Today I am introducing my newest crochet design, Healing Stitches Afghan.  This blanket has magical healing powers, at least it did for me.

It’s a comfy soft 58″ square that will be just the right weight to lay over your lap while you curl up with your favourite book, listening to music or just relaxing.

Free Pattern: Healing Stitches Afghan

My story begins amid the 2020 Corona Pandemic.  I work in an essential job, but luckily for me, I can do most of my work from home.  I was 4 weeks into staying in place, all alone with my cat Stewy.  Thankfully we live in a time were video chatting is available, so I was not without constant and instant contact from coworkers during the day and friends in the evening.  But the lack of physical human contact finally got the best of me.  While others complained about their husbands and children, I would have given anything to have another person sit next to me on my couch.  I did not slip off the edge but felt like someone pushed me in.  I normally wake up every morning happy and ready for a new day.  One morning, I just woke up in tears, ugly tears, that lasted the entire day.  I got through my work, but it was tough.  Finally, at the end of the day when I could pick up my yarn and hook, I looked at the 12″ that I was into another WIP, and it made me even sadder.  So I just started frogging all of it.  I sat down and just started to crochet and typed, round after round, trying to create something different with each round.  Pouring into the math, at one point, I frogged one section 4 times before I was happy with the result.  But the very best part, I forgot about my sadness.  I forgot about my loneliness.  The stitches were healing my soul.  When I started to get into a rhythm, I prayed, not for me, but the world.  Prayers for health care workers.  Prayers for anyone that has to work in an essential job in the public.  Prayers that we all get through this very strange time of our lives.

I am so grateful to our community of crocheters who helped me to test this pattern.  It was a thrill to have so many offers their assistance in making the needed corrections.

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.
