It is time!! This is always the most exciting portion of the Design Wars challenges, as we reveal our designs and you get to VOTE!! (There are some pretty amazing designs, I tell ya!)

So let me introduce you to one of my favorite designs yet...

I threw my "hook" in the ring for
this 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!
