The Loopy Love Blanket is so fun to make! The pattern is easy to memorize, the stitches just fly by, and the end result looks way more complicated than it should. And in 3 colors, you can change colors every row and never have to cut the yarn!
This site has it all! Loads of crochet stitches plus knit, tatting, lace making and much more! This stitch is called Crossed trebles. The site this comes from is full of wonderful stitches, tips and tricks. It's certainly worth a look around.
Country Cozy Afghan, free pattern (archived) by Caron. Pic from Ravelry Project Gallery. Pretty textures with simple stitches - DC, V-stitch, & granny clusters. Open stitch pattern would be nice for warmer weather. . . ღTrish W ~ http://www.pinterest.com/trishw/ . . . #crochet #blanket #throw
