Hello all you crochet lovers! With fall upon us, we’ve got something super fun planned for Pineapple & Pine this month…PUMPKIN PALOOZA! We know how you all love crocheting pumpkins as soon as those leaves start turning, so we decided to create an entire event centered around pumpkins! The first half of the event is the Pumpkin Palooza Blog Hop. Let me walk you through the process and help you snag a whole bunch of free crochet patterns in the process.

What is a Blog Hop?

Ok, so maybe you’re new to the digital crochet world, or maybe it’s just your first time joining a blog hop. Whatever the case may be, I’m here to help you through the process. First of all, let me explain how a blog hop works.

A blog hop is an event that is put together by a group of bloggers, in this case crochet bloggers. The host will have a coupon code available each day with a link to that day’s featured designers blog. Your job as a participant in the hop is to copy that code and click over to the designers blog. Once you get there, the designer will have a link to take you directly to the pattern in their shop. Scroll until you find that special button and then click it! Now you have everything you need to grab a free pattern from that days featured designer. You can start again with at the host site each day with a new featured designer.

Why, you might ask? Now that’s the fun of a blog hop…everyone wins! You, as the participant in the event, get as many free patterns as you care to “hop” for. And us, as the host/designers, get some extra traffic and exposure on our websites. So if you stumble upon a site or designer you love, don’t be afraid to sign up for their newsletter or check out their other patterns…that’s the whole point! Well, that and some awesome freebies.


How to Join in the Pumpkin Palooza Blog Hop

Now that you have the general idea of the blog hop, here’s what you can look for in our blog hop. First of all, you’ve found the host page right here…congrats! I’ll have new coupon codes for you each WEEKDAY until September 15 when you’ll find the second half of the blog hop on the A Plush Pineapple blog. You’ll have 24 hours to redeem your code before we move on to the next designer, so don’t delay! Codes will be available from 12:00am EST – 11:59pm EST.

When you get to the designer’s page, you’ll be looking for a button that looks like this! You might have to scroll a bit, but each designer will use the same button so you can find it easily.

(This is not an actual button, just an example of what you’re looking for!)

Once you get your freebie, that’s it! Enjoy your pattern!


Next Month’s Pick-Your-Pumpkin CAL

Now, of course, we love free patterns just because we love crochet patterns and free is so kind to our wallets. But, this month, we’re collecting free patterns for a reason.
