What are Your 2021 Crochet Resolutions?
Two crocheted Unicorns - Sparkles the Crocheted Unicorn Pattern by crochet.com

We made it to the end of 2020, everyone! We all deserve a big cheer! As we look back over this momentous year we’re also looking forward to 2021 and what our crafty goals will be in the coming months. I asked everyone on the WeCrochet team about their crafting resolutions for 2021 and this is what they said:

Regan, Photographer:

I still have a goal in mind to someday release a pattern πŸ™‚ Or at least write up the Alpine Alpaca sweater. Oh, also to practice/learn mosaic crochet and Tunisian crochet.

Zoey, Graphic Designer:

My 2021 crochet resolutions goal(s) is to finish my first garment piece: Faux Fade Wrap. My goal overall is to also graduate from a “beginner” to an “intermediate” level of crochet.

I also would like to learn how to cross-stitch!

Sara, Brand Director:

Can my resolution be to do whatever is needed to get Regan to write the patterns for his amazing projects? Partly joking, but mostly serious. Whatever help you need or questions you have, Regan!

My resolution:
My goal for 2021 is to experiment with more yarns in different weights and fiber types. When I look back at my projects over the years, I realize I make a project I really like with a certain kind of yarn and then just keep making variations of that same project. I spent all of 2019 making lace garments with Curio #10, most of 2020 was colorwork with Palette, 2021 is my year to do a better job mixing it up!

Here are some of Sara’s 2020 Palette sweaters:

Camden, Magazine Director:

I want to finish my Bobble Diamonds Throw and start on one of the next projects I have lined up (one of the following: Winter Mosaic Pillow, Pulmu Pullover, Macchiato Poncho, or Macchiato Sweater). Also, it would be great if I could finally make the Unicorn Softie that Amelia has been asking about since she saw a photo (which would mean making the Deep Sea Creature that Javi wants).Β 

Producer Sarah, Digital Content Creator:

In 2021 I’m hoping to expand knowledge and skills with new crochet stitches. I’d love to learn C2C. I’m also hoping to try a crochet garment. I’ll probably start with a small, kid-sized crochet garment.

Katelyn, Outreach Coordinator:

Typically I don’t make resolutions but this year, with everything going on in 2020, I think it is a good year to try. Rather than picking a new stitch or project that I want to do, my resolution is to go through all of my WIPs. It is time to get rid of any WIP that isn’t bringing me joy anymore! I can use the yarn for something else rather than having it in a bag, sometimes for years!

Elise, Purchasing:

Make a long sleeve, color work sweater. I have knit like 7 knit sweaters I’ve made during quarantine, I should make a crochet one.

Heather, Marketing Coordinator

Last year I made a goal to design a crochet pattern, and I designed two! This year, I want to design a garment pattern. I also want to figure out a yarn organization system that works for me (because boxes and bags are NOT cutting it!)

The first pattern I designed in 2020 was the Tuff Puff Rainbow Wall Hanging.

Now it’s YOUR turn! What are your crafty new years’ resolutions? Share them in the comments.

    My resolution is going to be: do not buy yarn that isn’t betrothed to a specific project/purpose. I did pretty well with this last year until fall yarn collections hit, then it all fell to pieces.

      Okay, I LOVE the phrase “do not buy yarn that isn’t betrothed to a specific project/purpose.”

    To crochet at least 2 items every month, participate & complete at least 1 CAL, learn Tunisian Crochet & complete a block once I learn a stitch to make an afghan/throw and learn at least 5 new crochet stitches.

      Those all sound like a ton of fun.

    My resolution is to do more Tunisian crochet.

      Yay! Can’t wait to see what you make!

    I’m excited to try amigurumi. I also would love to make a sweater – though that one has been a resolution for a long time. Maybe 2021 is the year!

      You can do it!!

    I have 2. One is to finish the blanket I have been working on for my husband. It’s 2 full Blue Mountain Samplers of Mighty Stitch, so its a monster. The second is to use the Dishie to work through the 52 Weeks of Washcloths that is sitting on my shelf πŸ™‚

      Those sound like achievable goals, Dana!
