Crochet Art

crochet art olek

Olek is in town (Delhi) for a special project – to “dress up” one of the women night shelters in Sarai Kale Khan with her crochet designs, as part of the second edition of St+Art festival. The untitled crochet canvas for Sarai Kale Khan will be roughly 40 ft X 30ft, and will feature designs inspired by nature – such as butterflies, doilies, hearts and flowers. For this, she will be using up to nine kms of fabric (from shops in old Delhi, and discarded material from Tarun Tahiliani and Manish Arora’s stores), and some yarn.”

amigurumi crochet ebook

Amigurumi pals crochet pattern (bear, bunny, kitty) for sale from Itsy Bitsy Spider who shares: “There aren’t a lot of patterns out there that really encourage crocheters to express themselves — but with my first Amigurumi Pals pattern, I’m hoping to change that. This pattern is an amigurumi “choose-your-own-adventure.” I’ll provide the instructions you need and you choose the way your final project comes out. Make a bear, bunny, or cute kitty and then choose the accessories to give your new friend a one-of-a-kind personality.”
