Crochet in the world’s words.

If you’ve been over to Instagram lately, you’ll notice there’s dozens of hashtags that crocheters use. Hashtags (#) are how people online distinguish themselves and their makes. It’s one of those ‘languages’ that’s developed in the technological age, along with emojis.  I can sit here in Northumberland & using a hashtag, connect with a fellow crocheter in Norway or even Australia!

Whether you’re a Jack/Jill of all trades or you make only amigurumi, hashtags help you find your tribe.

If you fancy tagging your work with new labels, here’s some to consider:

  1. Neat! Thanks for posting this – I’m terrible at Instagram and Twitter. I always forget to even look at them most of the time. And I had no idea what to # so I would just do #crochet (when I remember that is) and be done with it. This is very helpful! 😀
