Hooked on Crochet
The Newsletter of


If you are like most people, the hustle and bustle of the holidays has now ended. When compared to all the family gatherings, parties, and events of the Christmas season, January can seem like a rather slow and boring month.

But, we prefer to look at it in a different way. Since January is less busy, that means there is more time to cozy up inside and work on a favorite crochet project.

In this newsletter, we have shared three crochet patterns that we like - one for a stylish winter hat, one for a elegant crochet bedspread, and one for a super warm and cozy blanket. As always, they are completely free for you to use.

We also have the latest news on our crochet contest and how you can enter - you can't win those great prizes is you don't enter! It's easy - just share your crochet resolution for the coming year and you could win a $25 Amazon gift card!

In addition to helping you win great prizes, we keep our eyes peeled to find you the best online crochet related deals - this week we have 3 great deals!

Wishing you and your family all the best in the coming week!
