A Free Crochet Pattern
I designed this pattern a while back, but never got the time to get actually write it out. So, I’ve just been hanging on to it with the intention of posting it later in the year. But, a few weeks ago, I decided I wanted to go a head and post it. Half the year is over already and before you know, it will be Fall.
The yarn I used came with my very first Knitcrate box. For those who don’t know, Knitcrate is a monthly yarn subscription club. They send you 2 skeins of premium yarn every month for the price of $24.99. It may seem high to some, but yarn of this quality usually runs from$20 to $30 a skein! So, it really is reasonable. Plus, each crate comes with extras, like stitch markers or bags. And, every crate comes with patterns for both knitting and crochet that have been made with that months yarn selection. I love Knitcrate, and if you are interested in seeing what it is about you can use my referral link and try your first month for $5! HTTP://RWRD.IO/K69Q10Q
The yarn that came with my first Knitcrate was Knitologie Glowing. It was a pretty blue made from wool and silk, and it was so soft I could wait to work with it. I really need to order more before they run out of stock.
