Best crochet patterns of Malloo 2018

This is going to be a slightly different blog post from the ones you are used to seeing from me. I decided to make a compilation of the best posts I published in 2018. How do I define which ones are the best?

But from all of you, of course, and the love you showed them, throughout the year!

Maybe I am a little bit influenced by my husband, who has a radio show and this time of the year always makes lists about the best albums of the year that just passed.

So, writing one of these felt very natural to me and is something we are used to in our house. I hope it doesn’t seem too self-promotional to you because that wasn’t my intention at all.

Top 10 of the best crochet patterns of my blog Malloo for 2018.

I just wanted to say a big thank you, to all of you who showed so much love for the work I have done in the past year. And maybe you will discover some of the things that other people liked and they just happened to slip by you, unnoticed.

Let’s start our top 10 from the bottom up!

10. How to make a bathroom pom pom rug

Not exactly a crochet project, but a diy one. Pom poms are always fun to make and they look very playful!

8. Crochet Christmas tree pattern

This one surprised me a bit to make it into the list. Not because I didn’t like it or thought people wouldn’t like it. The only reason is that it was published at the end of November, so making it to number 8 is a great success!
