About Marie Segares

Mock Bobble Cowl, free #crochet pattern by Underground Crafter #HolidayStashdownCAL2016If you’re new to Underground Crafter, let me tell you a bit about myself! I’ve been crocheting since 1984 and knitting since 2010. I’m a generally crafty gal. I’ve been known to embroider, sew, quilt, and make hot process soap. I also love cooking and baking.

I live in New York City and do quite a bit of my crocheting (and now knitting) on the subways, so that’s the reason for the “Underground Crafter” name. On the Underground Crafter blog, I share free crochet and knitting patterns, tips and tutorials, as well as occassional crafty book reviews and giveaways, and recipes.

You can find me right here on Underground Crafter . Show your support by subscribing to my weekly newsletter or following me on Craftsy | Etsy| Facebook | G+ | Pinterest | Ravelry | Twitter | YouTube.

Announcing the Holiday Stashdown Crochet-a-long 2016 edition!

Announcing the Holiday Stashdown crochet-a-long 2016! #HolidayStashdownCAL2016I’m excited to announce that we’ll be continuing the Holiday Stashdown CAL for 2016!

I’ve teamed up with 19 other crochet designers to share 24 free crochet patterns for holiday gift and decoration projects with you.

Each pattern will be a one-skein project, or a stashbuster/scrappy project, so you can work from your own existing yarn stash to make a great holiday gift. (If you’d like to go ahead and buy some yarn just for the project, that’s ok, too! We love yarn as much as you do!)

How the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2016 works

From January through August, we’ll share a new free crochet pattern on the second Monday of each month. In September, we’ll launch into full holiday crafting mode, and new patterns will be shared every Monday through December 19, 2016.


How to join the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2016

  • You can join in by crocheting each of the patterns as you have time.
  • Share your progress and post pictures of your finished projects. Tag your projects and posts #HolidayStashdownCAL2016 on all social media.
  • Chat with other crocheters in our Facebook and Ravelry groups.
  • By the end of the crochet-a-long, you’ll have 24 great gifts for the holiday season.

Shop warehouse clearance deals, yarn, and crochet and knitting patterns at LeisureArts.com.
