It’s easy to remember the big holidays to crochet for: Christmas is always December 25th, Thanksgiving is the third Thursday in November, Halloween is October 31st, Valentine’s Day is February 14th, and so on. But it can be hard to keep up with all the smaller holidays, such as National Women’s Day (March 8), Star Wars Day (May 4), Left Hander’s Day (august 13), National Bosses Day (October 16), and Best Friend’s Day, which happens to be this Sunday, June 8.
There are many ways you can celebrate National Best Friend Day this year including spending time with your best friend or getting in touch with someone you may have lost touch with over the years. Of course, you can always celebrate this special day by crocheting your best friend a gift, as well.
There’s no better gift to give than a homemade one. If you’d like to make something extra special for your best friend this year, scroll down for a list of our favorite crochet patterns for best friends.
