Crocheted Christmas All Year
Christmas may seem like a long ways off (or like it just happened!), but that doesn't mean we can't start thinking about it! After all, it's a yearlong job for Santa and his elves … so why not be an elf yourself and spread joy all year long? And if you are like myself, you always run out of time when finishing up Christmas gifts at the end of the year. This year I want to add some charity crochet to my gift list.
The magic of the holiday season thrives 365 days a year thanks to Caron United's partnership with Children of Fallen Patriots. The two organizations invite you and your friends to crochet or knit blanket squares for the World's Largest Stocking, which will be unveiled during the 2015 holiday season! In the meantime, we're releasing a new free pattern each month for you to contribute to the stocking. And as for your yarn, fifteen cents of every skein of Caron United yarn sold will be donated to support college education funding for military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
It's easy to get started! Download the latest Interweave crochet or knit pattern, then visit your local Jo-Ann Fabrics, Michael's or Walmart, or go to Yarnspirations.com/CaronUnited to purchase your Caron United yarn and get to work on your 3 x 3-foot square. Once complete, mail it to:

Let's do our part to give back … and have fun doing it! And Merry Christmas . . . even if it is a few months too early.
P.S. What month do you usually begin your Christmas crochet?
