This fantastic calendar is full of stitch patterns, which you can use for any crochet project you desire..... afghans, scarves, hats, sweaters, etc. This calendar does NOT include projects, just stitches, but the possibilities are endless. Wouldn't it be fun to make a sampler afghan using a different stitch pattern for each block?
Each day's entry is complete and does not run into multiple days. And there is one entry for each and every day of the year, including February 29th! Don't let the title of the calendar scare you off in a leap year.
Because the calendar is a perpetual calendar, you will not find days of the week, nor will you find holidays listed, since many holidays move around from year to year. What you will find are holiday themed stitch patterns on certain days, such as Irish Fans for March 17th and Deck the Halls for December 25th. And you will also find a great photo of the stitch pattern. And being a perpetual calendar, you can start using it the day it arrives.
Some stitch patterns are very classic looking and others are quite unique. Many stitch patterns employ familar stitches such as popcorns, shells, fans, front & back posts, V-stitches, picots, but they do so in a variety and clever ways. What a pleasure to look through 366 stitch patterns! And you gotta' love a calendar that includes a stitch pattern called Frisky Fans!
