How the 2021 Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along Works

Every Monday and Thursday from October 4 through December 16, 2021, we’ll share a free crochet pattern by a different designer. 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 winter holiday gift, decoration, or wrap. If you’d like to go ahead and buy some yarn just for the project, we won’t stop you! We love yarn as much as you do.

This is our seventh annual Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along! If you want more project inspiration, be sure to check out the patterns from our previous Holiday Stashdown CALs.

We’ve teamed up with 18 wonderful companies – AdKnits, Babé Crochet, BonnieKreger, Brown Sheep Company, Inc., Chetnanigans, EngravingForYou, Eucalan, GurumiSupply, Hooked for Life Publishing, JitterBeanMugs, KnitPal, Knitter’s Relief Balm, Kraemer Yarns, SpaceCadet, SweetBrieCreations, TheCrafterWithinUs, Unicorn, and Walnut Farm Designs – to gather 20 amazing prizes for our end-of-CAL giveaway. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway by scrolling to the bottom of this post by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, December 31, 2021!
