The Most Popular Crochet Patterns
Kathryn Vercillo, aka the Crochetblogger, recently put together a list on her blog, Crochet Concupiscence, of the 10 most popular crochet patterns to buy online plus 16 more people love. I have to say my fellow crocheters have very good taste. The assembled patterns are fun, innovative, and beautiful.
Of course, two of my favorites are patterns published in Interweave Crochet. The first is the Dalia Shawl by Lisa Naskrent. This exquisite shawl is a phenomenal representation of crocheted lace. And after you finish the first ten rows of the pattern, the four-row repeat is easily memorized.
And any list of the most popular patterns would have to include Kathy Merrick's Babette Blanket. First published in the spring of 2006, this modern crochet baby blanket has been one of our most popular. The pattern is easy, and the finished blanket is a beautiful work of color art. I have seen Babette Blankets in pastels, neons, neutrals, and even transformed into garments.
