Announcing the 2023 Hat of the Month CAL

Announcing the 2023 Hat of the Month CAL!

Rhondda from and I are so excited to host our Hat of the Month CAL again in 2023! We will be joined by 12 wonderful designers who will each design a new free hat pattern for you to crochet and enjoy! Don’t forget to check out our Scarf of the Month CAL this year as well! We have a supply list to help you prepare for each month’s patterns. You can find the supply list for both CALs here.

If you are new to The Hat of the Month CAL, here is how works:

Each month, on the fourth Sunday of the month, Rhondda and I will each share one free crochet hat or headband pattern. Our guest designer for the month will also be contributing a new free crochet hat pattern. By the end of the year, you will have 36 free crochet hat patterns to choose from to create for yourself and your loved ones or to share as gifts! Something new that we will be doing this year is sharing a post with the yarn and hook needed for each pattern, prior to the pattern releases, so that you can be prepared to crochet them. We will also continue to offer a free PDF copy of each pattern for 24 hours after the pattern release.
