Make your own crochet blanket

Riding the Wave Blanket

By Cassie Ward

After the tragedy of losing my dear mum Josie  in my late 20’s,  I suffered  terribly with anxiety  and needed  a  distraction  from  my  overactive  mind.  I  was at an exhibition sitting next to a lovely Irish lady from the UK Hand Knitting Association. I picked up a hook, she taught me the basics of crochet there and  then  and  sent  me  on  my  way.  I was instantly addicted and began designing immediately.

I love playing with different stitches, styles and textures. Many of my  designs  are  born  out  of  my  love  of  fashion  and  desire  to  be different.  My  designs  have  appeared  in  Inside  Crochet,  Crochet Now, Simply Crochet, Mollie Makes and The Crochet Society Box.
