Yarn Anonymous Meetings Daily. Please have a seat. We will be starting right after we finish this row.

Thanks for stopping by Blue Frog Creek! My name is Sherry and I’m the head yarn hoarder and official stitch maker over here at Blue Frog Creek. I live in the Seattle area of the Pacific Northwest, USA. If you don’t know much about my neck of the world let me tell you, it rains here. It rains here a lot. Which gives us beautiful green trees, and lots of gray drizzly days to craft!

Our kids are grown so it’s just my husband and I, the cat, the dog and 13 ducks. (The ducks, by the way, absolutely love the rain.)

Blue Frog Creek has been quite the journey. It began at my birth with an obsession of all things crafts and quickly escalated from there. I have successfully passed the biological need for multiple totes, full of random supplies, onto my daughter. She thanks me everyday for having more ideas than time and money! I’m grateful at least 1 of my children got the DNA. Now I have someone to pass my totes onto in my will. Since you are here in my corner of the internet then you are definitely my kind of people!

I have always been pretty good at being able to figure out how something is constructed and I love making patterns. So, making patterns for other people is just natural progression. I started out years ago selling sewing patterns on eBay. But, then I just got too busy raising kids and fell away from it. I started making patterns again a few years ago, after a chronic illness put some kinks in my life. I started with crochet patterns and, since they do take some time to put together, I also started a blog with my other projects. I eventually found that the physical demands of traditional pattern making and blog posts were beyond my physical situation.

I really enjoy the C2C crochet stitch and cross-stitch. The graphing design of both is also right up my alley. So, I decided to start making charts! We set up my office nest (not a typo,I call my work space my nest) to accommodate my limitations, and off I went. I design the charts and my daughter helps me out with the designs as well. Then I create the entire pattern and bundle it all into an easy to use pdf.

I hope you find a pattern to love at Blue Frog Creek! Feel free to send comments, questions or concerns! I would love to hear from you. sherry [!at] bluefrogcreek.com

Frequently asked questions
What is Corner to Corner or C2C Crochet?

C2C crochet uses a block stitch in a diagonal corner to corner crochet technique. The stitch is a lot of fun and super easy once you get the hang of it! You can use just 1 color of yarn to make your project or up your crochet skills by stitching with multiple colors. Using a graphed picture you can create one of a kind projects!

Blue Frog Creek patterns provide you with not only the graph, but a detailed row by row block chart and word chart. Of course, you can always use the included graph for graphghans or cross stitch projects!

Does this look like all kinds of fun but you have never even heard of C2C, much less worked a patterned graph? Well, do I have you covered. I have written a few tutorials all about the C2C stitch and other things you might like to know.

What Does a Block Chart Look Like and How Do I Read It?

I have an example of a C2C Block Chart, like you will receive in your pattern, at the link below. I also explain how to read the Block Chart, if you aren't familiar. Don't worry about having to track this info down later. I put the How-To in the pattern as well.

**Note: The Block Chart is in Color. You will need access to a Color printer if you want to work off paper.

What Does a Word Chart Look Like and How Do I Read It?

I also have an example of a C2C Word Chart, like you will receive in your pattern, at the link below. I also explain how to read the Word Chart, if you aren't familiar.

Again, you don't need to worry about having to find the directions to read the pattern later. I included them in your pattern.

Are Graph Charts Always Included?

Long story short. I wasn't planning on including the graph charts because I felt the need to include floss colors for cross stitch projects. Designing with Red Heart colors made a surprising disaster with floss.

But, then I was stitching along one day and went to double check my work against a graph chart and thought to myself "Well, everyone may need a graph chart to double check against. Not everyone will need floss colors." So, I decided that if someone needs floss color suggestions they can just ask for them.

Of course, I decided this after I designed and drafted and edited and compiled over 200 patterns.

Graph Charts are Included IN ALL PATTERNS. But, if I accidentally forgot 1 then message me and I will add it.
