**********************

Silvana has been crocheting since she was 8 years old, taught by her very crafty mother. She’s designed many things over the years for her children and grandsons. In recent years she’s tried her hand at designing! She’s designed squares for our anniversary CAL called a Friends Around the World (FATW), a wearable called MelRose Cowl named after her daughter and now an afghan. As you can see by the pictures, it is ABSOLUTELY beautiful!

As with all of Silvana’s patterns, she grabs her hook and yarn of choice and begins, without a plan. And lucky for us, something beautiful and creative is always the result. This time, once she’d finished the Afghan and was laying it out for a photo shoot, something amazing Was revealed in the Afghan AND in Nature itself! A BUTTERFLY! Not only did one land on a nearby butterfly bush but the Afghan itself looks like a butterfly when folded a certain way. The special visitor and the happy accident with the Afghan was such a gift. Butterflies have a very special place in Silvana’s heart and life.❤️

You can learn more about Silvana in her bio listed below and her other patterns, Butterfly Kisses , a FATW3 square, The MelRose Cowl and her 2 FATW5 squares Nacatole and Seacrest.

Silvana has used Lionbrand Ice Cream, Big Scoop in the color Tutti Frutti which is a DK weight yarn, size 3 and a G (4.0 mm) hook. She’s used about 15 oz/426 grams of yarn in her sample. Each square measures right around 12” and the finished blanket is about 39” square so it’s the perfect size for a baby. But it can also easily be made larger by making mores squares and/or using thicker yarn. You can find all the yarn and hook details in the link below.
Butterfly Blossom Blanket: INTRODUCTION
I’d say this is an intermediate type pattern but….. Tania Leis of Hooked by TJ has made very easy to follow, step by step videos for this Blanket so even a beginner can crochet along! The pattern has a photo tutorial and Silvana also give you hints and helps along the way, written in green.

Winter is coming and I’m sure we all know of a baby, child or adult in need of a snuggly Blanket! So go check your stash, select your yarn and get ready for the start of the CAL.

Release dates are as follows:

  • information October 9th
  • part 1 October 23rd
  • part 2 October 30th

I’m so excited for the CAL to start, honored that we were able to test and host Silvana’s pattern and can’t wait to see everyone’s color selections and finished blankets!!

See you in 2 weeks! Until then, happy crocheting!

-Laurene ❤️
