Celebrating Crochet with a Positive Spin

It’s Been A While…

on July 13, 2016

The last time I posted was back in May… two whole months ago. You may have been wondering what I’ve been doing (or not, which is cool). Well, the reason I haven’t had time to post to the blog is that I was busy creating several new crochet patterns for Cascade Yarns – six new patterns, to be exact. In fact, the first pattern of the six has been published already. It is the Blue Skies Baby Blanket in Anthem by Cascade Yarns. It is a great baby blanket with texture created using post stitches. The name of the blanket was inspired by the name of the yarn. With a yarn called “Anthem,” what can you do but reference a song in your pattern name 🙂

The blanket is shown as a single color project, but it can easily be adapted for stripes or a multi-color rainbow look. It is all up to you!

As other new patterns are released from Cascade, I’ll talk about them here. Thanks again to Cascade Yarns, for providing free pattern downloads to crocheters!

What have you been busy stitching? Let me know in the comments below.

    That blanket looks really snuggly. 😊
