Ways To Celebrate International Crochet Day!

Written by Kate Curry

Happy International Crochet Day my fellow crochetaholics! If you’re like me and you’re finding it hard to put down your hooks, September 12th is the perfect day for you! If you’re lost on how to celebrate this awesome holiday, we have some options for you!

  • Go crochet out in public
  • A person with long dark hair and an orange jumpsuit has their arms outstretched, their blue shawl spread wide. They're standing outside in a green hilly field by a large rock formation.

    Grab your yarn tote bag and shove your supplies in that bad boy and hit the road. Find a comfortable restaurant, park, or deck to soak in the sun while you craft. Who knows, you might meet some fellow crafters.

  • Join your fellow crafters
  • A person with short blond hair and glasses is inspecting a yarn tag as they crochet in public. Beside them is a man with short brown hair reading a pattern.

    There are a ton of different crochet clubs and events that you can find online - there’s some virtual ones, too! You can check out any Darn Good Yarn events on our events page!

  • Learn some new stitches!
  • A pair of hands is working on crocheting some lace weight silk yarn, while a myriad of other yarns are spread out across the table.

    Whether you go on a youtube stitch safari or peruse our new Stitch Learning Center, there will always be some cool new stitch or technique for you to practice and perfect!

  • Use your crocheting powers for good!
  • A mother wearing a bight pink hoodie hat while holding her baby that is wearing a dark green hat and holding a ball of bright blue yarn.

    Sadly, there are many groups and charities that would love to receive some handmade crochet goodies. Always keep your eye out for local groups that are accepting donations like DV shelters, animal shelters, and nursing homes, but here are a few of our favorites here at DGY

    Knots Of Love

    Warm Up America

    Knit Your Bit

    Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation

  • Help teach your loved ones to crochet
  • Alyssa, one of our DGY fiber artists, is teaching our co-worker Gabby's mom how to crochet.

    Gather those little buddies up and teach them the trade that gives back! If  they take to it, maybe you could create your own crafting group and make as many crochet items for donations as possible.

    What is your favorite way to celebrate? Send us pictures of what you’re working on at info@darngoodyarn.com or tag us on social media using the hashtag #2022internationalcrochetday
