Five Year Etsy Anniversary – Free Pattern Giveaway

Ah I almost missed it – the 5th Anniversary of my Etsy shop!

I was reading someone’s blog post about an Etsy-versary when I remembered mine was sometime towards the end of December.  I looked and ah – it was today!  It IS today! How could I have almost let this day pass uncelebrated?!
JJCrochet first opened shop on December 30, 2005 and has sold 635 crochet patterns, knit hats, chunky cowls, thick scarves, and summer headbands.  Wow.  I couldn’t have done it without you, my wonderful customers. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  You’ve made these past 5 years wonderful.

To honor my Etsy-versary, I’m giving away FREE copies of my most popular crochet pattern: The most versatile crochet newsboy hat pattern! To get your free copy of the pattern that’s been purchased over 500 times, simply leave your name and e-mail in a comment and I’ll shoot you over the PDF.  Since there are only 4 hours left of December 30, 2010 here in Pennsylvania, I’m extending this free giveaway until midnight on December 31, 2010, EST.

Here’s a picture of the crochet newsboy hat pattern that will soon be yours!

Thank you for celebrating with me and thank you Etsy – here’s to another great 5 years!  Leave a comment to receive your free pattern.

Update: Thanks to all who commented – enjoy your free patterns!  

The giveaway is now closed.

    I want to try to make this in a silver/teal yarn for my daughter. All her beanies from last year do not fit. 🙂 Trying to find cute patterns that will also be warm.

    My favourite shops on etsy are the ones that sell elastic, flowers, bows etc. I love making hairbands for my one year old daughter to match all her pretty outfits!
