If you're looking for a classic crochet afghan pattern you can use year round, then look no further than the Keeping it Classic Crochet Afghan Pattern. Between the combination of different crochet stitches and joining of panels, you'll need a little bit of crochet experience to make this blanket. But oh is it worth it!
Classic Cloche Pattern - I love this hat. I've made 3 so far (1 for me and 2 for friends). I made the "band" by weaving in and out of about every 5 stitches so it stays put and I made a flower to decorate the side. So cute!
