The crochet pattern is “Beautiful Shells Blanket” and is designed around a central square. I’m working it in pinks and white using yarn from my stash. It is acrylic yarn, an assortment of brands (hmmm…) and worsted weight. I am using a Boye H, 5mm soft grip crochet hook.
I’ve called the project, AmiDoll’s SweetHeart in memory of my Cocker Spaniel, AMCH Kindred Playin’ By Heart, Ami. And a sweeter heart would be difficult to find.
I’m not sure how much yarn it will require because I’m scrapping it from yarn I bought to make my little amigurumi AmiDoll. But I’ll keep adding to it until the scraps are woven into this lovely pattern.

Last year I crocheted several lapghans and afghans. In the spring I freshend my front room color scheme from deep jewel tones of winter, to light and airy ones that reminded me of the sea, sandy beaches, and the sky.
The result was my SeaSiren rolls from the shore to the deep sea and back again bubbling up with a little seafoam misting into clouds.
The pattern was pictured in a solid, but my SeaSiren, based on a modified shell and post pattern, is multi-colored and done in worsted weight yarn.
If you hold it close to your ear, you might just hear the sirens calling you.
