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.
Why the name Guile? As always, I struggle with coming up with names. Hubby always tries to help, but he kept coming up with pattern names I've already used... Hmm... Well, I decided to be cunning and searched the dictionary, and guile popped up... And thus another pattern was born.
Guile is a beautiful two color shawl, designed specifically to showcase the gorgeous hand dyed Dream in Color Perfectly Posh Single yarns that I used.
Guile is made starting at the bottom edge of the shawl and worked its way up towards the neck, and then the edging is worked top down. The easy single crochet body is the perfect TV watching, children chasing or travel project, easy to put down, and with no counting needed.
Guile is written for one size, but it is easy enough to customize the size by adding additional body or border rows.
Pattern is 4 pages long, including the cover photo page.
