In place of this week’s Free Pattern Friday, I thought we could kick off a crochet-a-long for the month of June. This month, I decided that it might be fun to make some red, white, and blue things and be ready to decorate for the 4th of July. I’ve picked out four free patterns that would work well for a red, white, and blue-themed crochet-a-long. They are Ice Tea Jackets, Red Hot Dishtowels, Lacy Coasters, and Hot Pad Roundup.
The only rules for this crochet-a-long are that you will have to make at least one item from any of these free patterns, and it has to be red, white, or blue, and you may use any kind of yarn or thread. I have made another doily for one of the prizes, and Crochet Soiree has some goodies to give away: a Boye CrochetMaster Hook Set and copies of both the knit and crochet versions of the new Celebrity Slouchy Beanies books. It will be another random drawing. Good luck to you all. The June CAL will end on June 30.
