I love that we live in a country that celebrates different cultures. One of my favorite ways to do this is through the Cinco de Mayo Celebrations.
Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
I love the traditional celebratory activities such as parades, food, music and dancing. We celebrate the holiday every year even though we have no links through our heritage. We have many friends that we can rely on for the true experience.
Cinco de Mayo Crochet Patterns you are going to LOVE
Let’s bring our beloved craft of crochet to the festivities through this fun and colorful pattern round up.
Many of us are stuck and home and some of our yarn stashes are running a little low. But, most of the featured patterns (except the colorful blanket) uses minimal amounts of yarn and would be quick to work up. Therefore, there are no excuses, create some fun way to celebrate the Mexican Holiday.
Seriously! This is a must have, my son even said "Mom, you must make that". I am not sure if I like the sombrero or the mustache more! This is the perfect center piece for the entry way table or to set out next to the Mexican spread of food.
I really wish I would have seen this pattern when my daughter was younger. The Beautiful Mexican dancing girls are so cute with their traditional dress and flowers that adorn their hair. This pattern is available in English and Spanish.
Cinco de Mayo is surrounded by the upbeat tunes of a Mariachi Band and this blanket says just that. The bold and bright flowers next to the classic hot peppers and a guitar. I love everything about this fun pattern.
Seriously the cutest little hat! This baby hat would be darling for a first photo shoot or to just wear for the special occasion. This could also be a very cute topper for a jar (wide mouth) of homemade canned salsa!
My favorite fruit to add to any Mexican meal. We are huge fans of Avocado and eat them every chance we get. This is a fun Cinco de Mayo pattern or would be fun to add to your children's play kitchen as well.
