I'll tell ya' what...someway, somehow I must have done something good 
(ooooo...that sounds like a song)
 because I have run across the most awesome testers!
These two talented crocheters are referred to above with their Instagram handle. 

Thank you so much for sharing your time, talent, and wisdom!

A big thank you to my technical editor Kaitlin, as well!
You can find her for all your technical editing needs at
She keeps me writing the good stuff...and she is so good!

With each pattern that I write, I put it away for a while, work on something else and 
then come back to it with my own tests. 
I love that part because then I can play with color!!!
The above two photos are my test results,
the one in pastels with white is not finished yet but I crocheted enough to test it.
The colors for the bright colored one with black is included in the pattern.

The pattern is available by clicking on the following shops:

This is a warm and cozy blanket made from two strands of dk weight yarn.
I used Scheepjes Colour Crafter and Stylecraft Special DK, but any yarn can be used. 
 If using worsted or chunky weight yarn, then only one strand is needed, 
but a variegated yarn added would result in a similar effect. 😁

The pattern includes 13 pages of step-by-step instructions with many photos like this:

It also includes a one-page "abbreviated" version for printing or the more experienced crocheter. 
Additionally, two video links to exclusive videos are included. 
These videos are to help you with the special stitches and how to end and begin a row. 
The special stitches are a BPDC (Back Post Double Crochet) and FPDC (Front Post Double Crochet).

This pattern is perfect for a beginner. 
The pattern is written in English with US crochet terms.
