Are you looking for a new crochet project? What better than a beautiful blanket that will surely become a family treasure? Or an exquisite gift for a special occasion or someone very special?
Championing Janie Crow Designs
Janie is a very talented, world class designer and writer who creates adventurous patterns for crocheters who want to hook unique heirloom blankets/Afghans to be used for future generations.
Her patterns are beautifully clear and have plenty of photos to help even the most novice crocheter.
She’s also lovely, friendly, down to earth and supportive of local independent yarn shops.
We are very excited to be stocking her patterns and kits.
Indeed, Janie Crow Designs are renowned, and so often adored; and the range really does include something for all tastes…
Each pattern is in the form of a beautifully presented printed pictorial booklet with very clear and comprehensive instructions. Which makes what looks so beautifully effective and crafted accessible to most crocheters.
We supply the patterns alone or the kits which include the pattern and all the yarn needed to complete the blanket in these suggested colours both in the shop and here in our online store: janie-crow-designs
