Thankful for Snuggles
I love snuggles! I love being able to snuggle little babies to let them know they're safe and loved. I love being able to snuggle a sick child, not that I love them being sick but I love being able to comfort them and let them know that I care about them and hope they get better.
For many years, I was a single mom and it could be a very lonely feeling at times. When the time was right, I met the man I knew I was supposed to be with and we got married. It's nice now to be able to just snuggle on the couch and watch a movie together and know that he loves me and our kids.
I've also been able to watch my nieces and nephews over the years and loved snuggling with them to get them to take a nap or settle down to watch a movie. I have made each of them a blanket so they could snuggle in that whenever they needed comforted.
Note to self: I think I still need to make my last nephew a blanket. I see another new blanket afghan in the works!
As I've mentioned many times, handmade afghans are my way of offering comfort and love to my family and friends in their times of need. For today's $1 pattern, I chose the Braided Cable Chevron Afghan. I love the simplicity of the cable climbing the peeks of the chevron.

Classic Cable Chevron Afghan
4 years ago, my youngest sister asked me to make an afghan that she could give her mother in law for Christmas. I had designed the Ribbon Candy Afghan for her son a year or so before and she wanted me to make another one.
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.
Little did I know... this new afghan I'd be designing would become one of my best selling crochet patterns. Hundreds and hundreds of crocheters have already enjoyed this pattern and I hope you'll enjoy it too! **Limited time** special on the Classic Cable Chevron Afghan pattern below.
There is something about the teal color family that just soothes my emotions. It's just so peaceful and pretty and brings clarity to my mind. Chevrons are one of my favorite patterns to crochet so combining the 2 was a natural process for me.
I hope you'll enjoy this free Sea Breeze Chevron Afghan crochet pattern and be able to find a little peace of your own!
