Ganchillo en Mayo

Feliz Cinco de Mayo everybody!

May 5th is a holiday that commemorates Mexico's victory over France in the Battle of Puebla in 1862.  To many, though, it is simply a day of festivity and a celebration of Mexican culture.

In keeping with the holiday, I wanted to crochet something fun.  I decided on a piñata.  This little guy isn't for smashing, though - he's just a decoration.

He didn't turn out quite as I'd pictured him, so there will be a second rendition one of these days.  Still, he's festive on this happy holiday and he's a hit with the kids.

Some piñata fun facts:
Here are some festive & free patterns:

Happy May 5th and Happy Crocheting!
