To start off 2024, my friends and I are hosting a $2.00 pattern sale from now through January 21. The discount code is valid for all patterns from January 8-21, which means you do not have to follow a traditional blog hop this month or wait to get the patterns. Grab the ones you want, when you want!
The Trading Grannies Square works up really quickly and was quite fun to design. Each round is half the traditional granny stitch and half solid double crochets. And then from time to time, you'll "trade" which set of stitches comes first!
My friend Helen from Sunflower Cottage Crochet invited me to participate in the Preemie Crochet Challenge again this year, and of course I agreed! My niece was a micro-preemie born at 24 weeks gestation, so this event has a special place in my heart. (Plus I love designing baby things even though it really isn't in my normal niche of pattern designs!)
My husband loves to watch Three's Company reruns, and has been asking me to make him a blanket to match Jack's apartment. I knew he was going to see his blanket! You can choose any colors you would like to make your own Throwback Throw Blanket. You'll want to make sure you have enough of one color to join all of your pieces with the Double Crochet Join method.
My Bubbly Bobble Blanket resides on the back of my couch-which-doubles-as-my-office-chair and has made many an appearance in Zoom meetings. This blanket uses bulky (5) weight yarn and a 6mm hook. It has easy to follow repeats which are the perfect balance to give you easy mindless project that won't get boring. The pattern contains full color tutorial photos for the special stitches used as well!
The Woven Winter Blanket is the perfect pattern to make yourself something cozy this winter. It 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.
My friends at Sunflower Cottage Crochet hold this special event every year, and I am honored to be able to participate once again in the Preemie Crochet Challenge. I have even created a few video tutorials on my new Rumble channel to help you with the techniques used. The Nautical NICU Blanket is full of fun texture
