I was happy to find this tidbit of information while reading Lion Brand Yarn Facebook post this morning.

March is National Crochet Month! We’re celebrating with a stitch a day from our StitchFinder.

Let’s kick things off with a little Fanfare – that’s the name of this elegant stitch! Learn how to do it here: http://lby.co/1C4dMGU

March is National Crochet Month (NATCROMO) in the USA and this group is the go-to place for the annual Crochet Month party on Ravelry. The origins of National Crochet Month are a bit unclear. So we have also deemed it International Crochet Month (ITCROMO) on Ravelry.

Welcome! Be sure to introduce yourself and join the conversation. There will also be Games, CALs, Chats, and more.

We hope you enjoy yourself as we celebrate crochet and Ravelry and crochet on Ravelry!

What other Crochet Month celebrations have you seen?

I’m off to ponder what I’m going to create this month!

And a scarf for me!

The holidays are done and packed away. It’s time to make a new scarf or two for me!

When I was Christmas shopping I found two beautiful yarns so I WP_20150120_12_35_35_Prodecided to make two scarves for my collection this year! The one that I’m showing in this post is a Red Heart Yarn called Earth & Sky.

I saw a few similar scarves on Pinterest. I really liked the tassel / fun of the design.

I decided to make it two long rows of double stitch for the ‘base’. Then for the tassel part I made the start of each single stitch strand at one stitch (of the base) then ended the strand at the stitch next to it. To finish off the ‘base’ (opposite side to the tassels)  I made a row of puff stitches for texture.
