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
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
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!
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!
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
Help teach your loved ones 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us on social media using the hashtag #2022internationalcrochetday
