Have you noticed that there are now opportunities to sponsor Crochet Concupiscence by advertising in the sidebar here? One of this month’s sponsors is AnastaciaKnits. She’s a very generous sponsor who is offering a free pattern giveaway here on the blog PLUS she’s giving a 25% discount to my newsletter subscribers on any pattern from her store.

Before we dig in, I wanted to remind you that people who contribute to my Hook to Heal fundraiser this week can get free sponsorship opportunities on the site!

About Sponsor Anastacia Knits

You’ve already heard a lot about this crochet designer on my site because I’m a huge fan of her work (especially her crochet shawls) and her blog. Here’s the bio I previously included when she generously sponsored my Christmas Crochet Giveaway a few months ago:

“Anastacia Zittel is a crochet blogger, a knit and crochet teacher certified by the Craft Yarn Council and an independent pattern designer. I have featured her work on this blog multiple times, including an interview when she participated in the 2011 December Giveaways here on the blog. As a designer Anastacia works to raise money forAlzheimer’s research. She donates to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and has one by-donation pattern, Ruth’s Bracelet, that is dedicated to her grandmother Ruth who died from this illness.

Check out the Crafty Book Challenge that Anastacia is hosting this year for people who enjoy reading crochet fiction and non-fiction. See all her designs on Ravelry. I’m personally loving her newest free crochet pattern: The Three Triangles Shawl; the pattern is free for download but Anastacia asks that if you like this shawl pattern, you either make a shawl for charity or donate money to the Alzheimer’s Society of America. Here’s what that pattern looks like:

Anastacia is always up to something new and interesting, like CALS for example. The best way to keep track of that is to join her Ravelry group.

The Crochet Pattern Giveaway

Anastacia Knits is offering winner’s choice of two of her top crochet patterns free to one winner in this giveaway. The winning entry can either choose:

Julia Heliconian Crochet Shawl. Anastacia says about this crochet shawl pattern: “I wanted something simple that would showcase a beautiful skein of yarn – something that was easy, looked beautiful, but was still interesting to make – and of course, I wanted my traditional “any weight, any gauge” style.”

Tumbling Diamonds Crochet Shawl. “This is a top down, any weight / any gauge shawl and can be made any size. The shape is a half circle.”

    I pinned 5 pics from this post on Pinterest, however, Pinterest only wants to display the pic on 3 of them :-( I tagged @Crochet Concupiscence @Anastacia Zittel in each post

      @n0rthernlitegurl Strange – I wonder why Pinterest was being fickle. That’s okay – I’ll count all the entries!
