Featured Crochet Instagrammer

elisabethandree featured crochet instagrammer

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is elisabethandree who explains “these are my first names, but everybody calls me Andrée.” She and I first met (online) years ago when I interviewed her to be in my book Crochet Saved My Life. Since then I’ve followed her blog and now her Instagram posts and always love to see what she’s up to. Her IG tag succinctly describes her as “Dutch, vegetarian, crochet & yarn addict” and if you check the About page of her blog you’ll learn a lot more about her interests and creativity. You can also find her on Ravelry and Pinterest. What I love most about her crochet is the lovely, bright colors she chooses. She’s the first person I saw use neons in a way that I really loved in crochet. I’m always inspired by what she makes. This week she shared:

My Crochet On Instagram

This week I’ve been really focused on enjoying meditative crochet, working mostly on one-skein granny squares. I’m using the scraps left over from each skein to create a double-stranded scrap yarn crochet granny square. Other than that I did a little basketweave crochet and shared a #latergram from the Womankraft art gallery in Tucson. I also did several #regram shares of favorite crocheter’s images, which I haven’t included here but you can find them in my IG feed.

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.

    Hi Kathryn,
    What a wonderful collection of so many beautiful crochet works and all those colors! I saw a little house which I love! But let me thank you for putting me in the spotlight and the kind things you write about my crochet stitches, I really feel flattered especially because they come from you!
    Wish you a great new week! I will keep following your activities! Thanks again:)

      Always love seeing what you’re making and so happy to be able to feature it so others can see it as well!

  2. I don’t know how you do all this! Every week you present us with such a cornucopia of beautiful designs from all over!
    Thank you every so much for your efforts! I know this isn’t a five minute job for you. Your work IS appreciated.
    So much inspiration! If I only had enough hours in the day to make all the hooky things that tempt me here!

      Thanks for recognizing the work. It does take time but I love being able to share in this way!

  3. I love the way you categorize the IG phots Kathryn!
    And there is always something new and interesting in your IG post that I want to try.
    Thanks for including my photos .
