National CROCHET MONTH celebration 2017

March is not only this time of the year  when the spring is coming. In March we celebrate the art of crochet!
I’m very happy to share with you that I’m part of this year National Crochet Month blog tour hosted by my brilliant colleagues  Amy & Donna from  Crochetville 
March is not only this time of the year when the spring is coming. It’s also time to organize and re-organize. That’s why I designed something that could help you to put in order your staff – Knit look basket . It’s on sale at Ravelry for today (March 25th). Pattern includes notes how to make the size you need.  Make it with handles or without,  play with colors and enjoy your tidy home. I used ready-made T-shirt yarn but you can make the yarn by yourself and recycle some T-shirts.

I have one more surprise to celebrate National Crochet Month 2017. All Ana D patterns are  50% OFF with code NATCRO  till  Sunday, March 26th.
Thanks for stopping by!   If you enjoyed Ana D patterns  please join us and share your finished projects with us in our Facebook Community Group at Ana D Crochet Group Happy crocheting!
