"The airy and delicate Chocolette shawl begins at the narrow tip and grows into a beautiful accent piece which can be made as small or large as you wish. The design uses the simplest crochet stitches: single crochet (and its variations) and chains combined into three textured stitch patterns, which are fun and easy to make."

Pattern: Jasper Blanket by Linda Whaley

Yarn: Appalachian Baby by Appalachian Baby Design


"Simple knit and purl patterns are placed in block stripes across the blanket and surrounded by a simple garter stitch border. If you can cast on, knit, purl and cast off you will be able to knit this blanket.

This knitting pattern includes four blanket sizes - a small square baby blanket that is perfect for small babies, buggies and car seats, and a longer rectangular baby blanket that is great for older babies at bedtime. The medium and large throws/afghans are perfect for cosy family snuggles on the sofa."

Pattern: Anthology Throw by Helen Stewart

Yarn: Simply Spectacular DK by Emma's and Smooshy Cashmere by Dream in Color


"The Anthology Throw is a circular, Pi-inspired project, big and versatile enough to work as a blanket or a generous wrap.Drape it over the couch for epic snuggle sessions or double it up into an extra-cosy shawl. Its sheer scale may seem daunting, but trust me, it’s so easy and comforting to make! Just knit, knit, knit in a circle, with eyelet rounds for increases and interest and a simple chevron lace border."

Our friend, Cheryl, knit her Anthology using various yarns by Dream in Color and Emma's.
