In my roundup of ideas for Month of May Crochet, I mentioned that you might want to crochet something inspired by music. That's because May 22nd is Buy a Musical Instrument Day, May 23rd is International Jazz Day and May 25th is Tap Dance Day. Besides, any day is a good day to let music inspire you, right?! You can give the gift of music to others all year long, and since you have the talent of crochet, you can use that to make your musical gift. Here are ten free music crochet patterns.
