It’s the time of the week when we take a look at what people are sharing in crochet using the #crochetconcupiscence, #crochetsavedmylife and #hooktoheal hashtags. You are always welcome to use these hashtags on any crochet photos on Instagram for a chance to be featured here. Follow me on Instagram.

Keep This Going With Just $2 / Month

crochet concupiscence patreon

I love doing these huge roundups, showcasing the work of the amazing people who crochet, sharing trends and tips from the community, finding ways to connect one crafter to another. However, Crochet Concupiscence takes up the hours of a full-time job and I’m seeking ways to keep it sustainable. If you believe in what I do, you can keep it going by making a monthly contribution through Patreon. Even just $2 per month can make a huge, huge difference in keeping this going. Contribute here.

NOTE: Want to know who made a particular item in this roundup? Right click and “open image in new tab”. Look at the URL that opens. There will be a description of the item that begins with the name of the maker. Find that maker on Instagram using that name. So for example, if you right click on the image that is below this one (the one by gigididthis), you’ll open it to a URL that reads: … You can see from the URL that this photo is of “crochet pocket prayer shawls” by gigididthis. You would find her at That’s how you can find and follow the makers here that inspire you.

Want to Help Write a Pattern?

Gigididthis has been crocheting these beautiful little pocket prayer shawls. She’d love to collaborate with someone who can help her write up the pattern, which she says is fairly simple but pattern writing is new to her. Connect with her on IG.

Featured Instagrammer

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is the beautiful and talented Canadian crafter Ryane of olivesandpickles. She is especially known for her amazing crochet hexie blankets that have stunning color palettes. Her eye for the layout of color is just genius. Ryane has an Etsy shop, where she shares,

Oliveandpickles started with a desire to keep a tradition alive, both my granny and great grandmother created beautiful knit and crocheted baby blankets for each of their grand children. I received one from each of them when my daughter was born. Sadly they both passed and I realized that a handmade blanket would never be created for my brother or sisters possible children, I sat down and learned to crochet right then and there.

This week she shared with us:

I also wanted to point your attention to a new hashtag today that’s been started in our community. The account and hashtag are both FlashYourCraftStash. It’s an invitation to share beautiful photos of your yarn and other craft stash items. It’s also a great source of inspiration for finding out how other people organize and photograph their yarn-y goodness. It was launched by Nat of Little Cosy Things, who is one of the moderators of @craftastherapy; she had used the idea as her weekly theme there and was so inspired by it that she decided to create this account.

Inspired by this, let’s share some yarn photos from the community:
