#BAWJ2019 Week 24

Frostbloom 12” Afghan Square by Shan Sevcik

Welcome to Week 24 of our 2019 Block of the Week Crochet Along.  Don’t forget to join in chatting and sharing photos on my Ravelry board and my Facebook Crochet-A-Long group.  Feel free to jump in any time. Please use hashtags #BAWJ2019 and #crochetalongwithJulieanny.

This week we have a beautiful and easy design by Shan Sevcik called Frostbloom 12” Square, a free Ravelry download.  I have always admired Shan’s beautiful work and miss their designs! But Shan is busy now with two little ones but hopefully will get back to designing one of these days.  Because this block has been used in several CALs in the past, many of you may have already stitched it, so I am offering a bonus square, my Daisy Girl Design, FREE for a LIMITED time, only to readers of this blog, with Coupon Code daisy19, good for 30 days, until July 16, 2019.

Have you purchased your CAL bag yet – only a few left – my custom heavy-duty canvas tote bag. NEW: For the bag alone without included patterns, see this Etsy listing. For a free bag with pattern purchase see here for more information.

If you purchase yarn through any of my links, I will receive a commission. If you need help with color coordination, check out pre-made palettes at Wool Warehouse and Deramores. Look for good prices at Michaels, Joann, Lion Brand, Hobby Lobby, Red Heart, Annies, and Consumer Crafts.
