Vibrance in Crochet: February 19

Wow! There have been some great pieces of crochet recently shared with our crochet community at Starting Chain! Here are just a few we’ve selected to feature this morning. All are vibrant and alive with happy color!

from Joyce Wells: “Here’s a vibrant colors afghan I made several years ago. Also made a smaller version for Project Linus.

We love Joyce’s work! The simple squares in the middle with circles inside give a very modern “pop” to the traditional grannies on the side. Her use of color, especially that wonderful turquoise is lively. Notice, too, how each border uses differing colors.

We love Project Linus, too! The mission of the non-profit is to provide homemade blankets for children in need. Blankets, often crocheted, go to seriously ill children and those affected by disasters or other trauma. The organization, founded in 1998, has chapters in all 50 states in the US and has delivered over 5,000,000 blankets. You can learn more about their work, and how you could donate a blanket, at https://www.projectlinus.org.

This beauty was made byAnn Robinson in the United Kingdom. We love it! Again, it has a modern feel, is bright and energetic!

from: Linda Kosakowski: “My Funky C2C Afghan”

That bright pink and yellow just refuse to let anyone be anything but happy! “C2C” stands for “corner to corner” crochet. There are a number of patterns online and videos on YouTube. One pattern, by Catherine Watson, is at RedHeart. A companion video is here.

from: Norcka Toro Gotay: “I had some yarn left over from different projects so I made this for my niece’s new baby girl.”

Aren’t these colors wonderful!

Thanks to Norcka, Linda, Ann and Joyce for sharing these bright and vibrant works of crochet with all of us. Yarn Over!
