Transatlantic Crochet

Transatlantic Crochet avatar

Transatlantic Crochet is a small team of crocheters that started in Toulouse, France. Started by two college students as a way to make some extra money around classes, they soon branched out into designing their own patterns, taking on bigger and bigger projects and pioneering the art of crocheted cosplay!
The heart of Transatlantic Crochet's mission is to "make crochet sexy again", and show that it is not just a hobby for old ladies!

Vincent’s Bunny

It’s not often that I’m honoured to get a request, but this time I am.
My fellow intern and general partner in crime from nine to five wanted an extra special birthday gift for his girlfriend. He sent me a photo of her beloved childhood toy, you know, the one you take with you everywhere and end up battered and well loved, and asked me to crochet a shiny, new replica. I wrote this pattern based off the picture he sent me, and wanted to share it with the world.
