Crochet favorites

Standard

Hello to all of you!

I have been thinking about making this post for a whole now. You will get to know my favourite places for patterns and inspirations. Let me list few websites where you can get free patterns.
yarnspirations
redheart
drops design
all free crochet

These are my favourite websites for free patterns. I love downloading patterns, printing them out and sorting them in my ring binders by categories.

I also enjoy browsing many blogs. Blogs where I can get inspirations, tips and lovely patterns as well. Some of my favourite include
hopeful honey
moogly blog
repeat crafter me
little monkeys crochet

It is amazing seeing that crochet is growing in popularity and that so many young people share the same passion. We can all share experiences and our patterns.

I am currently in process of making a Heidi Bears African flower hippo amigurumi. I will share the outcome and the page where you can find the pattern in another post.

If you also like the above pages as well as me, please let me know what is your favourite section/pattern

With Love, Dorota

Welcome to my blog

Standard

Hello everybody, and thank you for stopping by.

I will start by directing you to “about me” page if you want to know more about me as a person. Here in the first post I would like to talk a little about what made me start the blog and what is going to be posted on it.

I am currently on a high run with my crochet skills. I am self learner and everything I know I learned by watching others do it, mainly on YouTube. I slowly started to learn how to read written instructions and how to read diagrams. It didn’t take as long as I was worried it will. I also learned (from mistakes) the importance of appropriate hook size and yarn weight.

I am mostly enjoying making hats, scarves, blankets and amigurumi. Oh! I also can’t forget about how much pleasure I get from making baby clothes. It’s just so adorable.

Since this Christmas my lovely boyfriend got me a set of 19 knit pro waves crochet hooks, which I totally love and adore, and he also got me a brand new tablet, I have decided to boost my crochet life. My tablet is going to be mainly used for crochet related stuff. Th st is: my crochet facebook (dorota crochet), my crochet Twitter, instagram, pintrest, blog and also Etsy.

My etsy shop is open for a long time however I haven’t really paid any attention to it and it wasn’t successful. Surprise surprise, I am gonna get into it after new year to make it a success.

Hopefully this tells you a little abou my crochet life. Please message me if you have any questions or requests.

With Love, Dorota
