For my most recent blog posts on crocheting, click here.
Last winter, I made a knit scarf on a round loom for Bob. It wasn’t lying flat, so Mom showed me how to crochet edging on it. Little did I know that I would become so addicted to crocheting (resulting in this year, the madness of the Twelve Scarves of Xmas). I’m so lucky that I am learning to crochet in the digital age and I can turn to websites and YouTube for help and instruction. Below are some of my favorite crochet links.
Their tagline says it all: crochet, knitting, world domination. And they’ve got it all…reviews, tutorials, patterns. I’ve made their Chroma Crochet purse twice and it is awesome.
RBC is doing an awesome 52 weeks of crochet challenge. The projects are really fun.
Everyone is on Ravelry, and there’s a reason for that. It’s a giant community of other people who love what you love. Join and post your projects, keep track of your yarn stash and connect with others.
I can’t say enough about New Stitch a Day’s Crochet Stitchionary. Video tutorials for every stitch you’ve ever imagined. Wanting to do something different than the same old double crochet? This is your place to go.
KnitPicks is a great source for yarn. But they also have some nice crochet video tutorials, including one on how to read a crochet diagram. Very helpful!
So, that’s a link to my Pinterest crochet board (follow me?). But just a simple Pinterest search will reveal so many project ideas, it’s amazing.
Happy hooking, my friends.
