National Crochet Month – Crochet deals!

As we’ve mentioned (AKA been screaming from the rooftops), March is National Crochet Month, a wonderful excuse to celebrate all things crochet! Of course, we never need an excuse to celebrate this fun and fabulous craft, but it’s great to have the entire month to connect with fellow crocheters and gush about notions, patterns, yarns, and other goodies.

Crochet YOY
Which block is your favorite?

Speaking of gushing, we have several amazing deals in the Crochet and Knit Shop in honor of National Crochet Month!

Blooming Crochet Hats
Hats for the whole family

Or, since spring is just around the corner, celebrate with Blooming Crochet Hats and stitch up a pretty floral design you can wear all year round. This fun book features 10 interchangeable motifs, so you can mix and match to design the hat of your dreams.

Olive Twist 200
A great design for spring and summer

Finally, I think we should all use National Crochet Month as an excuse to treat ourselves to something crafty and special, and the Olive Twist Shawl is just that. The unique filigreed looks is created by twisted chains, giving this accessory an ornate look that balances the summery feel of the linen yarn. Both Kathy and I have crocheted this shawl, and we can’t recommend this pattern enough. The best part is that it comes in a handy kit, making your yarn selection a breeze. Choose from 5 classic, springy colors and get your Olive Twist Shawl kit while the deal lasts!
