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.
Hawaiian Sea Glass Shawl is a top down, crescent shaped half circle shawl, crocheted out of Noro Taiyo Sock Yarn (50% cotton, 17% wool, 17% nylon, 16% silk), 100 grams (3.5 ounces), 420 meters (460 yards). My testers thought the colors of the shawl reminded them of sea glass, and others thought of Hawaii, and thus the name of the shawl was born.
One skein is needed for size small or two skeins for size large, and a size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook. There are also instructions included for how to make the shawl even larger if desired or using a finer weight yarn.
Finished measurements after blocking:
o Size small (measures 20" deep by 40" across top edge)
o Size large (measures 21.5" by 50" across top edge)
Stitches used are chains, single and double crochet, and clusters, and this pattern is rated intermediate. My testers all say that this design takes a little more thought than my "usual" patterns, but is a very fun & enjoyable crochet.
Many thanks to my pattern testers, marjos, debspugs, ppremdas, firecrystal, GalFridayCrochet, grenru, csinygirl, and KinnicChick, and to Anne McFarland firstname.lastname@example.org for her tech editing skills.
As always this pattern wouldn't be possible without you.
