Help! I’ve Fallen Down The Crochet Rabbit Hole.

I don’t  really need help. I am loving my return to crochet. I’ve been seeing the Grannystripe hashtag on Instagram for a minute now. Last night, I asked Hipppiemommy ( a knitter I follow) if there was a pattern for this #grannystripe blanket. She directed me to Attic24 for the free pattern.

And.. that did it. The first thing I see is the Moorland Blanket Crochet Along (CAL) There is a photo of a beautiful landscape and another of a beautiful blanket. Did I say beautiful enough? I came for the grannystripe blanket, move along.

I clicked on the grannystripe link and the bright, beautiful colors of crochet dragged me down the rabbit hole. The warmth of familiarity gave me the tingles. My Mother taught my sisters and I to crochet as children. She made doilies with crochet thread and teeny, tiny steel needles. I watched in awe. I thought everything my Mother did was wonderful. As for me, I loved making tams for the kids (boys) in my elementary school.

I returned to crochet about 5 years ago. Then I was bitten by the knitting bug. I still love to crochet and I am particularly partial to granny squares. Go for a stroll and visit Attic24. I bet you will not be able to resist. Happy knitting and crocheting. Find the patterns below.

  1. My Mother was an avid crocheter and I have several of her creations which she made for me. I only learned to crochet and knit after she passed but I now understand the passion she had for yarn and I go down that rabbit hole so often too! Seeing so many great patterns (for FREE!) on the world wide web doesn’t help our addiction; does it?! 🙂

    1. I absolutely love hearing someone else remembering their Mother knitting or crocheting. I try to do my part by teaching the young people in my life. I also agree that the resources are never ending. The internet is s beautiful thing. ❤
