If you’ve browsed through some of the projects on FaveCrafts, odds are you’ve come across the work of Roseanna Beck. Roseanna is, to say the least, an avid crocheter who loves to experiment with color and texture in her beautiful handcrafted projects. She makes throws, baby blankets, tissue box covers, handbags, and more. Though the color palette changes from project to project, from soft pastels to vibrant jewel tones, every project of Roseanna’s manages to be light and refreshing.
How did Roseanna become such an expert crocheter? She’s been honing her skills since childhood. Since those early days spent crocheting on the front porch with her best friend’s grandmother, her designs have been published in multiple books and magazines. Ever a generous spirit, Roseanna donates much of her time to crafting for charities. Plus, she’s a very patient instructor. She taught me the difference between Bavarian Stitch and Catherine’s Wheel, and I vow never to confuse the two again.
In addition to the editor’s picks that I’ve posted here, you can find many of her free crochet afghan patterns on FaveCrafts, where we’ve gathered an impressive collection of Roseanna originals.
Free Crochet Afghan Patterns
I cannot read, sleep, or watch TV without a blanket. Roseanna’s afghans speak to this little quirk of mine. Although some of these free crochet afghan patterns were designed with babies in mind, I can’t resist the beautiful blend of colors in them. This Bavarian Rainbow Afghan is a special favorite. The colors are whimsical enough that I can get away with using this wrap even in the middle of summer.
Floral Crochet Throw Pillows and Crochet Flower Patterns
And what’s an afghan without a comfy pillow? Roseanna has managed to design pillows that are just as cute as her afghans. I like to wear floral year round, so her designs always go with my wardrobe. She’s also come up with tons of cute crochet flower patterns for beginners, so you can carry a bit of spring with you wherever you go.
