On the weekends, I’m inviting some of my crochet, knitting, and crafty friends for a takeover of my Instagram account so they can share their talents with you. Since you can’t easily share links on Instagram, afterwords, I’ll share a roundup including links to all the patterns and projects featured in the takeover. So, are you ready for this week’s #undergroundcraftertakeover roundup?

Megan is the blogger and designer at Left in Knots where she publishes free crochet patterns, video tutorials, and tips about saving money on yarn. She enjoys playing with color and her favorite patterns to write are any that are practical and functional. Megan is an avid “trier of new yarns” and may have a few too many skeins stashed around the house for a rainy day. You can find her patterns on Ravlery as leftinknots and on her blog.
Megan says, “I love practical patterns, and practical patterns can sometimes be a lot of fun! My Crochet Water Balloon pattern is fast, eco-friendly, latex-free and the finished product is just a blast to play with! And the new Bernat Blanket Stripes is perfect for making a set of these! Check out my blog for a brand new video tutorial that I made to go along with this free pattern.”
Megan says, “This spring-y piece converts from scarf to wrap and uses only one cake of Caron Cakes yarn! Add tassels to make it extra chic. I hold giveaways on my blog every month, and next week you can visit my blog for a chance to win the yarn and hook to make this pattern! Follow me on social media or sign up for my newsletter to make sure you don’t miss it!” You can get the free crochet pattern for the Strawberry Patch Convertible Scarf here.
Megan says, “This baby blanket uses a variation of the bean stitch called the mini-bean or baby bean stitch to produce all that gorgeous texture! And guess what? I have a video tutorial to get you started with this project if you need it!” Get the free crochet pattern and video tutorial for the Baby Bean Baby Blanket here.
Megan says, “Make this free crochet pattern to keep your toddlers safe and warm in their car seat in the winter! A great solution for avoiding the big, puffy coats. Summer is just starting but winter will inevitably come back.” Get the free crochet pattern for the Car Seat Cloak here.
Megan says, “Made with Loops and Threads Charisma, the Fallen Arrows Blanket was the CAL on my blog last winter. Now you can find the free pattern, video tutorials and all other resources on my blog!”
Megan says, “Summertime is a great time for smaller crochet projects and it is also baby shower season! Make the Stuff and Spill Fish Bowl as a special toy for your next baby gift. You can find all of my free Stuff and Spill toy patterns on my blog here.”
Megan says, “I have a set of patterns on my blog which are what I call my “crochet basics” patterns. They are simple, unembellished patterns perfect for learning, teaching, gifting and selling. They are a great ‘blank canvas’ and easy to personalize with colors, appliqués and more!”
