Crochet some leaves and add handcrafted Fall colors throughout your home. We just added a free pattern for a Fall Leafy Banner (LW5495) to our redheart.com site showing it on a window. But I wanted to share some other ideas for using crochet leaves throughout the Fall season.
Fast and easy to work with, Irresistible will become your favorite new yarn! Mega-thick, this yarn is a perfect choice for trendy fashion and home dec projects! Just one ball will make a scarf or cowl so fast you’d better not blink. Or stitch a little longer and you’ll be nice cozy under a super warm blanket this winter! Irresistible is also great for arm knitting and finger crochet.
This I Love Yarn Day, Stitch It Forward and teach someone else to crochet or knit!
I Love Yarn Day is an annual event to celebrate yarn. In 2016, it will be held on Saturday, October 15th. In celebration of the 6th anniversary of the event, the Craft Yarn Council (CYC) is encouraging everyone to teach a friend, neighbor, or family member how to crochet, knit, weave, or otherwise have fun with yarn. Plus, there’s a scavenger hunt you can join to enter for a chance to win prizes!
Most people remember their first stitching lesson and who taught them how to turn skeins or balls of yarn into great scarves, hats, sweaters, afghans, and more. Pass along your love of stitching to someone you love! Use the hashtags #iloveyarnday and #stitchitforward to share what you’re doing, and follow our social media to join in!

When Gigi Hadid was spotted wearing this designer granny coat and scarf (retailing for over $1,000), we knew we had to show crocheters how they could get the same look at a fraction of the price! So we are excited to show you how to use our much more reasonably priced Red Heart yarns to crochet your own Granny Sweater Coat.
