Happy New Year, dear crochet friends!!! Wishing you lots of happy crochet hours and many exciting amigurumi projects for 2023!
It has become a tradition to look over the past year in our personal life, and remind us about the most exciting things that happened or major changes that took place. It`s a pity I never did this for my lilleliis brand before, but better late than never. I decided to put together a little overview of the year 2022 (mostly photos!) and make some stats and analysis. So here are some important numbers of my crochet year 2022 :)
NEW PATTERNS 2022
2022 was one of the less productive years for me. Don`t ask why. I´ve just been low and empty of inspiration. I only came out with 5 new patterns. Here they are!
Amigurumi peace dove
Amigurumi Great Tit
Crochet sun and cloud garland
Luna the Moon Fairy
Amigurumi mini carrot
MOST POPULAR CROCHET PATTERN 2022
There is no doubt, Christmas tree garland always has been and still is my TOP 1 crochet pattern. So simple, so beautiful, so satisfying to make and turn yourself into the Christmas mood.
TOP 3 AMIGURUMI PATTERNS 2022
It`s so interesting to see which patterns succeed and which don`t. It`s always kind of a happy and sad moment together, because I myself love all my creations but some of them simply don`t become popular. But there can be surprisers. Like my top-seller of 2022. When I first posted a work in progress photo of the hen on my Instagram channel, I thought it was a failure.
Here are my TOP 3 best-selling patterns of 2022.
Rag doll cat
MOST POPULAR YOUTUBE TUTORIAL 2022
There is one specific video tutorial that people find very helpful and comment a lot sharing their gratitude for this tip. It`s about embroidering a mouth to an amigurumi.
If you`ve struggled with this too, discover a technique I´ve developed during the years. It works really well on both dolls and animals.
Priscilla recently said: “Thank you so much. This is the best tutorial i have seen for this.”
La-Wrene said: “Thank you for sharing this it was exactly what I needed to complete my project.”
MOST POPULAR FREEBIES 2022
Those 2 most popular freebies are very basic. They`re nothing original on the design wise, but I guess I have managed to write easy to understand patterns so they are highly appreciated among my fans and page visitors.
And finally, if I could make a wish for 2023 then it would definitely be to GET MY CROJO BACK!
I want to feel full of inspiration.
I want to wake up every morning and feel excited about what I´m going to make today.
I want to complete the book I´ve been carrying in my mind for some years now.
