Hello, sweet pea! I have two treats for you this week. The first is a fun, classic crocheted blanket pattern that is just perfect for cozying up under on cool evenings. Keep reading to learn more about this pattern, as well as a brand new yarn base that I’m SO excited to share with you!
Querencia was designed by Patricia Liefeld. When asked about her design, Patricia said, “Querencia (kr-en-see-uh) is a place where you are most yourself, a place where you draw your inspiration or strength from. This pattern is a simple ripple pattern with a twist. It uses double and triple crochet along with a puff stitch. It combines lace, fingering, and sport weight yarn, which creates a unique and fun texture.”
“This fun design can be a scarf, a king-size blanket, or anything in between. Just begin with a multiple of 12 plus 3 stitches to achieve the width you want, and continue the rows until you reach the desired length. Whatever you make, it will wrap you in warmth and coziness. May it provide a calming sense of peace and a space where you feel comforted and most like your true self.”
Querencia is shown here in a mix of our lace, fingering, and sport weight yarns. This design also features our new Limited Edition Sugar Fluff Fingering yarn, which I think you’re going to adore!

It is ideal for multi-seasonal use and all of your treasured items. Sugar Fluff Fingering is made from 80% Suri Alpaca and 20% Acrylic with 364 yds/333 m per 3.5 oz/100 g skein.
