Moon Garland ♥ Crochet Pattern

Moon Cycle Garland Crochet Pattern
This year, October will be having not one but two full moons! One already happened on October 1 and another will be happening on October 31, the blue moon. In honor, of this rare moon cycle, I wanted to create a moon garland. Originally, I wanted to crochet every phase of the moon but I thought there would be too many moons and the garland might look too crowded so I decided to just make a full, half, and crescent moon. You can always crochet the rest of the moons and just use this pattern as a guide. 

If you end up making this project you can post it up on Ravelry or tag me @mooeyandfriends and @mooeyscrochet so I can see how your garland turned out.

If you would like to tip me for making this crochet pattern available for free, you can leave a tip on my Kofi page. All tips are appreciated!

    1. While I was searching whether or not there was a crocheted garland I found that a lot of moon garlands are unnecessarily expense. Which is ridiculous because they're so easy to make! All you need is circles! haha ♥

    1. YES! You should learn how to crochet. I have a video on my Youtube on how to crochet if you want to learn. I also have a couple videos with tips on crocheting for beginners if you're interested. Good luck! ♥
