My crochet year 2022

my crochet year 2022

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 :)


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!

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.

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.

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.”

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.
