I am SO excited I can finally show you what I've been working on over the summer! It's been a while since I've released any major crochet patterns and this is why. If you've followed me for at least the past year, you know that I've enjoyed creating crochet pattern collections for the home. Since I learned to crochet 30+ years ago, making afghans has been my passion. I just love everything about them! I love that you can give them to family and friends and they can wrap up in warmth knowing you put your heart and soul into making them something special.
The past 2 years, I wanted more than just the afghans though. I love seeing throws nicely set over couches or placed across beds. But then what? How do you coordinate it with everything else?
What goes better with a beautiful crocheted throw than pillows?
What you get in the Queen of Hearts
One of my favorite stitches to work is the Tarfaya stitch which I came across in my Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia book. I call it the "Loop the Loop" stitch. It gives such a cool look to projects and the texture is fun to play with!
New Loop the Loop Cowl Crochet Pattern
When I designed the Loop the Loop Boot Cuff crochet pattern, I knew I wanted a cowl to coordinate with them. I actually designed the cowl not long after, worked up the sample and shipped it off to a photographer. She ended up moving to another state and it must have been misplaced in the move. The pattern was pushed aside until now. I love how it turned out and that it can easily be worked to the length and width that each of us enjoy!

Classic Cable Chevron Afghan
Here's the thing... I rarely make the same thing more than once. I have so many ideas in my head for new designs that I'm afraid if I started making something a 2nd time, I'd drag my feet wishing I could be creating something new. I think she actually laughed at me when I told her I'd design her a new afghan but wouldn't make the one she wanted.
Hey there! Thank you for joining my blog here at Crafting Friends Designs. Grab your hook, some yarn and get comfy as we crochet some fun, unique and beautiful projects together.
I'm Kate and crochet is my passion. I've been crocheting for 30+ years and as you can see from the selection of designs on my site, blankets are my obsession. I absolutely love creating something that will wrap my love around friends and family when they're in need of comfort.
Having 4 beautiful girls of my own has also inspired many infant, toddler and child size dresses. They are my biggest cheerleaders and have enjoyed wearing the things I've made them.
