I’m pointing my spotlight on Kathy Lashley from Elk Studio this week for my Designers Corner, Kathy has been crocheting for over 30 years, she is also
an Annie’s instructor and has done an instructional video for left handed
crocheters, check out some of her beautiful designs with the links below.
Here is my Afghan square free crochet pattern, it’s been a busy week but
finally I have made this simple easy design, I love the raised stitch effect
which gives a lovely textured finish, it’s also super quick to crochet.
Make several of them and sew together to use for lots of projects, such as
cushion covers, blankets, tea cozy’s, placemats, coasters, bags etc.
Gorgeous crochet 12 inch square which can be used for blankets, table mats
or to put under your indoor plant pots etc. Made in Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice,
a thick and soft yarn, ideal for this pattern, this one is made in four colors,
it would also look nice in one color, there are many available. It’s a very easy
and quick to work up design.
Crochet throws are a lovely accessory to your furniture, they can add real
style to any sofa or chair, just drape a throw across the back of the seat to
decorate and add color to your room. Take it off the seat, throw it over yourself
and snuggle up on the sofa to keep warm on those winter evenings. They are
also good for housewarming presents too.
This staggered square stitch is created over 2 rows and when crocheted
looks stunning, I have added a pictorial to today’s post for you to see how Pattern Row 2 is made step by step, If you would like to make something
with this stitch I have put a link below to a free baby blanket I have designed
using the staggered square design. See my Stitch Category for more stitches.
