Sweet Little Granny Square Baby Blanket- FREE Crochet Pattern

My friend Helen from Sunflower Cottage Crochet invited me to participate in the Preemie Crochet Challenge again this year, and of course I agreed!

Pattern Release: the Dolphins and Diamonds Shawl

The Dolphins and Diamonds Shawl uses the filet crochet technique as well as my signature Dolphin Stitch and works up quickly. This is a great pattern to work on when you have a few distractions but don't want to be bored from the monotony of the same stitch over and over again. My testers enjoyed working on their shawls and loved the results, which means you are going to love working on and wearing this design too!

Moguls Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

The texture of the stitches creates little bumps inside the triangles which reminded me of moguls on ski slopes! Once you get the stitch combination committed to your memory, this scarf works up super fast as well. I designed the Moguls Scarf using Lion Brand Ferris Wheel yarn in the Imaginary Garden colorway. I love crocheting with the Ferris Wheel line of yarns because the yarn is made specifically for crocheting and the colorways are all SO gorgeous!
