It’s time to resume the weekly Instagram shares. Thank you to all of the people who use the #crochetconcupiscence and #crochetsavedmylife tags each week to share their beautiful crochet work with us. Learn more here.

Featured Crochet Instagrammer

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is Robyn of crochetgirl99. I’ve highlighted her individual photos here before because she has both excellent crochet talent and terrific photography skills. Robyn is an Australian crafter who absolutely loves to crochet. Her photos often feature beautiful landscapes and nature in the background but her colorful crochet work is always front and center. Here’s what she shared with us recently.

My Week on Instagram

I’ve mostly been working on my own crochet Mandalas for Marinke, which I’m working in ribbon yarn and sparkly novelty yarn. I’ve also been sharing the mandala contributions I’m receiving for the project, which you can see on Instagram but also get the details of here. And I shared a few photos for the tutorials I’ve done published elsewhere around the web this week.
