There’s no reason anyone should be bored during the month of July because, you guessed it, it’s National Anti-Boredom month! Grab your knitting or crocheting needles and let’s get crafting!
Celebrate this unofficial yet merriment holiday for the second year in a row, thanks to the Craft Yarn Council, by making some handmade food-related projects for yourself and others. From a sprinkled cupcake hat to a dreamsicle designed scarf, your next knitted/crocheted ensemble will not only look yummy, but very fashionable as well. Us here at AllFreeKnitting.com and AllFreeCrochet.com are more than pumped for this month, which will be full of new projects and creative ideas. Nothing says a relaxing and fun afternoon like having your needles in hand and creative juices flowing from left to right.
So, rather than sitting in front of your TV all day twiddling your thumbs, call up your knitting/crocheting squad and whip up a batch of delicious designs!

Just because it’s summertime, doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on creating your winter accessories. The number of food patterns related to knitting and crocheting are endless. There’s nothing better than having your head kept toasty warm with an adorably delicious looking hamburger hat. If you’re looking for something a bit more bold and bright, this salt water taffy hat will sure turn heads as you’re out and about.
