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 great ripple afghan, with a little bit of a twist to make it stand out from the rest.
It's named the "Wells Ripple Afghan" because I finished stitching my sample on Wells Beach in Maine while on vacation.
The Wells Ripple Afghan is available in 4 different widths: baby 21" (53.25 cm), small lapghan / toddler sized 36.5" (92.75 cm), small throw / twin sized bed 44" (111.75 cm), large afghan / full sized bed 60" (152.5 cm).
Worsted weight yarn was used; you'll need approximately 850 - 2400 yards (777 - 2195 m) of Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Solids & Twists or any other worsted weight yarn.
