"This toothy crochet texture stitch in Patons Classic Wool Bulky is a great match-up for this quick-stitching wool yarn. The 1-row pattern repeat is easy enough for a beginner, but really fun to stitch for all crocheters, with satisfying results. Easy on and off button closures makes cleaning or switching up your pillow case a breeze."
"Patons Classic Wool Roving is soft and lofty, yet still has great stitch definition to show off your cable knitting skills in this richly textured design. I thought of this blanket as a classic keepsake to fit in a variety of different decors. Cable stitch charts are provided for all the cable panels along with traditional text. If you've never tried working from a cable chart, this is a great project to try them out."
"In this design, I wanted to incorporate a modern geometric aesthetic, while keeping it understated and classic. The herringbone stitch, with its woven appearance and subtle texture, was the ideal to achieve this balance."
"My favorite types of projects are those which use basic stitches and techniques in modern ways. For this blanket, I chose some of my favorite colors in Patons Decor and set them upon an aran background to really show them off. Rows of double crochet are made more interesting by shifting the number of stitches worked in the contrast color to create those long triangle wedges."
"I let the texture of Patons Cobbles do most of the work in this design. An irish moss stitch adds interest, both to the finished product and the process of knitting, without competing with the yarn."
"For this blanket, I wanted to play with optical illusions and shadows to create a bold, graphic blanket that is also fun and interesting to knit. I use 2 'stepping' colors of Patons Canadiana to create mitered squares that feel like you could dive right on into!"
"A little dot of color will do ya! I wanted to evoke the Warm Minimalism feeling with the way color is used in this traditional style blanket. The all over neutrals with the sparse dots of pastels give this timeless blanket a contemporary look and feel."

I’ve been fortunate to make my passion for yarn a career for many years and I’m still learning new things. My favorite way to work through my at-home stash is making blankets. I also love to hang out in my garden whenever I can.
Admittedly, my first project was a half-finished dishcloth I made as a child when my Aunt first taught me to knit. It wasn’t until my university years that I truly learned the joy and satisfaction of knitting and crocheting. I now enjoy a career doing what helped me relax and hope these patterns do the same for you.
My Nana taught me how to knit and crochet when I was small - little did I know she was laying the groundwork for my career as a Knit and Crochet designer! After studying Fashion Design in college, I joined Patons and have been a designer here for 10 years. It is still amazing to me that I get to come to work every day and do what I love.
I am a junior designer with Patons North America. My mother taught me how to knit when I was a child. Before joining the Patons design team, I completed graduate research in politics and aesthetics. When I am not knitting or crocheting, I am most likely to be found at the park with my dog, Scylla.
