Winter is the busiest time of year for makers. We spend alot of time making for our loved ones, participating in craft fairs, or even selling on etsy. Whoever you make for it might be time to make for yourself a little. Throughout December me and 16 other designers have come together to create a unique blanket making experience.
From December 1st until December 22nd each designer will present an 8×8 inch square representing what the winter season means to them. All these squares can be combined together to create a personalised blanket.
Every day you will visit this post where you will find the latest pattern. Under each pattern there will be instructions including a CODE to get the FREE PDF. You will be lead through to the designers blog where you will find within their page text that reads “Click HERE to download the free Ravelry download”.
This cute little snowman makes the perfect kick off to a wintery blanket. You can still view this pattern for free over on my blog, and the pattern is at a reduced rate until the end of the day!
