Starlight Chevron release and the new Love my Garden Chevron Afghan Crochet Pattern Collection

I'm excited to finally release the Starlight Chevron Afghan crochet pattern!  This is another fun textured design that will make wonderful Baby Shower gifts!  Like the others, the stars in this are worked right into the pattern so you don't have to worry about stitching them all on later.  Worked in Blues and Yellows for a night time gaze at the stars or in Red, White and Blue for a fun patriotic version, this blanket is great for nurseries and even photography props.  

I chose to use Vanna's Choice yarn for this design because it holds the shape of the stars well and had the perfect colors for the night sky.  

The Starlight Chevron Afghan crochet pattern is now available on my website and is on sale through 3/22/16.http://www.craftingfriendsdesigns.com/store/p259/Starlight_Chevron_Afghan_crochet_pattern.html


With each new release, I've been asked by many of you if I would release them in a collection.  Now that the 4th design is complete, I've set up the Love my Garden collection for you.  This is a great way to get all 4 stunning designs for one great price!  Each pattern is listed for $5.95 individually or you can enjoy the full collection for only $12.95.  

I have some more ideas in the works to continue this collection but it is going to take some time to get them JUST right :)

Thank you all so much for your many wonderful compliments as these 4 patterns have been released.  I appreciate your love and support and look forward to working with you more!

Enjoy a Day of Relaxation with the New Sea Breeze Chevron Afghan Crochet Pattern

Ready or not, spring is on it's way! We've enjoyed some nice spring weather here in Utah this past week.  It's been mostly sunny with a few spring rain showers and has been wonderful.  When flowers start popping up in our yard, we all get excited to spend time outside.  

With the change of seasons comes a change in afghan designs.  I am a HUGE afghan fan and love to have them around.  It could be the middle of summer and I will still wrap up in a blanket at night while sitting out under the stars. 

I hope you'll enjoy my new Sea Breeze Chevron Afghan crochet pattern.  It was worked with Red Heart Super Saver yarn that I had in my stash and came together quite nicely.  I love the colors Real Teal and Jade together!  Such a relaxing combination.
