Pattern Release: the Throwback Throw Blanket

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.

Pattern Release: the Snuggly Sprinkles Scarf

This pattern was fun and fast to work up, and my testers loved it almost as much as I did! I know not everyone is a tassel person (honestly, I never was much of a fan of tassels myself until recently), so they are optional of course, but I suggest you give it a try- you might change your mind about tassels like I did!You will need a 5.5mm crochet hook for this project. This is another pattern with simple enough repeats to crochet among distractions, yet just complex enough to keep you from getting bored.

Pattern Release: The Candy Cane Cowl

My new Candy Cane Cowl pattern is great for an intermediate crocheter. It can be a little bit tricky to get started, but once you get the hang of it, the cowl will work up very quickly. You will want to grab your favorite DK (3 weight) yarn in 2 colors and a 5mm crochet hook, plus you will want to have at least 2 stitch markers handy for this project. I used KnitPicks Swish DK, courtesy of WeCrochet for my design sample.

Pattern Release: the Woven Winter Pillow

This pillow rocks! The texture is great, and the prefabricated pillow form I purchased at the Walmart fits snugly inside which makes the pillow fluffier and stiffer than the rest of our old throw pillows that we have loved maybe a little too much over the years. You will need 3 colors of your favorite worsted yarn. I used KnitPicks Brava, courtesy of WeCrochet. You will also need a pillow form. I purchased a 2 pack from Walmart for about $10.00.

Pattern Release: the Diamond Drape Shawl

As soon as I opened my package of City Tweed DK yarn from KnitPicks, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. This soft yarn was begging to be made into an ultra-wide shawl, with just enough ventilation to allow me to breathe but not become too chilly. This meant it was time to try my hand at designing something with the filet crochet technique.
