20 Wonderful and Weird Feats of Crochet By Kate Jenkins

My daughter and I recently took up crochet. And when I say “took up,” it really means we’ve made a very casual attempt at the age-old craft that has yet to go beyond a simple string of loops mixed in with a fair share of tangles. Kate Jenkins we are not. Who is Kate Jenkins you might ask? She is not just a crochet expert but a true artist. This English woman’s work is amazing, inspiring and, also, intimidating. There is no way my little 7-year-old and I will be able to crochet ourselves a bottle of mustard or a shimmery set of sardines. Check out a her knitted genius here:
