Lytter Idyl If modern crochet were in the dictionary, this blog would be a perfect example of it. I would learn Danish just to be able to read her patterns. I want to make every. single. one. Ps. the egg is a free pattern!
By Haafner This blanket was the reason I decided to take the plunge and start my first crochet blanket. Not concidentally, my first project was a bobble blanket (not this specific one, but very similar).
PESCNO If you've been in search of modern Tunisian crochet patterns (that are free!) this is the blog for you. You'll need use Google Translate to read it in English, but like I said in the intro - it's worth it, 'cause the the blanket above is a free pattern.
One Sheepish Girl Meredith makes crochet look fabulous, and there is a decent number of free patterns (the crochet scissor grip above is one of them). She also has a book with really cool patterns, such as the Lomo camera bag.
These blogs will seriously make you want to begin crocheting. Some of them were the reason I learned to crochet. I could spend hours browsing through their posts, and dreaming about all the crochet projects I would make. I should point out that most of them are not in English, but that's nothing that Google Translate cannot fix! Trust me, they are worth the linguistic confusion.
