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.
This is a very simple, top down shawl, that is shaped like a half hexagon, or in other words, Three Triangles. It's a fabulous stash buster, and you can use any yarn, in any weight, with any gauge that makes you happy. Made in one solid color, it's a great guy's shawl; made with stripes or a self-striping yarn, it's more suited for a woman.
Included in the pattern are some options for getting you started in customizing this shawl to make it your own.
I ask that if you like this shawl pattern, you either make a shawl for charity or donate money to the Alzheimer's Society of America.
Permission is also granted for teachers to use this pattern in a classroom setting as long as all students donate their finished shawl to charity.
Thank you to CollieGrl64, ppremdas, marjos, debspugs, dtf1983, beverlygoulet, Blacky67, pixie56, Marifly, harnish408, cfbandit, and artlikebread for testing this shawl, and for so many of you donating your finished shawls to charity. You are the best as always!
Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please do not sell finished items online without emailing me first.
