Free and Fun Crochet Contest

We thought it would be fun to start having some crochet contests. We believe that contests tend to bring out the best in people and give you a reason to share your very best tips, techniques, pictures, stories, favorites, and more.

So, here's what is going to happen - each month, there will be a new contest that will run from the first to the last day of that month. These contests will be free to enter and you could win everything from crochet pattern books to Amazon gift cards!
