I am a crafter/artisan and have been honing my skills for the past 45+ years. My first love is crochet. I've taught myself many different crafts over the years, but my passion is crochet. I learned how to crochet from a real pro, my grandma, when I was 9 years old. I've been in the craft business for about 30 years. I owned a brick & mortar shop, but the overhead became too much for me so I decided to put my business online. I was the owner of Jewels Designs, Connie's PDF Patterns & Connie's Custom Crochet. I closed Jewels Designs a few years ago, I still have Facebook Fan pages for Connie's PDF Pattern & Connie's Custom Crochet. I currently have an Etsy Shop (Connie's Crochet Gifts and a Storenvy Shop (Connie's Graphs). I'm currently teaching a crochet course and have 2 Blogs. You can also find me on Pinterest & Linkedin, just google Connie's....
Check them out when you get a chance. Coming in 2015 I will be opening, Connie's By The Yard Trims.
I love helping and promoting my fellow artisan's and their beautiful work. I do a lot of this cross-promoting on my face book pages and blogs, so look me up any time.
I love creating new patterns and hope to bring them to you for another 45 years!
Thank You for allowing me to bring my love of crafts to you and to Craftsy!

This is a beautiful pattern of a blanket I designed years ago. It's an American Flag in all its glory! I've been crocheting for the past 40+ years and have been designing my own pieces for about 30 years. I've also been selling my creations for about that long. I recently started selling my patterns, because I've receive a ton of requests from my fellow crocheters. The pattern I'm offering here comes with complete instructions and a photo of the finished piece. The stitches are not complicated (in my opinion), but it can get a little complicated when you add the stars to the blue field. You must follow the photo exactly for the placement of the stars. Other than that I loved making this blanket, and I've made and sold a few of them over the years. I'm sure you'll enjoy creating America The Beautiful, as much as I do. Happy Crocheting!
