Crochet for Cancer CAL with Red Heart Prize Package

Hi Everybody;

Have you ever participated in a crochet-a-long for charity? I have not, and was so excited to get on board for this! 

Over the next two weeks, we are asking everyone to make four projects to mail to a chapter of Crochet for Cancer, Hooks of Hope, located in Eastern Pennsylvania. We have 9 bloggers promoting this, and  have compiled all of our best hat patterns for you to choose from to make your projects. Anyone can participate, You only need to make the hats, and mail them in to the address below. The CAL runs from now, until 4/21/2014. The person's whose packaged is first received by Hooks for Hope After 4/21,  wins a prize package from Red Heart Yarn, worth $125!!  This has been changed!!!!!  
All packages containing 4 items, postmarked from 4/14 to 4/28, 2014 will be entered into a drawing
If you need a pattern, here are the patterns from the bloggers participating below. If not, make your own!
The Crochet-A-Long is open worldwide, but the contest is better suited to residents of the US and Canada, although anyone is welcome to mail a package to Hooks of Hope. Contest rules:
1. Complete the challenge by making at least 4 projects (or two large projects, like a blanket or shawl)
2. Mail your package to Hooks of Hope (address above)
3. Make sure your package is postmarked on or before April 28, 2014
4. All packages with that postmark will be entered into a raffle three weeks after April 28 on May 19 (to give time for all the packages to come in the mail). 
5. The first package drawn will receive the grand prize from Red Heart. The 2nd through 5th packages will received handmade plarn bags with yarn goodies inside from Hooks of Hope!

Here are the bloggers participating! Thank you!

  • Must be new – never worn
  • Clean – free of perfume, pet hair and smoke
  • Placed individually in clear ziplock style plastic bags
  • Soft yarn is best- cotton, acrylic, silk, fleece or a blend is best. Do not use wool or alpaca as they can irritate the scalp.
  • We accept baby, children, youth, and adult hats.
  • Please use patterns that do not have gaps or large holes. A tighter stitch is best so that it covers the scalp.

  • Scarves
  • Blankets (all sizes)
