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 crochet afghan / blanket pattern, written for four sizes:
preemie 24" by 24"
small lapghan / toddler sized 32" by 32"
small afghan (twin sized bedspread) 49" by 72"
large afghan (full sized bedspread) 60" by 84"
Afghan requires Red Heart Super Saver yarn, 100% acrylic worsted weight yarn, 7 ounces (198 grams), 364 yards (334 meters), 2 (3,6,7) skeins needed.
If you prefer to use a "one pound" skein of yarn such as Caron's One Pound, you need 1 (1, 3, 4) skeins to complete the afghan.
You also need a size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook, or hook size to get gauge.
Pattern uses single crochet, double crochet, and cluster stitches.
