International Crochet Month

March is known as the International Crochet Month. Crochet is absolutely amazing for your body and soul, so let's seize the occasion and celebrate in a different way. We have five ideas for you and at Hoooked we are going to put one of them in practice! Choose your favorite or just do them all.

1. Teach someone to crochet

This is the idea we are going to implement in 2023. We are running a free online crochet beginners’ class. You can do your own teaching or just encourage your friends and family to engage with us. Follow the link to know all the details about it.

2. Crochet in public

Grab your yarns and hook, choose a bench in the park, sit down and relax with your crochet. Or just do it by drinking a cup of coffee in the neighbourhood. 

3. Start a new crochet project

We have so many wonderful project ideas for you. You can search all of our DIY crochet kits here. Usually in a kit you find the yarn, the printed pattern and the accessories you need. 

But if you want to choose your own colour pallet, you can get the online pattern here, and choose the yarn and the colours you want.

4. Learn a new crochet technique

Have you ever tried tapestry crochet? It enables you to create multiple areas of different colours, with invisible colour change, in your crochet work.  On our YouTube channel, we have a video tutorial on it here.

And here is a project idea for you to crochet and apply this technique.

This mochila look crochet basket is a challenge for the intermediate to advanced crocheter! The crochet pattern is designed by Nathaly from StudioBelovely and extensively tested during our 2022 Blue Monday CAL. The yarn used for this tapestry basket is Eco Barbante. This yarn is both soft and sturdy, ideal for crocheting baskets!
The motif on the bottom and the side of the basket is worked with the tapestry technique. This technique combined with other used techniques make this basket a fun challenge. But with the tips on the Hoooked CAL facebook page it should be very doable (the Facebook page is in dutch)! Decorate your living room, bedroom or hallway with this crocheted storage basket in green/brown shades, blue shades, or make your own color combination!

Measurements: the diameter of the bottom is 34 cm, the height is 19 cm incl. handels.

5. Learn a new crochet stitch

We just love Bobble stitches. Here you have a video tutorial for you to learn. 

And of course, two projects for you to practice.
