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.
Triple Scoop Shawl is an easy, top down knitted shawl, made with three triangles. The resulting shape is more like a three-quartered square, than a triangle shape, which means this shawl will sit on your shoulders and stay put! You can use any yarn, any gauge, and make the shawl any size.
Pattern is rated easy, and includes written directions only.
You need approximately 150-300 grams of scrap yarn in various amounts, all a uniform weight (reserve largest ball of scrap yarn for edging and bind off). Sample was made using primarily worsted weight wool yarn (with some fingering weight wools held double).
Sample measured 20" deep and 70" at widest point (50 cm by 178 cm) after light blocking.
