Doughnut Blanket

The doughnut blanket has launched! I’m so in love with this pattern. The little cupcake border makes me so happy, too. It’s great for scrap eating and using up fun little bits of variegated yarn that’s hard to use in larger projects, and is super easy to customize for baby shower themes, too.

Also, it looks delicious. Yum!

The pattern is up in my Ravelry shop for $1 off for the launch weekend (until 8/12/18), or in Etsy if you’d prefer that.

Ahhh, just look at those little cupcakes!

If you make your own version of the blanket, please tag me on IG (#tigardneedlework & #cassandrasdesigns) or make a project page on Rav! I love seeing what everyone comes up with.

Happy crafting!

Cupcake Chart

The corner to corner (C2C) craze has finally caught hold of me. I love these silly charts and have been making them far faster than I can crochet them – but that doesn’t mean I can’t share them with others!

First up, is a cute cupcake. It’s a pretty simple chart with only a few colours used. It’s also easily customized to just about however you want it to work up. I want to make one and stitch on some sprinkles in a varigated yarn, maybe..? Mmm. All the deliciousness, none of the calories!

I’ve included the chart if you’d like to save it and zoom in (the rows are numbered for C2C), and also uploaded a PDF that can be downloaded and printed off. The PDF has the chart split onto four pages so you can cut and tape them together for a big picture. This chart is 80 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall, and will make a decent sized blanket with a standard worsted weight yarn & hook size. (This will vary with gauge, but expect a blanket about 80″ wide by about 100″ tall or so, not counting a border.) Speaking of a border, maybe a cute cupcake border will be in order?!

If you prefer written directions for C2C, or would rather work this in a single crochet chart format, you can find those PDFs in my Ravelry store, here: click me! (or if you’d rather, in my Etsy shop: click me!)

I hope you enjoy the pattern & share your creations for everyone to see!
