Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Thermal Stitch Preemie AfghanDesigned by Julie A. Bolduc

The stitch pattern used in this pattern resembles the look of those wonderfully warm thermal blankets you can buy. This stitch could also be used in large afghans and would be very warm. The way the thermal pattern is made makes it really thick.

Materials Needed:
2 skeins 3oz each of Caron Simply Soft in Soft Pink.
Size I aluminum crochet hook
Yarn Needle

Yarn Thickness: 3mm
Gauge: 4sc=1"
Finished Size: 16"x16"
Skill Level: Beginner

NOTE: To make this stitch pattern, I use a combination of two stitches. A hdc in one st followed by what I call a (scfbb) which is a single crochet front back bobble. It is made the same way as a fbb from last month but instead of doing the yo first in the stitch work the stitch in the following way.

Single Crochet front back bobble: (scfbb)
Insert hook in back lp only of next st. yo, draw up a loop. You will now have 2 lps on hook. Yo, draw through one lp on hook. Now, insert hook in front lp of same stitch from the inside toward you, yo draw up a lp. You should now have 3 lps on hook. Yo and pull through all 3 lps on hook.
