March Texture Madness: Crochet A Long

Every year March is the National Craft Month with its own National Crochet week in the middle of it. This year I thought we could Celebrate National Craft Month with a March Texture Madness Crochet A Long. 

Sign up for my Newsletter so you don’t miss any part of the event. 

This event is all about expanding your crochet skills and learning new, fun and exciting crochet stitches. We will be learning nine heavily texture crochet stitches with left and right handed video tutorials, that will be great for all three of the end projects we will be making.

Yes, in this Crochet A Long you will have the option to make one of three projects: a small, medium and large project. Each project will be made using the texture crochet stitch sample swatches that we will be making.

I won’t tell you just yet what those three end projects are, but what I will tell you is that they are all baby items that will be great for baby or toddler boys and girls. Also, only the largest project requires all 9 stitch sample swatches.

Texture crochet stitches are yarn eaters! This project will be an amazing stash buster. Use a different color for each sample swatch. Babies and toddlers love lots of colors!
