The weather so far this December has been so temperamental that I don’t even know what to do. One day it’s almost 50 degrees and blindingly sunny, the next it’s raining and damp enough that even a jacket doesn’t keep out the chill. I’m usually the kind of person that loves being outside, but not when I need to bring along a coat, umbrella, sunglasses, and gloves just to take a walk!
If you want to experience nature this winter without actually, you know, going outside, these 9 crochet afghan patterns are all inspired by the great outdoors.
