On Fridays, I share a link blast on G+, Twitter and Facebook to get you excited about crocheting all weekend! In keeping with the #FlashbackFriday meme, I’m sharing patterns that were first released at least 12 months ago.
Today’s roundup is a bit different than usual. First of all, if you’re reading this the day it comes out, Happy New Year! Second, I’ve been out of the #FlashbackFriday habit for a few months now, and I wanted to return with a big bang. So, I’m highlighting the 15 free crochet patterns from the 2015 Holiday Stashdown crochet-a-long. These aren’t 12 months old, but the “new patterns” part of the CAL has come to an end, so I figure a flashback is in order.
If you’re just hearing about the CAL, you have until January 11, 2016 to enter the end-of-CAL giveaways. We have amazing giveaway prizes! You can learn more about the CAL and prizes here.
And, of course, you can also join in the 2016 Holiday Stashdown CAL, which kicks off on January 11, 2016. You can read more details here. All images are copyright the respective designer and used with permission.
