Yarn Fanatic Party #33 (Snappy Tots Crochet Pattern Giveaway)

Welcome to this week's Yarn Fanatic Party!  It's a place to share your projects, see what others have made, support one another, and enter a crochet pattern giveaway.

One of my favorites from last week, and it really is so hard to choose, is this adorable Fat Bottom Bag.  I especially love the flower applique that Laura freestyled.

Here's another project that caught my eye, these bright and cheerful pillow covers:

Are you curious if you were one of the most clicked projects from last week?  EyeLoveKnots has that information for you!  (She also just posted a crochet washcloth pattern review that's worth checking out!)

I am still working on my lacy infinity scarf with the yarn from Tinted Tangles, I shared a peak on Friday.  It should be finished very soon!  I'm pretty happy with how it is turning out!

Giveaway Time!

I am very excited that Snappy Tots is this week's sponsor!  TEN lucky winners will receive one pattern.  That's right, TEN of you!  Read about the many hats that Heidi, the creative genius behind these patterns, wears on a daily basis, I am constantly amazed by all that one woman can do.

Above are three Snappy Tots crochet patterns that I absolutely love and simply need to highlight.  (I love a LOT more, but had to limit myself.)  The Big Brave Dragon is simply fantastic!  Catherine loved the tutu on the Slouchy Backpack.  The Beach Kids hat made me laugh out loud, literally.

Details and Important Information: Must be 18+ to enter. US only. Void where prohibited. Winners must respond to my email within 48 hours or a new winner will be chosen. Social media is not affiliated with this giveaway. The sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment.  A quick note to my international friends: I know many of you are disappointed that these giveaways are limited to US only.  The problem is that there are hundreds of rules and laws regarding how giveaways are run.  It can be very easy to accidentally break the law when international policy comes into play.  I simply wish to keep everything as legal as possible, and for now at least that means limiting these giveaways to US entrants.  I do hope that you still participate in these Yarn Fanatic Parties and that someday there might be a giveaway that you can enter!

Link up your projects!
What have you created with yarn?  It could be something you crocheted, knitted, or anything that used yarn.  It can be a new project or an old one.  (I would appreciate it though if it had not been linked up to a previous Yarn Fanatic Party.)  I can't wait to see what you've created!

The only rule is that everything you link to must be family friendly.

  • Leave comments here, there, and everywhere.  (Please, take a moment to visit at least one other blog and leave a comment.  I want this to be a supportive community of yarn lovers.  To help encourage this a new entry option has been added to the giveaway.  I've been crazy busy lately, and not able to comment on everyone's links, but I will try to comment on everyone's this week!)

  1. I really like the rebel rabbit hat

  2. Thanks so much for featuring my bag today!

  3. There are so many cute patterns from SnappyTots I really don't know which one I would pick if I won one of the pattern giveaways. I'm a gamer girl at heart so I have been eying the Optimus Prime hat and the Mario Plant hat.

    I've purchased from SnappyTots before and the gifts I've made from the pattern were very well-received. I think it'll be pretty fitting for me to share the link to that project this time. =)

  4. Thank you for this Linkparty and your link to my blog. For the first time I didn't understand there are two blogs with one linkparty: The Philosopher's Wife and Eyeloveknots. So I was looking after the link to 'Horsy' at Eyeloveknot's blog and couldn't find. ;-) But know I do and gave a link at my blog two both of your blogs.
    Greetings from Marijke

  5. Thanks for hosting and enjoy the weekend!

  6. The Cracked Egg set literally made me just go "aawwwwww" out loud!


  8. I like the Batmask!

  9. I love the Tizzy Zoo hats and the Batmask!

  10. I love the Fudgy Wiggle Ears (

  11. OMG what cute patterns! I love the one for the Crazy Drummer hat.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
