CROCHET - Hearts & Flowers Mandala Afghan

Hearts and Flowers in time for Valentine's day, or complete one for the next girl baby in your family! The inspiration was the cute Layered Daisy in a Heart Pattern by the talented Lorene Haythorn Eppolite of Cre8tiionCrochet.com which I imagined I would make several hundred times and sew together to make a blanket.... oooh, sounds like a LOT of work. This is a simpler idea, which takes Lorene's design (with her permission, of course!) of a flower that morphs into a heart shape and turns the heart into a circle, and then the circle into a square! 16 squares make up this 48" x 48" afghan, before the final border. 

Crochet - Winter's Armor Cabled Scarf

Crochet cables and textural surface make this scarf interesting as well as super warm. Looks great on the Wrong Side, too! Crocheted with Size H (5.0mm) hook and Worsted weight yarn, finished size is 7" x 80", suitable for adults and teens, and long enough to be wrapped around twice.

​Crochet - Winter's Armor Cabled Hat

Crochet the hat that matches the Winter's Armor Cabled Scarf, made with worsted/aran wool and size H (5.0mm) hook, fits adult/teen. Can be made smaller or larger by changing the hook size.
