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.

So, here are two separate patterns, one for a blanket, the other for a stitch that is used to crochet it.   Does this mean that these projects are so hard you have to split them into multiple patterns? Nothing is further from the truth. Take a look.
The Michele Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

The Michele blanket is a easy project with beautiful, broad swaths of color, here in modified earth tones that beautifully complement a pale interior. This blanket works up quickly and is a breeze to finish off. Make once, and enjoy forever. This is one of those patterns.
