Before I announce the winner in the Athena’s Elements Yarn Storage Crochet Organizer I want to say Thank You! I can’t tell you how good it made me feel to see so many generous people entering the contest. You entered then told your friends about it so they could have a chance and that was something beautiful to watch!

We can only have one winner in this contest, but I hope the free crochet pattern below will make you feel better. . . Also know, I’m working to get more contests for you, yes, open worldwide, so stay tuned.

The Winner

Our lucky winner is Kalyn Smith!

I sent her an email early this morning to hopefully give her an amazing start to her day! Please take a moment to leave a message for Kalyn in the comments below, there’s magic in sharing joy!

The Pattern

I know its not much a consolation prize, but I hope you’ll enjoy this free crochet pattern. The Arched Mesh Headband is is fun, fast & easy! The best part is, you don’t need a full skein of yarn to make it.

Keeping your hair off your face is a year-round necessity, I know, which is why this band is so perfect. You can wear it wide open to show the mesh detail and have it look more like a kerchief, or you can wear it closed to just look like a headband.

When you make one, please share your best photo on the Facebook Page so others can see. If you’re on Instagram use the hashtag #yocommunity in your post!
