Crosshatch Blanket
MeadowFiresideSkylineHot SpringsAlpine

The Crosshatch Blanket in made from Mary Maxim's very own Aspen yarn with tilted blocks of double crochet make the colors go this way and that.

Aspen is a bulky weight yarn that is a roving type yarn that is self-striping and a very soft 100% acrylic that makes it safe to machine wash and dry. It has the feel of a mixed fiber yarn. Aspen yarn comes in eight unique colors that can be chosen for your preference in this blanket. This yarn lends itself nicely with this simple pattern, making splashes of different colors instead of a stripe effect.

This blanket is very easy to crochet and is a good beginner project that is done in double crochet stitches, in a crosshatch design that tilts the blocks so the colors are enhanced. Once the basic pattern is established it is repeated easily to complete the blanket. Gauge is not terribly import in this project, but staying consistent in tension will give it an accomplished look. It is worked on a large hook so it works up quickly to a generous size of 45 by 52 inches.

Finishing the blanket will give the beginner crocheter a sense of accomplishment and pride. Experienced crocheter will enjoy making this beautiful blanket also, as it is a quick project that you can keep and be proud of, or to give as a lovely gift to someone you care for.

The blanket has a soft lofty feel to it yet has some weight to it as the yarn is a bulky yarn, it also feels textured because of the roving style of the yarn.

Diamond Honeycomb Throw

I’ve been collecting bags and purses for as long as I can remember. My closet is stuffed with them. I love unique shapes, colors and textures. Mostly, I love being able to create something myself. My idea for the shape of this bag came from scrolling fashion handbags on Pinterest and being awed by all the possibilities for shape. Once I saw this Aspen yarn in the Lodge colorway, I KNEW that it was meant to be a handbag.

You’ll need 2 skeins of Mary Maxim Aspen for this project in your favorite Aspen Color. Wait! Go ahead and order 2 in every color, this is such a fun pattern you'll want to make more than one. This handbag works up quickly and is addictive! It’s also a great gift item. I’ve already made 2, and I won’t lie. I ordered enough yarn to make 4 more. And I’m not one to remake my own designs if I don’t have to! 

Originally published as the Mary Maxim Crochet Along pattern for May 2021 (published across 3 blog posts), the Blythe Handbag quickly became one of my most popular patterns! Now available in Ravelry and Etsy in PDF format–you can access this pattern so much more easily now! I love this handbag just as much as when I first designed it. It works up quickly in bulky yarn. It has amazing texture. The stitches are easy and fun. If you haven’t given this pattern a try, check it out. It’s perfect for gifts, product makers, or make-for-yourself projects!
