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.
Simply EZ PZ Shawl is a quick little shawl to knit. It is a shallow, triangle shape.
It starts at the top, and stitches are increased. Working in stockinette stitch, the shawl quickly begins to grow in size. At any point, you can begin the simple lace section (which has both written directions and a chart), and repeat the lace as many rows as you like - making this shawl a great gift item, and it's also great to use up as much of the precious skein as possible!
Designer used a vintage, tweed, 100% fingering weight wool (blue sample in photos), approximately 440 yards per 100 grams, and size 8 needles. Any yarn can be used with success! Blue sample used less than 100 grams and measures 25" deep by 80" across after heavy blocking.
Brown version was made with an aran weight yarn, Elann.com Limited Edition Picasso, and size 11 needles. Less than 3 skeins were used, and the sample measures 20" deep by 75" across, after light blocking.
