Hello friends! I am so excited to be hosting my first ever blog hop this month, featuring Quick Gifts for the first half of December and Cozy Makes for the second half.
My friends and I have some great gifts in store for you this month as we wind up 2023! Be sure to bookmark this page and check back each day in December to see what the feature is for the day.
We want to make sure your gift list is covered, so for the first half of December, we will be sharing Quick Gift crochet patterns. Then at the second half, we will feature Cozy Makes, or patterns for you to work on after the craziness of this month has died down!
Each designer will be offering their pattern either for free or for a discount, plus some of them have additional offerings for you on their featured day!
I will be updating this post daily to share the featured design and the discount code. This month will be a lot of fun for all of us as we share freebies and discounts! Please be sure to read the update and the featured designer’s blog post each day carefully to find out what the special offer is. This will reduce frustration for you, the designers and myself as each day the special offer can differ from designer to designer.
If you have not yet subscribed to the Straight Awesome Newsletter, please be sure to do so. You will receive daily updates when a new pattern is available during the Quick Gifts/ Cozy Makes Blog Hop (although if those daily emails get to be a bit much, you can opt out), PLUS you’ll get exclusive freebies and discounts and be among the first to know each time a new Straight Hooked pattern is available! Oh, and you get pictures of my Shih Poo puppy Ruby Sue from time to time because she’s just wicked cute and sure to put a smile on your face 🙂
This post will be updated by 8am MST each day from December 1-31, 2023 so be sure to check in each day to see what surprise is in store for you!
The first featured pattern in the Quick Gifts/ Cozy Makes blog hop comes from myself! If you haven’t learned my signature Dolphin Stitch yet, you are in for a TREAT! The Dolphin Stitch is fun to work up, easy to master and creates amazing texture. I used this stitch in both the Polar Rush Beanie and its sister pattern, the Polar Rush Capelet.
The second pattern featured is the Santa Pouch from Fosbas Designs. This pattern is a simple Crochet Santa Treat bag to hand out treats this season. A quick make that can be completed at a sitting, which means you have time to make several as last minute gifts!
This pattern is available as a forever free pattern on the designer’s blog.
Our third featured pattern comes from Elimee Designs. Wrap yourself in cozy style with the Caitlin Zigzag Cowl, a beautiful filet crochet creation featuring an elegant zigzag motif. Perfect for beginners, this cowl adds warmth and a touch of handmade charm to your outfit. Plus, it’s a quick and satisfying project to complete!
Day four brings us the Joanna Soap Sack from I Crochet So Hard. This pattern is available for free on the designer’s blog, and as an added treat you can use the coupon code to save 30% on the Joanna Spa Pattern Bundle. See the designer’s post for more details.
