Crochet Healing Stitches II Afghan

The Crochet Healing Stitches II Afghan is the sister blanket to the Healing Stitches Square Afghan.  This time, I created an FTM, from the middle rectangle-shaped blanket with lots of different colours, definitely outside my comfort zone.

Last month, I found so much joy in crochet and blending different stitch combinations, that I wanted to keep going so I knew a rectangle was just what was needed next.  There are just as many magical healing stitches in this one as in the original.  Also, I’m not very good at choosing colours, but I have found some really good inspiration by using websites with colour palettes.  I enjoy sites like Color Palette Ideas that uses photographs as colour inspirations.

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.
