Do you have a Crochet Bucket List? A list of must make crochet patterns that are so gorgeous you know you will have to make them at some point in your life?
The patterns I am sharing here are on my Bucket List. They have been just waiting for me to get to them. Designs that are absolutely gorgeous and fill me with longing to get them on my hook!
Being a designer and blogger has been a huge blessing for me and I am so happy that I get to have this job! However, meeting design deadlines, working on the tech side, and constant social media posting leaves me little time for “personal happy time crochet”! I am sure many of you know what I mean — whether you are a contract crocheter, craft show maker, tech editor, designer and/or blogger!
And since I spend a prodigious amount of time seeing a lot of other designers’ work of course there are designs I see that absolutely “speak” to me and beg to get on my hook! So here’s hoping I get some personal crochet happy time this upcoming 2019!
I think you will agree these designs deserve to be on anyone’s list! Have you made some of these already? Do you have any favorites? Let me know!
The Secret Paths Shawl by Mijo Crochet is one of those designs that just screams at makers “make me”! This pattern has been one of the hottest patterns on Ravelry since it was released over 2 years ago! A must make for sure!
