It's Crochet Pattern Release time!
Over the years, I’ve designed blankets specifically for close and extended family and they’ve all been used and loved. This months new release is one I designed for my 3rd daughter. She’s a little farm girl and would move in with my parents if she could just to be on the farm. She loves the cowgirl / country style and I thought this would be perfect for her. Sadly, she didn’t want it because it didn’t have fringe so I started designing a different blanket for her that will be released early next year. Yes, I know I could have added fringe but I loved this one as it was and it all worked out perfectly with a new blanket for her.
That's one of the benefits of loving to make blankets! There is always another one waiting to be created and plenty of family and friends and service opportunities to give them to. In the mean time, I’ll set this one aside for another special person.
This one is worked bottom up and I chose to work over the strands of yarn on each row so there wouldn't be a ton of ends to weave in at the end (my LEAST favorite part of color changing). Of course, I had to add some texture so the borders were the perfect canvas for that. I've included a chart of the checkered heart at the end of the pattern to help keep track of the rows you're working. It comes in handy!
This crochet pattern is an easy to intermedtiate skill level. If' you're familiar with how to crochet post stitches and read patterns, you should be able to work this one.
I hope you'll LOVE the Checkmate Heart Throw and can whip one up for someone you care for this month.
Be sure to Pin this page and share the link with your crochet friends so they can enjoy it too! It REALLY helps me out when you spread the word about my patterns and I appreciate your help!!!
