When deciding to learn Crochet, I started a list of bloggers to follow.
After many suggestions in various online crochet groups and from friends, my little list grew and grew.
What a great way to launch my new crochet blog, I thought.
So my Top 100 Crochet Blogs post was born 🙂
If you have any favorite bloggers that aren’t on the list, please let me know here or comment below.
Thanks again to everyone who helped me with contributions.
Please enjoy the fantastic Crochet inspiration.
Moogly Blog by Tamara Kelly
The word “moogly” was created by Tamara Kelly’s daughter when she was a toddler. She used it to describe anything wobbly, off-kilter, silly, or teeter-tottery. When Tamara decided to start a mommy blog a few years later, the name Moogly was a good fit! Then, she decided mommy blogging wasn’t right for her, but she kept the blog around because she had a crochet pattern she’d written on there. In 2011, Tamara decided to open a crochet and knit business, and Moogly got stripped down and relaunched to support her commission work.
What We Love: Tamara’s crochet patterns are adorable. She writes patterns for shawls, hats and baby sweaters. There is a library of crochet tutorials both in video and image form that will help you with techniques.
