Happy International Crochet Day, 2010. To celebrate I thought I’d create a pattern for crocheter’s around the world. This is a quick and easy project which you can scale up for a big shawl or scale down for a head scarf. Wear it any which way you like, enjoy :-)

As many of you will be aware it’s International Crochet Day on Sunday, so I was wondering what everyone was doing to celebrate or promote crochet.
I will no doubt be eating, sleeping and breathing crochet. I will be blogging, pattern writing, and even crocheting. Why not pop along to the International Freeform Crochet group and have a look at this years exhibition.
I will probably be making and hanging more ribbons on The Crochet Clootie Tree.

Anyway I would love to know what you all are doing are you busy crafting for Christmas yet? Leave a comment and let us know what your working on. If you are a fellow blogger then please do blog about International Crochet Day 2010 and spread the word.

Originally I had wanted to turn this blue and white striped double duvet cover into a lovely crocheted rag rug for which I've seen a few lovely project photos of in some of my craft books. This project seemed to be doomed to failure though as my original hope to make a circular mat wouldn't stay flat and then when I realised just how long it would take to cut up a whole double duvet cover and then try to crochet it was just too big a time commitment.
To the right you can see the original attempt at a rag rug being used by my little boy... seeing as I had wanted to make it square and it was about a metre long I would have still been doing it this time next year if I had continued with it. Maybe next time I want to try and make a rag rug I'll have a go with the plaited method instead.
