Hello my friend, and a belated Happy New Year!
I'll be honest, 2022 is not off to a great start here at Straight Hooked Headquarters. Earlier this month we had to say goodbye to our oldest furbaby. Biscuit was 15 years old and the best little dog ever. My mom got him for me after my dad passed away, and he helped me grieve the loss of my dad, and a few years later, my mother as well. To say it has been hard trying to grieve his loss without him here to comfort me is a massive understatement. If you are a pet parent, go hug your furbaby tightly and remind them how much they are loved.
But enough about my gloom. I have the first pattern release of 2022 ready to share with you!
The Woven Winter Blanket is the sister pattern to the Woven Winter Pillow which I released late last year, and I know you are going to love both of these patterns!
I used Brava 500, courtesy of WeCrochet to make my design samples, and I absolutely LOVED working with this yarn. If you'd like to get some for yourself, you can use my affiliate link HERE to order.
The Woven Winter Blanket is the perfect pattern to make yourself something cozy this winter. I don't know about you, but my husband loves to strike up a conversation while I am crocheting. I try to design patterns that will be easy to repeat once you get through the first few rows, mainly because it is really hard to write complex patterns in the middle of a convo with my spouse!
This project is no different; once you get the hang of it and the repeats you will be able to work on your blanket through any distraction!
The Woven Winter Blanket pattern is featured as part of the Crochet 4 Me blog hop and bundle event, hosted by my friend Debbie from Madame Stitch. If you have missed a few patterns in the hop, or are like me and too impatient to wait each day for the new pattern, you can grab all of the patterns at once when you purchase the Crochet 4 Me e-book. As an added bonus, when you use my affiliate link to purchase the e-book, I will give you my Woven Winter Pillow pattern for free!
The Woven Winter Blanket pattern is available by itself, or you can choose to purchase the Woven Winter Bundle which includes both the Woven Winter Blanket and the Woven Winter Pillow patterns at a discounted price vs. buying individually.
