The new knit lazy cable blanket is true to its name. The ambling cables twist their way slowly across the blanket to add fantastic texture without a lot of work.
The afghan includes full written instructions as well as a chart.
Using super bulky yarn, this blanket works up super quick.

The Rainbow Baby Blanket is now a free pattern with a video tutorial to go with it!
The open shell stitch creates a wonderful texture any baby will love to grab on to.
The second free pattern was something I asked my Facebook followers about.
I’ve been reading some articles where NICUs are using crochet octopuses to comfort the babies. They believe the tentacles remind the baby of being in the womb with the umbilical cord. Plus the tentacles keep the baby from pulling on the wires they might have connected to their tiny bodies. It is really amazing!
Facebook said, “YES!” when I asked if they would like a pattern and video to help support, so here it is. Of course, I’m not a medical expert, so ask your local hospital if they would like these before donating.
Bonus use though: my cats love this! It’s made in one full piece so no worry of the tentacles coming loose.
I’ve added a couple new free pattern tutorials and a special tutorial all about gauge!
The My Flower Garden Scarf and…
the My Butterfly Scarf are now free!
These two cute scarves are the perfect accessories for fun-loving little girls.
If you are still trying to understand gauge, what it is, why is important, why is it on a yarn ball band, how do I get it?
This video tutorial will cover all of that. This video will teach you all about gauge, so your next project will fit perfectly.
The High Fidelity Cowl is not from the 8 One Skein Cowl ebook I’m converting into free patterns. It is a part of the paid to free project I told you previously about.
It is, instead, a part of the paid to free project I told you previously about.
Either way, it’s free!
This cowl is fun because you can really customize it by making the stripes in any color you like.
I call this motif the cobweb because it reminds me a cobweb in it’s design. The motif uses back post double crochet to create the color bursts and cobweb effect. I used varigated yarn, but you can change up the pattern with solid colors (black and grey would be a great Halloween blanket).
I go through the back post double crochet very slowly, so if you’ve never tried this stitch before, this is a great tutorial to finally try a post stitch.
The Lily Pad Motif, is a great 3 dimensional motif that uses the popular crocodile stitch to make the petals of the flower.
The free video tutorial will show you exactly how to make the crocodile stitch, which is deceptively simple.
I really like this new motif. The flower has a 3D effect that is really cool.
Plus there is no sewing!
The square is crocheted right into the flower.
It’s actually quite easy, especially with the free video tutorial.
The newest Learn A Stitch Washcloth is an interesting and easy variation of the half double crochet stitch.
The piggyback stitch is aptly named because one half double piggybacks onto another to create this unique texture.
The video will walk you through the piggyback process while making a useful washcloth.
