Just in time for the March 2nd birthday...

...of Dr. Seuss, Repeat Crafter Me has posted an adorable crochet pattern for FREE that you or your child can wear to mark the celebration.

The Cat in the Hat book is a favorite of everyone and Dr. Seuss is an author that children of all ages have fallen in love with! I know that many schools have programs to celebrate his birthday; this would be perfect!

The pattern is super easy; I completed the crochet headband last night in a couple of hours.

To get your FREE copy of her pattern, visit Sarah's blog at Repeat Crafter Me, and if you haven't already seen her patterns, be sure to browse her site. She is a very talented designer!

Have you tried planned pooling yet?

Have you tried the new planned pooling crochet technique yet?

I have been tempted, but just haven't seen a pattern that sparked my interest...until now.

Marly Bird created a pattern for Red Heart Yarns that definitely has me wanting to try my hand at the "pooling" craze.

This would make a wonderful addition to your kitchen or dining room table. You can substitute colors to coordinate with your decor.
