Welcome to Crochet Every Day! My name is Megan and I have a newly rejuvenated love for crocheting (also a desire to knit better than knit one...).

My goal is to post a new pattern every day of 2010 and to have EVERYTHING finished by 2014. That gives me 5 years to do 365 patterns. It seems like a long time, but my plan is to have some complex patterns, as well as simple ones. I can do a bunch of amigurumi (that's the Japanese art of tiny crocheted stuffed toys / decorations) in one day, but a blanket will take me a few weeks. This blog is more about completion. I want to complete the finding of 365 patterns and in 5 years complete all of the projects. I also want to challenge myself to try a variety of patterns - right now I have only crocheted scarves, beanies, and blankets (oh last week, when I started researching for this, I found a baby bootie pattern and made those). These projects will not all be for myself, I will be giving many things away. I also hope to highlight various charities along the way, and give things to them.

Once I have posted everything, I will make a master list of all the projects, each one will say when it was updated, started, completed, etc. The links will take you back to the original post.

I have a few sites that I use most regularly for patterns. I found a bunch at Lion Brand and Red Heart. And then this is a complete list of like a zillion crochet patterns (seriously I printed it out and it was like 57 pages).

Check me out on Ravelry! (I have found many patterns here as well and they have a cool set up where you can show your progress on current projects.)

If you are new to crocheting, check out this helpful page from Lion Brand.

Thanks for joining me on this journey!
