New ideas for your favourite blankets

I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s snowy outside, time to cover up!

While your favorite blankets are your faves for a reason, let’s update them a bit and make them even better. In fact, they’ll be so updated, they’ll be like whole new blankets. However, they will still retain the best of what you love about them the most. Moreover, the mods will leave you room to customize, so that you will definitely make each of these your very own creation. That said, we are also cognizant of the beginners in our midst, so that you too will be able to engage and complete each of these project. Not only will you get a lovely blanket, but you will definitely grow your crochet chops.
