As you may or may not know, I had our second little guy at the beginning of August 2019! So what that meant for Life and Yarn is that I was not doing as much designing as I normally would and spending more time working on some selfish projects! However, as much as I tried to stay away from designing, it’s just not in my nature! So, that’s where this post comes in! This is my informal write up of this Free Crochet Throw Pattern. This is one of my many projects I have going as selfish makes to use up some of my yarn stash! Think of this Free Crochet Throw Pattern as more of a recipe than a pattern! Have some fun with it and adjust it however you would like!
