So let me introduce you to one of my favorite designs yet...
I threw my "hook" in the ring forthis round, using Red Heart Heads Up yarn--a new fantastic bulky (5) weight yarn in brilliant colors and with the softest hand--washable, too!
This design is so whimsical and in typical Felted Button fashion, has lots of texture, color and versatility (you can make it a rug or blanket in any size from a lovey to king). And take a look at that whimsical border. Fun, huh?!
Best part to me--it's FUN to crochet! The back is constructed in repetitive rows that are just nice and relaxing. Then the ribbons are worked--in any colors you choose, of course--and attached with matching yarn and a hook. It goes super fast! Seriously, easy peasy!
Just out of curiosity, I tried making this blanket with some other weight yarn--mostly Baby Bee Sweet Delight from Hobby Lobby--and it turned out awesome! Seriously fun for a little one to finger and snuggle.
Plus, take a peek at what Brittany of R&L Crochet Co. did with her test sample--a perfectly sized lovey, I say! And such elegant shabby chic colors!
Voting is done on Ravelry this round. All you do is favorite (little red heart) the design(s) you like best. So, head here to cast your vote by clicking the little red heart in the upper right corner that says "add to favorites".
You can find the Ruffled Ribbons Blanket and Rug pattern in my Ravelry shop here. And there you can read more about what the pattern details. It's also in my Etsy and Craftsy shops.
I've got my hook in another fabulous design--almost finished! Plus, be on the look-out for a free pattern coming tomorrow! You can keep in the "Button" loop for free patterns, giveaways, coupons and happenings on my Facebook page.
