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 Strawberry Lemonade Scarf is a lace crocheted scarf, written for fingering weight yarn, in 3 widths. I hand dyed the yarn with Kool Aide, using "strawberry" and "lemonade" flavors, hence the name.
Designer used LB 1878, a 100% fingering weight wool on a cone, 2045 yards, 500 grams, that was hand dyed with Kool Aide, and a size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook.
Three widths, before blocking:
small 8.5" wide by desired length
medium 11.5" wide by desired length
large 14.5" wide by desired length
A total of 580 yards / 141 grams were used for the largest size sample measuring 16" after blocking and 60" in length.
Stitches used are single crochet, double crochet, and clusters.
Pattern includes a hand drawn chart.
Thanks to ppremdas, Blacky67, KinnicChick, firecrystal, CymraesCrochet, honeystalks, pixie56, wildthing1058, tdd, pandastamper, and MandyS2 for their test crocheting skills. A HUGE thank you to CymraesCrochet for her hand drawn chart!
