The Best Crochet Patterns of 2017

Crochet should be inspiring. Crochet should be innovative. And yes, crochet should be addictive. But more than ever this year, we decided crochet should be fun. Thanks to the talented designers for I Like Crochet, 2017 was hands down the best time we’ve ever had creating each issue. Over the course of 6 new issues this year, we explored trends and styles in never-before-seen ways and drew inspiration from top fashion and vintage designs. It seemed nearly impossible to narrow down to just 50 designs to highlight since each design is hand-picked and well-liked by all. So here’s to the new designers, the innovative designers, and the seasoned designers—and all the outstanding designs they created this year. Welcome to I Like Crochet’s best patterns of 2017!
