Top Ten Ways to Celebrate International Crochet Day

Sep 10, 2011

International Crochet Day is Monday, September 12! That gives you a little time still to plan how you will celebrate and even some great gift ideas.

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.

Happy crocheting!

And we thought inviting the crafts community to work with us would make it all that much more fun. So last week we launched the For the Animals! campaign to raise handmade donations of pet mats, blankets, beds and toys to donate to animal shelters, and to encourage people to share stories of how shelter animals have touched their lives.<a href=">

These are all great ideas. I'm going to work on an afghan I've let languish too long.

They way described here is awesome. I hopefully like these ways. Really enjoyable and I am grateful to them. I hope they will build a new category and make everything to their symphony.

Are you talking about September 12, 2012?  The day of the week is wednesday not Monday, unless I have something wrong.  Let know.
