Welcome to the Blog Hop Crochet Along

from guest blogger Maria Bittner of Pattern Paradise

I’m so excited to announce that a couple of friends and I have partnered with Red Heart Yarn to sponsor the 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop Crochet-Along (CAL)!

How does it work?

Each Friday, starting in early September, we’ll be posting a new free pattern with a holiday theme. The projects vary in size and type and yarn usage so that you can have lots of fun, learn a little and have some great home décor, holiday gifts and practical projects too. And, it will all end in early December so you have lots of time to use your projects for this holiday season!

Thanks to Red Heart Yarn, we will be hosting a Weekly Yarn Giveaway (value $50) so that you can try some of their new and featured yarns! And, at the end, we’ll have a Grand Prize Giveaway (value $125) too!
