A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour
Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017. Join us for a month of virtual glamping (aka glamorous camping), as we visit crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, as well as offer some fun giveaways.
Today’s Posts: Linda Dean | Katy Petersen | Mélissa Thibault | Daily Giveaway
Want to Chat about the Tour?
Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

Linda Dean, Linda Dean Crochet
Crochetville is very proud to have designer Linda Dean with us today, March 30, as one of the featured designers on our 2017 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo). If you’d like to know even more about Linda, check out our post from last year’s blog tour.
Linda Dean is a long time, self taught crocheter, a Professional member of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA), a Master in Advanced Stitch and Technique (by CGOA), a Certified Instructor/Teacher with The Craft Yarn Council (CYC), and serves on the Board of Directors as well as the Chairperson for the Masters Committee with CGOA. You can find her published designs in various outlets, as well as self published. You can find her teaching at local yarn stores and national/regional conferences.
She lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California with her husband and two children, on a small farm. Internet access is limited, so so doesn’t post to the blog daily, but you will find inspiration a couple of times a week.
Tell us about your most popular pattern.
My most popular pattern is Summer Rays Drop Stitch Wrap.

I will be offering a free pattern and discounts to my Ravelry store.
If you’re not familiar with my work already, I’d like to share three of my designs with you.
1. Interlude Tunisian Crochet Shawl, $5.00
Work it knitted, work it crocheted; one design created 2 ways! Short row triangles worked on large needles/hooks create an airy drape and a spectacularly quick project. This shawl can dress up any outfir, and add a feminine quality to any look.
2. Transmute Square Throw, $3.50
Mitered squares with open work create a very modern style for a simple favorite. A combination of large and small squares add additional interest, making this throw a classic.
3. Rice Paper Weave Glove & Hat Set, $5.00
Fingered gloves are a must during the cold months, and are easier then they look! This simple stitch pattern offers a unique texture that gives the gloves just enough stretch. Finish off the look by creating a hat, why not; there is enough yarn in the skein to do both! Has an option for texting! Sized for both men & women.
