I’m excited to be joining the Holiday Stashdown Crochet-a-long! I’ve teamed up with 14 other crochet designers to share 15 free crochet patterns for holiday gift and decoration projects with you!
Each pattern will be a one-skein project, or a stashbuster/scrappy project, so you can work from your own existing yarn stash to make a great holiday gift. (If you’d like to go ahead and buy some yarn just for the project, that’s ok, too! We love yarn as much as you do!)
HOW TO JOIN IN THE HOLIDAY STASHDOWN CAL
Every Monday from September 14 through December 21, 2015, a new crochet pattern will be posted on one of our 15 blogs.
You can join in by crocheting each of the patterns as you have time.
Share your progress and post pictures of your finished projects. Tag your projects and posts #HolidayStashdownCAL2015 on all social media.
By the end of the crochet-a-long, you’ll have 15 great gifts for the holiday season.
