As you can see from the photo, we're having a bit of a dreary day. Although the clouds brought rain making all the trees and grass pop into this bright green so typical of our Northern Adirondack Spring! Or maybe we've skipped Spring? At any rate, due to our rather overcast day I needed a little color and beauty, with a pinch of cute in my life. Thanks to Nana's Crochet Creations, I have found that very mixture of crochet patterns to share with you!
Nana of Nana's Crochet Creations is Des Maunz. The brains behind classy, fresh designs with a bit of a vintage feel. Nana's Crochet Creations has a completely different approach to sharing patterns than other designers I've covered for this blog before. In fact there was not even a Ravelry page for Nana's Crochet Creations before February of 2018! All her patterns are shared, for free, 100% on Facebook. I really like that concept because Facebook reaches so many people. What amazes me is that she's happy to share her patterns with a huge audience of people, 32, 926 "likes" on her page at the time of writing, for free! You have to see the designs to really get what I am talking about so log in to your facebook and let's get into our Nana's Crochet Creations highlights.
The majority of Des Maunz patterns are blanket/afghan patterns. They are absolutely OUT of this world stunning. There are 21 blanket patterns and you know that means I actually had to pick a few to share! 😉
It is Spring here in very Northern New York but in many places around the world folks are already into very warm temperatures! Crocheters are looking for the perfect carry along project. Blanket squares are a fantastic way to keep hands busy without having to fight the heat. Des Maunz has created some beautiful blanket squares. I like blanket squares because they make for flexibility in sizing of blankets.
Des Maunz has, of course, designed some clothing for little people AND big people. Inspiration comes from many places. I love what Des Maunz has to offer!
If I don't finish this blog up and get moving on my crocheting I won't get a chance to start the Sweet As Can BEE blanket. Thank you all for reading the blog today and thanks to Des Maunz for her beautiful work! If you check out Nana's Crochet Creations please leave a message letting her know you stopped by!
