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 Cyclone Popsicle Shawl - so named because it looks like a Cyclone Popsicle! Create your very own Popsicle shawl!
Pattern is written for two sizes:
size small: 22" deep by 50" across
size large 26" deep by 60" across
With notes for making a larger version, if desired. Sample was made using Lion Brand LB 1878 and hand dyed, but you can make this shawl using any fingering weight yarn. Shawl is made top down.
Pattern uses a variety of stitches: double crochet, treble crochet, clusters, V stitches, and picots, and design is rated intermediate but is within grasp of the adventurous beginner crocheter!
