What a beautiful journey we’ve been on, looking at crochet in 2016. We have reviewed crochet art, books, designers, fashion and health. But now we are at the part most people really want to check out: CROCHET PATTERNS.
There are so many different occasions that would be perfect for crocheting star motifs. Christmas immediately comes to mind, of course, but stars work for nurseries, birthdays, Fourth of July and “just because”. Here are more than 20 star crochet patterns, including simple star motif appliqués and detailed star-rich projects.
Back in the spring, when I interviewed designer Lena Skvagerson about the Annie’s Signature Summer Love Collection of knit and crochet patterns, I asked her if there would be future seasons to come. She responded, “We are hoping the first collection is welcomed by our customers, and with our full hopes in this, we are right now in the first phase of planning a follow up fall collection.” And here we are, headed into fall, with a brand new collection launching today: The Autumn Bliss Collection.
We have been looking recently at crochet dream catchers. When you make a dreamcatcher, you often incorporate feathers into the design, particularly into the tassels that hang from the bottom of the piece. It is always fun to make a mixed media piece, but it might be even more fun to crochet your own feathers to add to your dream catcher. These crochet feather patterns and tutorials can guide you.
I recently came across a new crochet cactus pattern by Frank&Olive and had to share.
Jessie at Home is one of my favorite blog sponsors in large part because she creates terrific (often free) crochet patterns that I’m authentically happy to share with others.
I’ve been looking back at my earliest link love crochet posts from several years ago when I didn’t even include photos in the roundups. I noticed that there are a lot of great crochet patterns buried in those links, so I decided to pull some of those out for us to take a look at today.
