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 top down, any weight / any gauge shawl and can be made any size. The shape is a half circle.
Sample was made using Joann's Sensations Caribbean yarn, (56% cotton, 38% acrylic, 6% polyester 6 ounces (170 grams), 465 yards (425 meters), worsted weight yarn), approximately 4 ounces total were used. You will need between 300-600 yards of yarn.
You will also need a size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook, & removable stitch marker.
