If you are a knitter and want to learn how to crochet, or if you are a crocheter and want to learn a new design, we have the pattern for you – a Star Blanket. The Star Blanket uses the ripple stitch in the round, making a fun and fast project.
You can make the Star Blanket in multiple colors, or solids, or a combination of solids and variegated or even self striping yarns for one-of-a-kind results. The Star Blanket also lends itself to various sizes, in various yarn weights.
This KAL will begin on August 24th through September 7th, skipping Sept. 14th – Yarn Crawl week; resuming on September 21st, ending on September 28th, Wednesdays, from 5:00 pm to 7:00pm.
