We all know that March is National Craft Month, but did you know March is also National Crochet Month (NatCroMo)? To honor this craft-filled month, we're giving you the opportunity to win a fabulous new book! 

From the author of hugely popular book Animal Hats comes another hit - Crocheted Animal Hats (The Taunton Press, 2014). In this latest installment, Vanessa Mooncie has provided 15 iconic crochet patterns that are suitable for beginners and experts alike.

In additional to detailed instructions on how to make each project, there are ideas for additional details to add, a section for beginners on basic techniques, and a section with instructions for a cozy fleece lining. Because they come in adult and child sizes, the finished hats make terrific gifts for the whole family.


In celebration of National Crochet Month, we're giving away two copies of this incredible book. Leave a comment here by 11:59 p.m. EST, March 27 for your chance to win. Two winners will be selected at random and notified shortly thereafter.
