5 Crochet Blogs I Really Admire
Some bloggers just do it right. And these five rock their crochet blogs with such gusto and panache and general good-heartedness, I just couldn’t help but give them a shout-out. So let’s all raise a hook to these five fine entrepreneurs in our crochet community! Here’s to you all for helping craft a creative, generous (free crochet patterns!), and mutually beneficial online “neighborhood” as you promote your businesses by doing what you love. Without further ado, and in no particular order, here is a list of five of what I consider to be the best crochet blogs:
What is The Lindsey Life all about? Well, in her own words, it “focuses on three guiding principles: constantly create, overcome obstacles, live and laugh.” Principles to live by, that’s for sure! Lindsey’s kind and positive nature infuses her whole site and all her free crochet patterns with a genuine warmth that complements her multi-faceted creativity. If only all websites were as enjoyable to visit!
MJ’s Off the Hook Designs is an awesome example of how to make your hobby into a supremely successful business. Michelle is a busy mom of four kiddos who turned her Nan’s teachings and love of yarn into a career. Her blog is the epitome of high style, yet it remains approachable with free crochet patterns that are as stunning as they are free!
Maki, the talented and positive-energy-filled woman behind Maki Crochet Patterns, designs and hooks some of the most stunning crochet projects in the world. And I say that to be accurate rather than hyperbolic because Maki is from and currently resides in a small town on the Croatian coast. Thank goodness for the internet that enables our global crochet community to enjoy her beautiful, free crochet patterns!
Cosy Crochet is another member of our global crochet community. From her home in England, Vicky dreams up hyper-creative and just down right fun designs! From blankets to baby play mats to under-the-sea dioramas of clam shells and mermaids, Vicky’s work is an inspirational example of why we all started hooking in the first place: for the fun of it!
The brains behind Two Hearts Crochet is Alex, a self-described “Crochet Guru” and “Nerd Queen” who lets her “nerd flag fly” with all sorts of wonderful and unique “crochet geekery”! That self-description is satisfyingly spot on! One word for ya: “graphghans.” 🙂 Alex’s mission is to spread the love through crochet and of crochet, and with Two Hearts reaching over 170 countries, I’d say she’s accomplishing her worthy goals!
