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.
The Boomerang Shawl is my latest shawl design. It is constructed from the top down, starting with a long chain, and is written for one size only using the amazing Made In America Florafil Worsted yarn (97% cotton, 3% nylon; 3.5 ounces/100 grams, approximately 200 yards/183 meters; color Chocolate Lily, 2 skeins).
It is rated easy, and uses single and double crochet stitches.
The shape is a bit unusual - it is really a giant L shape. Though I call it a shawl, it's really a giant wrap that you'd wear more like a scarf than a shawl.
Many thanks to my testers, Tajmacaw, mmcrochet, grayhare and sunmoonstars75! And to my tech editor, the amazing Anne McFarland firstname.lastname@example.org.
