(Some of) My Favorite Crochet Bloggers


Pin HERE or with the image above. 

This was a difficult list to compile. I have so many crochet bloggers who have inspired me and am always adding new ones to the list. If I were to name all of them, it would take me days. With that in mind, I decided to tell you about eight of them, in no particular order. Now we can ooh and awe and pin all their patterns together. 

Click on the name of the designer to visit their blog. 

1. Tamara Kelly of Moogly. Tamara releases a new pattern almost every week, complete with left and right-hand video tutorials and charts. She covers almost everything crochet and organizes a yearlong CAL running for its 5th year in a row. She's a super crochet lady for sure. 



2. Sarah Zimmerman of Repeat Crafter Me. Sarah has a unique way of writing patterns that just makes them so much easier to understand. She has lots of patterns, particularly colorwork ones, all of which are lovely. Always well written, always beautiful, and often with video/photo tutorials. 





3. Stephanie Lau of All about Ami. Stephanie creates amazing amigurumi and adult garments. She has some of the best photo tutorials I've ever seen, managing to simplify even the most complicated of stitches. She also has a few knit patterns that are equally amazing. 



4. Lucy of Attic24. So much color. So many patterns. So much talent. Lucy takes color to places I wish I were daring enough to go. Whenever I visit her site or social media, I come away so inspired and ready to create. If you're in need of some creative eye candy, she's the place to go!


5. Kali Dahle of The Friendly Red Fox. Kali has many amazing patterns but some of my favorites are her Friendly Doll series. They're all so beautiful it's difficult to choose a favorite! She also runs a really great crochet group on Facebook, The Friendly Crochet Club. 


6. Tonya of Nana's Crafty Home. Tonya is someone I very recently discovered but am so glad I did! She has lovely patterns I can't wait to make and several video tutorials. We also happen to have a similar taste in color. She proves that you don't have to be a huge designer to produce great content. 

7. Bethany of Whistle and Ivy. Bethany has seriously changed my colorwork crochet game. She has such a great way of explaining color changes and her patterns were the first I had success with. She uses both charts and written instructions for a perfect crochet experience. 

8. Alexis Middleton of Persia Lou. Although Alexis has a lot of non-crochet crafts, I definitely think her crochet patterns are top notch. They're so modern and colorful, especially her crocheted jewelry. She also does a lot of Facebook Live videos that you should definitely check out.

And there you have it! There are so many more talented crochet bloggers out there; I wish I could feature them all. I plan on making a part two very soon so let me know about some of your favorite bloggers in the comments.

Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Scrubbie

I haven't posted anything in a long time but I'm finally back with a simple flower scrubbie. It's a mere three rounds, requires little counting, and takes about ten minutes to make. You can make a bunch in a single sitting, making them perfect for Croflixing (Crochet+Netflix). They're also versatile-- I've been using mine as face scrubbies but they would be just as good in the kitchen. 

I included some round-by-round photos to help with construction. It's such an easy, straightforward pattern it probably doesn't need a photo tutorial but now it's got one anyway. I've been working on better photos and hope to eventually take good photos myself.  I don't know if I'm improved much but I certainly have been having fun. 



But enough about photos. Let get right into the pattern.

Abigail Flip-flop Doll ~ Free Crochet Pattern

I wanted to make something for my younger sister's birthday but didn't stop to think about the particulars until less than two days before. I needed something quick that required minimal stuffing. Enter Abigail.

She's no ordinary doll. Flip her dress over her head and you have a tulip-like flower. Flip the flower part back down over the stem and she's a pretty princess again. Neat, right?




Despite her cool turns-into-a-flower trick, the construction isn't all that difficult.  Both her head and dress are made in one piece, with some back loops only definition at the waist. The arms, flower stem, and leaf are made separately and stitched on afterward. Her hair is made by making a pink cap with two small pompoms stitched to it and then the whole thing is sewn to the head. If you'd rather buy pompoms than make them, that's fine too.(I owe a special thank-you to my brother Jack for once again working his pompom wizardry. I suffer from an inability to make pompoms s…
