The Best Free Crochet Patterns from Left in Knots
So 2021 was about on par with 2020, huh? I stayed home with my kids (a lot), designed more patterns (some) and have many, many things to be grateful for. I rediscovered my love of house plants this year and that actually reflected in some of my crochet patterns as well. You may see a couple more plant related pieces next year!
I stayed “on brand” for me by not having any particular color scheme, style or type of crochet project. I don’t know, friends. I just can’t land and stay in one creativity lane, but you stick with me and I always appreciate it!
Let’s remember to keep supporting, protecting and loving each other in 2022. I truly appreciate all of you. Without readers and supporters like you, NONE of this would be possible. You are making my dreams come true, and I am endlessly grateful for that. I’ve got more coming for you in 2022. If you want to let me know the kind of patterns you’ll be wanting to see next year head to my Facebook group and tag me in a post about it!
