(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.

Lucy's Kimono ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Believe it or not, I started this in June. I thought it would be a good early-summer-so-sometimes-it's-chilly-at-night piece. But summer came and went and it still never got finished. Then I thought it would be a good transitioning-into-fall piece. But here it is! If you're wondering why that's because this Kimono is over 12,300 stitches and made with almost 1500 yards of yarn. You read that right.  Fifteen-hundred yards.  So I feel slightly vindicated in this delay. 

I considered waiting for a more seasonable time to release this pattern but decided against it. I've worn it quite a few times and always get tons of sweet compliments. I hope you enjoy it! 

Before we get into the pattern, let's talk about the Diamond Stitch. 

Although the repeat is 8 rows, those rows repeat themselves so it's essentially made up of 5 rows. The repeat is a, b, c, d, e, d, c, b, a. In the back panel, this is rows, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.  Both of the front panels begin with d, so t…

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.

Free Crochet Pattern: Bubblegum Hat

It's been basically forever since I posted a pattern. Part of that is because I've been busy, part of it is because photography is not my strong point. In terms of skill, I've got nothing and in terms of equipment, all I have is a crappy phone camera. But nonetheless, I still wanted to share one of (there are more coming) of my latest projects: The Bubblegum Hat. 

It's a high-textured, top-down hat made with lots of love. And math. I ripped out round 6 more times than I can count but I'm pleased to say it's finally perfect. And I love it. Check out the closeup of the texture:

Isn't it lovely? 
Because of the math involved, the Bubblegum Hat currently only comes in one size-- woman's medium/large. If you're interested in more sizes, let me know. I'd be happy to make a few more sizes.

See what I mean by crappy photography? Ugh, and the seam's facing out. Oh well. I've spent too many hours fighting photos and editing and slow internet. 

This pat…
