Puff Stitch Lanyard
The Puff Stitch Lanyard was designed with using your scraps in mind! It’s a simple stitch pattern that’s worked in the round to create a fun, fashionable lanyard! Lion Brand’s 24/7 cotton was used to make the samples but really any worsted weight yarn will do! The pattern includes links to Amazon for the hardware used in the pattern and photo aids to help you along the way. Happy crocheting!

I designed this dishcloth using one of my favorite crochet stitches. It is named after Virginia’s state tree and flower: The American Dogwood. Dishcloths make excellent market items, but I especially love to give them as gifts for Christmas, Mother’s Day, birthdays, etc. We use them in our own home all the time as well!
