I was offline and out of town the last half of the week so the most recent shares will go into next week’s roundup.

Featured Crochet Item

The single most outstanding crochet photo submission this week was this terrific photo of an artistic flower using natural petals and a crochet center. It’s from babagabaa.

Featured Crochet Instagrammer

queen_babs crochet yarnbomb

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is @queen_babs. I know she was actually the featured IGer not all that long ago and usually I choose someone new each week. However, her posts over the last weeks have really become truly inspirational and I want to encourage you to follower her if you don’t already. She has been sharing her daily crochet squares and her yarn bombing work, often through photos that have inspirational sayings added to them. However, the inspiration goes beyond the photos. Jane has been sharing vignettes of her life, thoughts that she has about health and creativity and yarn bombing and living. Each time I see a post from her, I feel compelled to actually sit and read it instead of just flipping through the photos. Here is what she shared photo-wise with us this week but do visit her and see what else she’s sharing:

Note: 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.

    I love the yellow :-) To my surprise my crochet wallet (krystlewvscrochet) was on your list. So happy! Thanks so much! If it were not for you I would not know who to follow on Instagram. I read your posts, look at the pics and get my phone out. It works! Thanks for all the time you put into this. I appreciate it :-)
