My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
This is a very easy, beginner friendly shawl. Design is made sideways, then turned to work the edging, & can be made any size using any yarn / hook / gauge. Shawl can be made any size.
Both the body & the edging is fully charted.
Sample was made using Loops & Threads Santa Fe Striped Roving, a discontinued, worsted weight, self striping yarn. Any yarn can be substituted, in any weight.
Many thanks to June Gilbank (http://www.planetjune.com) for her tech editing/charting skills. Thanks to colliegrl64, PrincessPa, troubleagain, taraliddicoat, Flametide, pixie56, and Pheebs13 for their test crocheting skills!! And thanks again to pixie56 for coming up with the brilliant name. This pattern would not have been possible without all of you.
Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please
do not sell finished items online. If making for charity, please let me know the name of the charity & include my contact info with the item (http://anastaciaknits.net / anastaciaknits on Ravelry).
