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 favorite book, listening to music or just relaxing.

Free Pattern: Healing Stitches Afghan

My story begins in the mist of the 2020 Corona Pandemic.  I work in an essential job, but luckily for me I am able to 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 of 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 for 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 offer their assistance in making the needed corrections.

  1. I am always in awe of those of you who are able to create these patterns! I am very grateful to you for sharing them for free since you certainly deserve compensation for your intellectual property. My TBC (to be crocheted) list grows by leaps and bounds. I’m working on 3 separate projects right now. I weary of one, I turn to the next. Again, thank you for keeping our hooks busy!

  2. I’d really like to make this for a king size bed. How many times do I have to repeat each section to make this happen?

    • I cannot say for sure how many times you would repeat for that size, but once you get going, you will see that there are 3 sections that are repeated and you can really grow this blanket as large as you’d like by simply following back in pattern. Enjoy the journey! 🙂

  3. I ordered my yarn online, eagerly waiting it’s arrival. I forced myself to finish a WIP and then jumped right in. I had no idea, when I bookmarked this pattern, just how significant this project was going to be. Two days after beginning I found out that my brother died very unexpectedly. Healing Stitches have never been more comforting! This project has been so cathartic these past few days. Thank you doesn’t seem adequate but that’s all I have to offer. My sincerest thanks. This project has been balm to my soul.

  4. Beautiful pattern but I was wis there a chart for it. I seem to do much better with a chart. I guess I’m
    A visual Lerner, thank you so much

    • This pattern may be transferred to Yarnspirations later on this calendar year. They have experts in the graphics designing for the charts. Daniel is good at charts but this one is really complex that I know the time it will take him, because he’s not as skilled as a regular graphics artist, would be really substantial. I’m sorry.

    • I’m planning on filming this blanket but not yet. I have two video series that have priority to be done to hit a deadline at the moment. If I film this, I want to be sure I have the whole thing filmed.

  5. Hello, Jeanne. I’m so happy to see the instructions to your beautiful Crochet Healing Stitches Afghan Pattern back again, and delighted to be working on it.☺ I need to ask a couple of dumb questions: 1. Do I turn at the end of each row, or do I keep going around? 2. At the beginning of round 2, is the first dc after the ch 3 a fpdc or is it the next one? Thank you very much.😺

  6. Jeanne, I love this blanket, so when starting the round/row did you start with a chain 4 or a magic circle. I do understand the pattern except the beginning of the start. Please let me know. I will make this lovely blanket . thank you

  7. Absolutely beautiful and to work on it within the community is brillant. I wish I was a more skilled crocheter to help with it at this stage but I’m just not there yet. I just love this and will do it as soon as I can. Thank you Jeanne for another wonderful project. Fyi Hugs and Kisses is my all time fav pattern. Ive made several and just love the way it flows. Can’t wait to try this one.

  8. Well I’ve been going thru my yarn (lots) and this looks so good I’ll give it a try. Oh dear, that means I won’t get to some of my WIPS. So what else is new. Any excuse. LOL!
