CELEBRATING NATIONAL CROCHET MONTH!
I love March! It marks the end of a long and dreary winter, and brings us together to celebrate National Crochet Month and our love of the craft itself.
Topping the list of celebrations is the National Crochet Month Designer Blog Tour, hosted by Crochetville’s own Amy Shelton and Donna Hulka. A big “thank you!” to both ladies for allowing me to take part in it again this year.
Today, I’m introducing a new free pattern, Spring Flower. It measures about 2½” across when worked with sport yarn, and has two layers of five petals each. Use it to embellish hats, bags or whatever else you can think of. Click on the link above to download the free pattern.
As an added bonus, my new Grab & Go Tote, will also be free for a period of one week, only, through April 3, 2014. Starting April 4, it will be available on Craftsy and later in the Crochetville Pattern Shop for $3.95. It’s just the right size for a small crochet project, a book, your tablet or e-reader, or even your lunch. Toss in your wallet and keys, and you’ll be out the door in a jiffy! As above, click on the link to download the pattern.
This year, Crochetville and the Designer Blog Tour are focusing on Halos of Hope, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded by Pam Haschke, who is a survivor of inflammatory breast cancer. Halos mission is to provide hats to cancer centers across the country. Please consider supporting them by making a hat or two to donate. To learn more about this wonderful charity, visit the Halos of Hope Web site or visit them on their Facebook page.
Crochetville proudly supports Halos and has volunteered to collect hats for them, which Amy will deliver on April 11, 2014, at Stitches South. You may send your hats to Amy’s home at:
ATTN: Amy Shelton
