Lapghan of Love Crochet Pattern

The Lapghan of Love crochet pattern was created especially for those going through chemo, or other health related struggles, that could use some extra warmth. When you add some love from the maker it is sure to bring some comfort when they need it most. The lapghan is a small throw size and made with super bulky weight yarn, so it will work up quickly.

Climbing Ivy Super Scarf Crochet Pattern

Charity has always been a big part of where my crochet heart is at, so I’m excited to be a part of this year’s scarf drive. Sonya from Blackstone Designs has done all the legwork and gotten a great group of designers together to create scarf patterns. The intent is for the crochet community to reach out and donate to help those in need. There are so many places that these scarves can be donated to.  Think about schools, hospitals, homeless shelters, or even wrap them around a park bench with a note for someone who may be spending the night on that bench.

 

Climbing Ivy Super Scarf by Ambassador Crochet

 

I decided for my scarf I wanted to do a super scarf for two reasons. First of all, they’re all the rage this year. But secondly, I have a heart for the homeless and a super scarf would be just a bit of extra warmth for someone out there that may need it.
