Stylecraft reveals three new blogstars
By Mark Hayhurst 10 Jul 2017
Stylecraft’s Blogstars have been a huge hit with knitters and crocheters all over the world.
Not ones to rest on their laurels the team has been actively scouring the internet to find the most exciting bloggers to bring in to the fold, and is now delighted to reveal the latest recruits – Michelle Westlund and Anne Scheuler from Crochet Between Worlds and Polly Plum from Every Trick On The hook.
Michelle and Anne met in 2002, when Michelle was on a Rotary Youth Exchange in Anne’s hometown of Weyhe, Germany. They became firm friends almost immediately! Anne spent a year living with Michelle’s family in Australia in 2008-2009 while studying at university, and their shared love of crochet was kindled during a long, hot Sydney summer. They had to keep this passion going, and so started the Crochet Between Worlds blog! As well as patterns, tutorials, projects, chatting and occasional recipes, you can also find The Adventures of Captain Poprocks at Crochet Between Worlds! The Captain is a tiny rainbow happypotamus who travels the world, seeking adventure and cake.
At about 12 years of age Polly Plum was taught to crochet and read crochet patterns by her mother. Polly made a few things but didn’t pick up her hook too much over her teenage years. Over a decade later, she found herself living in a new place and quite bored, so she purchased a couple hooks, some yarn, and a book of patterns. At about the same time a social media revolution was in full swing and Polly joined some online crochet groups. The inspiration and support she found there motivated her to finally complete the projects she loved to start, but would usually abandon. It wasn’t long until she discovered afghan blocks and their unending variations. As you can see Polly has perfected her craft and now spends most of her time crocheting and making her art into patterns to share with the world. She thrives off the challenge of finding new ways to combine and place stitches and, even more challenging, how to write them into a usable pattern. She established her blog, Every Trick on the Hook, to complement her patterns with tutorials, tips, and tricks. You may remember her highly successful Lotus Moon Tiles CAL last year which seemed to be on everyone’s hooks.
