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’m currently being sponsored by #CAREKnowsHow, a storytelling campaign that helps empower women in the world’s poorest nations. It helps me out if you just take a moment to click through to their storytelling page and check it out. It’s not a scam and you aren’t required to do anything once you get there!
Here are this week’s awesome shares.
Featured Crochet Item
The single most outstanding crochet photo submission this week was this terrific flower blanket by traceytodhunter. She shared: “Found this photo of the crochet blanket my Dad made in the 1970’s, every time I look at it I’m reminded of things he made us! I have never managed to make anything that compares to the love he put in every stitch.” Amazing.
Featured Crochet Instagrammer
This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is Hannah of hanrosieg. Her short-and-sweet IG tagline says it all: “colourful stuff and pretty things”. Hannah mostly shares the many different cute things she makes in crochet. She also shares a variety of photos of other crafts and inspiring images she spots around and about. It’s always a joy to pop over to her page and take a look. Here’s what she shared this week:
The animals come from designs in Edward’s Menagerie
Colorful Crochet Blankets
Perhaps inspired by the bright colors of spring, so many people are working on very colorful beautiful crochet blankets right now! Here they are (with the exception of the ripples, which you’ll find in their own category below). See more crochet blankets on Pinterest.

My Crochet On Instagram
I was visiting my hometown in Tucson this week, where I was checking out my mom’s crochet art in a gallery exhibit and visiting a bunch of thrift stores where there was also a lot of crochet!

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.
