This is the next post for the Endangered Animal Crochet Project, through which I hope to raise awareness about endangered animals and offer you ways to do the same. There will sadly be several different posts for the apes since so many of them are endangered; we will begin today with the orangutan. Learn a little more about the animal here and check out the cute orangutan crochet patterns I’ve collected.
This post is part of the Endangered Crochet Animals series. Learn about two endangered species of leopard: Amur Leopard and Snow Leopard. Plus check out 25 leopard-inspired crochet patterns, including amigurumi leopards, animal hats, and leopard print accessories.
There are links here to more than 75 terrific crochet tutorials from 2015. Learn crochet basics, advanced stitch patterns, new techniques, and more. Plus explore some basic crochet projects and even some ideas in other crafts.
A little while back, one of this blog’s readers, Flo, was in the midst of working on the Sophie’s Universe crochet project and shared some of her mid-project thoughts with us in a post that I did over on About.com Crochet. She’s since completed the popular crochet project and is back with an update and some tips.
I learned to crochet when I was a child but didn’t really do much with it until I was in my late 20s. I was going through a battle with depression and there wasn’t a whole lot that I had energy for but I remembered that I liked to crochet when I was young so I decided to learn again. I began with making basic scarves and blankets but then began to create a variety of art in crochet. I love that this is a form of self-expression that I can embrace even though I’m not skilled at arts like drawing, painting or sculpting!
It has just come to my attention that at least one person is disappointed with the delay in Hook to Heal’s publication so I wanted to publish another update for you in case it’s something that you’ve been wondering about.
The period for submissions is now complete. I’m thrilled to be a part of it with a submission of my own.
