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 simple, lacy shawl, that is feminine without being too frilly. You can use any weight yarn, using any gauge that makes you happy, & easily make the scarf as big or as long as you like.
It was designed for a self striping yarn, & the scarf is made in such a way to showcase the yarn, but any yarn will work nicely.
There are two versions of the scarf available: a simple, straightforward pattern, using standard US terms, or one that includes a photo tutorial for crocheting the border.
Many thanks to my testers, QueenE79, korina, laurie2011, Mummybrain, signjojo, & kolyok28. Thank you Susan Moskwa (http://rogueedits.com) for her wonderful tech editing skills. This pattern would not have been possible without all of you.
Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please
do not sell finished items online. If making for charity, please let me know the name of the charity & include my contact info with the item (http://anastaciaknits.net).
