How the 2024 Softie Crochet Along Works

Every Monday from March 18 to June 24, 2024, we’ll share a free crochet pattern for a softie from a different crocheter. You can make these softies to keep, for gifts, to sell at a craft fair, or to donate to charity while chatting with other crocheters in our groups and sharing your projects to win giveaway prizes!
