Crochet is definitely a wonderful form of art that we all know and love. But there are also plenty of other ways to indulge your artistic side! For my birthday a few months ago, I went to The Sound of Music at the =Lyric Opera of Chicago, and I hope to see The Nutcracker at the Joffrey Ballet during the holiday season. Of course, it’s always fun to wander around the Chicago Art Institute and take in all the beautiful pieces of art. For many, simply wandering the aisles of the yarn section of your local craft store can be considered art! Pop culture also presents an opportunity for crochet inspiration; find our favorite pop-culture patterns here !
