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!
