Crochet Holidays!

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – 4 Comments

Holidays happen all year round, and I think it’s really fun to incorporate crochet into the holidays! I think it’s important, because holidays keep me motivated to crochet something and finish it for a reason.

I am thinking about the holidays that are coming up as I write this, and there are plenty! Crochet Spot is a global community, so I am hoping I can learn of some new holidays from different regions of the country and also different parts of the world. 🙂

I bought a really cool calendar that helps me keep up with my blogging. Now I want to use it to create crochet holiday inspiration!

Selected Upcoming Holidays & Crochet Items to Make

    I like to make decorations/toys for the holidays. Even people who don’t have room for year round crochet items seem to make room for holiday stuff. Then it goes away for another year.

      Bailey, it’s wonderful to give crochet away, and it’s great that there are so many cool, holiday-themed patterns from which to choose! Your idea is a good one. Crochet that is useful and won’t clutter your home! 🙂

    I usually don’t crochet anything for holidays, but your article, Cami, made me think of what would it be if I crochet, and for what holiday in that case… And I think it would be fun to crochet a small flag of Finland for the independence day, so small that you can put it on your pencil. I don’t know if I’m going to accomplish this idea in the nearest future, but if I sometime work with children, I think they would like if their teacher has the flag on the pencil on the occasion of the independence day. 🙂

      A tiny Finnsh flag of independence is a great idea. I can tell you that my students absolutely loved seeing my crocheted creations, so I heartily encourage you to make that flag!
