6 Fun Crochet Patterns for the Sukkah

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – 3 Comments

Have you ever heard of Sukkot? Like Hanukkah, it is a Jewish Festival that lasts about a week. Unlike Hanukkah, it takes place during the autumn season. It is a time to give thanks for the fall harvest. During this time, people who observe this festival build sukkahs, which are temporary shelters meant to symbolize the shelters used by Jews during the 40 years of wandering.

During the festival, people spend time in the sukkah, eating there, having guests, and sometimes even sleeping there. Decorating the sukkah can be a fun activity for the whole family. Since Sukkot begins on September 27, 2015 and ends on October 4th this year, there is plenty of time to crochet one of these projects for your sukkah or to share these project with friends who may celebrate the holiday.

A fall leaf garland is a great adornment for the sukkah. Hang the garland from the roof slats to add a festive touch. You could use the Acorn Applique to alternate between the leaves, if you’d like. Continuing with the maple leaf theme, you can set the table with Maple Leaf Coasters. How cute!

To give your outfit a harvest flare, you can crochet Amy’s adorable Autumn Leaf Earrings. You can add an Apple of My Eye Applique on a pin back or a key ring to help celebrate the festival, too.

Because people hang out in the sukkah and even sometimes sleep there, it would be great to make it more comfortable with a crocheted pillow like the cute Owl Pillow.

So what about you, my friends? Have you ever spent time in a sukkah before? Do you think you’ll crochet any of these patterns for fall- either celebrating Sukkot or for other reasons? Please leave your thoughts, ideas and questions in the comment section below.
