I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    Hello…I’m trying to find the pattern for the deep red square patterned afghan you have shown peeking out of the wooden chest….I cannot find the instructions on here anywhere, and it is exactly what I am looking for! Please, can you send me an instructional video or pattern to my email: loririvera27@gmail.com
    Thank you!

    How many did you chain for the single crochet blanket and what size hook did you use?

      Kim, I used a size L – 8.0mm hook and 100 chains. I single crocheted into the back loops only. ~ Jeanne 🙂

    This is really interesting, I’ve always loved sleeping with heavy blankets on at night and sleep better when I have lots of blankets. I should look into making one of these lovely blankets and adding it to the mix of blankets on my bed! 🙂

    Jeanne – Enjoyed your page on “weighted blankets” via crochet. One of my (6) granddaughters (who just turned 7 on 10/17/15) is a high-functioning autistic little girl, coupled with ADHD, Celic disease, PICA syndrome, insomnia, wears glasses, has had ear tubes, etc. I am just about finished with an actual “weighted blanket” for her using 6 pounds of poly pellets, and fiber fill for fluffiness of the blanket. I stitched approximately 200 2-1/2″ x 3″ squares filled with the poly pellets and fiber fill. I then made a cover (the “Frozen” sisters) for this blanket. Just need to add Velcro to the top for closure of the outer cover (which can be removed for washing when needed). But also wanted to let you know that there is a pattern on the internet called the “Beekeeper’s Quilt” by “Tiny Owl Knits”. However, it is knitted, but it is stuffed with fiber fill. I’m sure it could be crocheted and finished in the same manner as the knitted version.
    And lastly, good luck in your endeavors with the Crochet Crowd. I follow them when I can.

      I learned so much while researching the topic. It’s very interesting. I am going to search for the Beekeeper’s Quilt. Thank you so much for the kind words. 🙂

      Poly pellets? Sounds interesting. I’d always thought of weighted blankets as something you’d throw on a child while he was having a tantrum, but I really should know better than assume.
