International Crochet Day 2011


International Crochet Day is Monday, September 12! That gives you a little time still to plan how you will celebrate.

Here are ten ideas to get you thinking.

10. Teach someone to crochet. Reinforce your teaching by hooking the person up with our eBook: Learn to Crochet: Instruction on How to Crochet and 5 Free Crochet Patterns for Beginners.

9. Yarn bomb a co-worker's cubicle. Or your spouse's car. Or your kid's lunchbox.

8. Vow to bust your stash. We'll help you out with patterns priced at crazy stashbuster prices. Check our Stashbuster Sale.

7. Make a hat. Give it away.

6. Enter a contest to win a crochet hook crafted by award-winning hook-carver Jimbo, who is a big fan of International Crochet Day. See Jimbo's Front Porch for details. Contest ends at noon on Monday.

5. Get started on your holiday gift list. If you can't find just what you're looking for in our 5 Free Patterns for Beautiful Handmade Gifts, check out our other free crochet patterns.

4. Crochet a flower or two or ten. Give them away at random to people you haven't met yet.

3. Leave us a comment here or on Facebook to let us know how you're celebrating International Crochet Day.

2. Crochet in public.

1. Crochet in your favorite spot for as long as you like.

I think to celebrate I shall be doing number 1, doing number 3 right now, I might try number 4 since I have never crochet a flower yet, number 8 as I do need to use my stash, and definitely number 10 as I want to teach my fiancé how to crochet so he can help me make squares for my granny square blanket.

Happy Internation Crochet Day

Thank You for these tips! If I had known this just a little bit earlier i might have done some more serious celebrating - for example tell somebody about this very special day!... But I have done number 1!

I made a Gir hat for my friend and gave it to her today.
Happy crochet day everyone!

I ran a demonstration at a local village hall on the 13 th and taught 2 ladies to crochet... Chatted to several more about coming to a craft club I'm helping to organise... It was a fabulous morning...

Ah, that is good to know! Now, I probably would have done some crocheting on Monday anyway, but still.. nice to know :)
