Last week we looked at kitchen crochet patterns, which are great for gift giving. Sometimes it’s nice to just enjoy crafty eye candy to get inspiration so today’s roundup isn’t patterns but just more beautiful images of lovely crochet for the kitchen including crochet potholders, crochet coasters and more. If you see an @name, then you’ll find the maker on Instagram.

    Is there a way to find these patterns? i click on designer name – it leads to another page from Crochet Concupiscence . If I click on pictures, I get the same….some of these patterns are SO inviting, and I’d like to do some for Christmas gifts…..but can’t find patterns!

      In posts like this that are just designed for inspiration, there aren’t patterns available that I’m aware of. The @name of the maker is an Instagram name so you can connect with that person to ask about the pattern they might have used. Hope that helps!
