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.
My campaign with #CAREKnowsHow is about to come to an end and you could really help me out by visiting the story sharing page today. You’ll find inspiring information there about CARE programs including how pink bed sheets got more women to visit health clinics, fog was turned into drinking water and replacing chickens with ducks improved life in flood zones.
Here are this week’s awesome Instagram shares.
Featured Crochet Item
There were two really powerful crochet images this week that I just loved!
First up is this image from @woolyana who is working with methods of stiffening lace crochet:
And then this bold image from elzavan912 who writes: “Supporting #redmylips2015 for April. If not on the lips, I’ll rock my #crochet pin.”
Featured Crochet Instagrammer
This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is Corinne Petfor AKA @cozamundo. She says right in her IG tagline that she shares photos of crochet, cats and “babyspam” and indeed that’s what you’ll find there with an emphasis on beautiful images of crochet. I love the images where she places crochet work off-center in photos against wooden floors and the images with close-up detail of her great crochet texture worked in deep, vibrant colors. Corinne is a UK-based crafter who also has a Folksy shop. This week she shared:
I hope that everyone who celebrates Easter had a great time yesterday. Let’s recap with the Easter crochet that was shared this week:

Rustic Lace Square
Many people are beginning to make this beautiful crochet square pattern. @rawrustic (who shared the first photo here) says, “Be sure to tag it #rusticlacesquare as initiated by @suregal27. This is truly a gorgeous addictive pattern.”
In addition to the #rusticlacesquare, there was a lot of other lacy crochet in the works this week.

Crochet Mistakes and Problems
This week a lot of people sought support from the community as they experienced the disappointment of running out of yarn mid-project, getting yarn all tangled and other common crochet problems. Although not a mistake, I also included the photos here that were of needing to weave in yarn ends. The work is all beautiful!

@CycYarnCouncil is hosting #StitchAwayStress Month with all kinds of good things in April! This photo was posted by @bhooked but it’s the core image for the campaign. Check out the interview that @craftsanity did with executive director Mary Colucci about the health benefits of crochet and other crafts.
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.
