How the 2024 Gift to Myself Crochet Along Works
Starting from the 2nd of January and running all the way until February 1, 2024, Underground Crafter will be teaming up with 14 brilliant crochet designers to bring you a new and permanently free crochet pattern on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Each pattern will fit the theme of something you would crochet for yourself. Some would dub it “selfish crocheting,” and I like to call treating yourself!
We know you’ve spent so much of last year making things for others, especially during the last few months as you got your holiday gifts together. Each pattern in this CAL is unique and fun to crochet up. You’ll love having these patterns in your library, ready to whip up whenever you need a pick-me-up!
All the patterns in this CAL are forever free on the blog of each designer and specially designed for this event. These are never before seen makes.
We’ve also partnered with some of our favorite companies to get some great prizes for you. Scroll down to get more details on the prizes from AndeanSun Yarns, GlassEyesOnline, Knitting Needle Outlet, and KnitPal to enter the giveaway for your chance to win one of 4 prizes by Sunday, February 4, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.
