Crochet in Pink

Sometimes the sweetness of pink crochet just seems to draw us in. Maybe it’s Spring. Maybe it’s the association with babies, tutus or the 1950’s. Here are some crocheted projects, one still “in progress”, that have that pink softness. All are from our readers. We hope they inspire you to maybe create something with crochet that brings in some sweet pink.

Thanks go to Maria, JoyLynn, Janice and everyone else who shares the inspiration that naturally comes in seeing their artistic creativity.

from: Maria Bittner: “Just finished the bonnet & booties to coordinate with the blanket I posted earlier this week. This little set is for my cousin’s soon to arrive twins!”

Maria’s work is always excellent and we’d like to thank her for sharing it with us all at Starting Chain. You can see the set of beautiful blankets she made for her cousin’s twin babies here. She calls the blankets “Pearls and Lace”. The entire set has that look of vintage crochet that never looses its charm.

from: JoyLynn Brenner: “I wanted to share the afghan I’m working on, still in the makings. It’s a granny square Daisy afghan and I adding glass pearl beads in the center of the daisies.”

Love the yellow centers with the small pearls!

from Janice Hilderman: “My African Flower afghan”.

We always love the African Flower pattern, especially in the hexagon motif like Janice has used. The pattern is available from most of the major pattern companies. Some, including Ravelry and Heidi Bears include a tutorial. There are also several online videos on YouTube that provide good instruction on the African Flower in varying forms including hexagon, octagon and square.
