The 10 Types of Crocheters
Everyone has their own individual crochet style and it’s what makes you, and your projects, unique! Whether you’re an amigurumi artist or like to try a bit of everything (and have the WIPs to prove it!), can you spot yourself in our top ten crocheters below?
Somehow your squares have more than four corners and your blankets seem to weave in and out at the edges. Just tell everyone you’re doing freeform crochet and they’re bound to be impressed!
Pineapple, doll, unicorn – there’s no character your talented hook can’t sculpt with your nimble skills at amigurumi (sometimes we even struggle just to say it).
The stash addict
Big stash? It’s inevitable really! What people don’t understand is that you need one ball of each colour, and one of each weight, oh and that shiny new one over there. And perhaps just one more…
Granny square guru
From its humble beginnings to the most elaborate forms, you have well and truly mastered the granny square. Blankets, bags, tops, there’s nothing you can’t create with a granny square!
The WIP crocheter
You’re very good at starting new projects, perhaps too good if the wake of WIPs you leave behind is any indication. You could finish that blanket you started last year, or you could start hooking that fab new CAL everyone’s talking about.
Last minute gift? No problem, you’ve got three baby blankets you planned for just such an emergency. Now did they want stripes, ombre or the super cute one with the matching bunny?
From playing with colour like an artist with a palette, to orchestrating projects without a score in sight, you’re all about experimenting and trying something new. Who needs a pattern anyway?
Chevrons, hexies or tapestry crochet? Most of us are struggling to keep up with what’s hot and what’s not. Luckily, we can see what’s fresh off your hook and ooh and aah in admiration.
The CAL gal (or guy)
Crochet is at its best when it’s fun and social and a CAL (Crochet-A-Long) is the perfect opportunity to get involved. You’ve ordered your yarn, discussed tactics in the online forums and you’re ready to go!
The crochet commuter
You’ve always got a project in the works, and you’re always on the go! At work, on the train, even outdoors at the park, you’ll be found hook in hand, happily working away.
