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!

I believe that this is the easiest blanket I've ever designed! I made it the first time for my grandsons Christmas present. It is absolutely the most softest blanket on the planet, that is when you use the Fleece Yarn. The stitch placement may be somewhat difficult at first, because of the bulky yarn, but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it after awhile. I used a very basic double crochet for this piece, so it's SUPER EASY!!!
I know you're just going to be thrilled with it!
FYI, it's the perfect blanket for a new baby:-)
