Well, we have one month of 2013 behind us! January  has come and gone, but lucky for you, the favorite patterns from last month are here. We kept track of the top 20 patterns from our free newsletters  last month just to see what you all like (and because it’s fun to see what’s trending). Am I right? Let’s take a look!
Quick, easy, and fast projects  were among the top 20. The most popular pattern was the World’s Easiest Crocheted Afghan . This pattern is great for quick gifts, beginner crocheters, and learning how to crochet your first afghan. If you’ve made this afghan, post a photo to our Facebook page  or tell us below!
Baby blankets  were popular last month as well. With spring baby showers coming up, I expect you all to be loving baby blankets in the next few months! We’ll be adding more baby blanket patterns to the site and don’t forget, if you design a pattern and want to see it on our site, submit your pattern here !

I think with all of the holiday chaos back in December, granny square patterns  were not as popular last month. It takes longer to crochet afghans this way so I totally understand taking a break from the granny square world.
