It’s time to get cute and cozy with the Briar Rose Baby Blanket, a free crochet pattern with CoCo Crochet Lee and WeCrochet!
I am so excited to announce that I’ve teamed up with WeCrochet (the crochet offshoot of Knit Picks) as a Brand Ambassador! What does that mean for you? That means that WeCrochet is providing support so that I can bring you amazing free crochet patterns that you can enjoy!
The first step for me was to choose my first yarn to work with from the WeCrochet Site, www.crochet.com – and it was SO hard to choose! There are so many amazing choices, it was tough to settle on one and begin!
I went with the Upcycle Reserve Collection after reading about it on the site. These special, single batch skeins give yarn a second life, creating complex heathers and saving fibers that would have otherwise gone to waste. This 2-ply 100% wool yarn is bouncy with beautiful stitch definition and next-to-skin softness. We love it for rugged heirloom sweaters and cozy, chunky accessories. Each color is available for a limited time, so grab some while you can!
I’m a big fan of chunky yarn, and have used it to make The Valentine Puppy, The Valentine Kitty, and the Caitlin Headband patterns! It makes whipping up a quick gift super fast, which can be a life-saver!

When I end the 2nd row I ended with a v stitch chain one skip one DC for last stitch. When I turn to start 3rd row I don’t have a CLUSTER. I have a v stitch. 🤔 I’m confused. What did I do wrong.
HI 🙂 The KnitPicks set looks great!!!!
Also, do you have a stitch multiple for the pattern? xo
I would really love Furls hooks but I also like any wooden hook. This is a very exciting giveaway.
I can’t decide. Both sets look great! The wooden hooks are unique and beautiful, though!
Excited about the Caspien Wooden Crochet Hooks ! Never used a wooden hook before !
Wow! What a great looking baby blanket. I would like to try the comfort color hooks.. sometimes my finger joints hurt a bit after using the thin metal hooks. I’m ready to stop working and make that blanket!
The colourful crochet hooks would be wonderful to use.
This is such an adorable baby blanket which I am looking forward to trying.
The wooden crochet hooks look very elegant and a nice size for travel.
Beautiful blanket! I love how the pink border pops! Personally, I would choose the Colorful Crochet Hooks, because of my Rheumatoid Arthritis I need the larger handles.
I’d love to try some wooden hooks, I never have before!
I must agree with everyone else, in that the wooden hooks sound really amazing, however, I need something with a larger handle, so I would have to go with the coloured ones unless of course, the wooden one’s handles are around the same circumference. The pattern looks really nice too, I like the colours 🙂
I’d be most excited to try the Colourful Crochet Hooks.
I have not had a chance to even try a wooden hook, so the Caspian wooden hooks would be awesome!
Thanks for the giveaway. I would love to try the wooden hooks. I love the blanket and those colors together.
Love wooden hooks, but would be excited to win the Colourful Hooks as my arthritis is in full swing. Beautiful pattern, can’t wait to try it!
Love the Caspian crochet hooks! 😀
Oh, would love to try the Caspian wooden hooks!
Thanks for the contest.
This pattern is perfect! I’ve been looking for an easy blanket pattern like this to make for premature babies, this design is beautiful! Thank you for the free pattern! ❤️
I’m very excited at the prospects of possibly winning the Caspian Wooden hooks, and am inclined to believe that the smoothness of the wood will better enable the yarn to glide across the hook promoting speed. So so want them!
Most excited about the wooden hooks. They look so cool.
I would love to try the woooden hooks.
I would love to try the wooden Caspian hooks, but the books look really awesome!
It looks like this blanket has a huge squish factor to it. I don’t have a baby, but it looks like it would make a wonderful lap blanket for my Mom – adding it to my to-do list.
It’s hard to choose, since I’ve only used the basic metal hooks, but the colorful ones look so fun to use!
I love using wooden knitting needles, but have never tried wooden crochet hooks. They are beautiful and would love to try them! Your baby blanket is gorgeous!
Those colourful hooks would be amazing!

I’m starting to get aches in my hands with smaller hooks so the colorful set look like great hooks!

I love the easy to grip handles.
Hi Lee, great giveaway; love everything, but, if I had to choose, it would be the Caspian Hooks. Really, it would be so nice to have a complete set of hooks instead of a few from different companies. And thank you so much for the free patterns!
I am excited about the Caspien Wooden Crochet Hooks. The Briar Rose is a beautiful blanket pattern and looks so comfy.
I really like the colorful hooks, but am interested in trying the Caspian hooks!
I’ve never used wooden hooks before so I would be quite excited to try them! I mostly use the hand me down steel hooks (and a few plastic) given to me from my mother. The blanket is very lovely! This pattern with be going in my “to make” folder. Thank you!

I, too would be thrilled to add the Caspien wooden hook set to my collection. I reach for my current wooden hooks as my go-to as I find they feel better in my hands but I’m also curious about the magazine……where would I find the subscription info? Thanks for this giveaway opportunity. 💜🧶

I would love the wooden hooks. I have a wooden hook my great grandfather made that I plan to use to make the baby blanket. I also have wooden knitting needles he made.
I think I’m most excited about the Caspian Wooden hooks, never used wooden hooks before. I would LOVE to try the interchangeable tunisian ones! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blanket!

Your blanket design is lovely!!!!! I would live to feel/use the campaign hooks! I would gift the ergo hooks to a friend of mine.
I’ve never used wooden hooks but would love to try them since I love wooden knitting needles!
I’ve never worked with a wooden hook, so I’d be excited to try the Caspien set! The other items in the bundle are awesome too! Who couldn’t use a book or two of more crochet ideas and a cute bag to carry it all in?
Both sets of hooks are beautiful but if I have to pick I would say I’m most eager to try the Caspien hooks
What a fun giveaway!!! The wooden hooks have caught my eye 🥰

I have the Caspien set of Tunisian crochet hooks but I also love my Boye ergos. I have been curious to try other brands so I would have to say the colorful set of ergo hooks are more exciting.
They look super comfy!
I think I’m most excited about the Colorful Crochet Hooks. I have terrible arthritis in my hands and am always looking for an ergonomic set of hooks that will allow me to crochet without so much pain. Thank you!
