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:
Each of these words means crochet!
Croche – french ganchillo – spanish Haken – german virka – swedish krose – turkish hækle – danish
These are a few of my favourite hashtags at the moment!
Some for the toymakers 🙂
So, next time you’re over on Instagram, give your posts some pazzazz with a new hashtag & don’t forget to come say hi to me
