Put Your Best Hook Foward: Free Crochet Pattern Link Party!

Put Your Best Hook Foward: Free Crochet Pattern Link Party!

As a crochet designer, especially first starting out, I struggled to find ways to get my designs and my blog in the eyes of the people who wanted to see them! Then, I found link parties. One of the link parties that I partcipated in quite a few times is the Put Your Best Hook Forward Link party - and now I get to help host it! I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to assist other designers in getting their beautiful patterns in the hands of makers who are looking for unique crochet designs!

As a crochet designer, what can you get out of this link party? You get FREE publicity for your latest designs AND your blog! Makers come to the link party looking for unique designs and click on the ones they find most interesting - the ones that get clicked the most will be featured on the images for next months party AND get a special mention on the link party introductory blog posts by the hosts!

As a crocheter and fellow yarn lover, what will you find here? A brief directory of the most recent unique crochet patterns published by independent crochet designers! Some of these designers are just getting their start, while others have been self publishing patterns for years! You get the opportunity to show some love to the creative minds that bring you these patterns AND you get loads of FREE patterns to save in your Pinterest or Ravelry library! Or even start making tonight!

Any crocheter - designer or maker - will find something fun in this crochet link party! I hope you stick around, add a pattern and click a few links! I’m confident you will find beautiful patterns to love!
