Big and Little Dipper Constellation C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

This is the last design (for now) in my constellation series. The last design featured the big dipper, but like I mentioned, it is actually URSA Major; and this blanket features both bears, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Using these constellations you can find the NORTH STAR, also featured in this blanket. I hope you enjoy this design and all the designs in this series!

If you have a constellation (or zodiac) that you LOVE and would love to see turned into a blanket, send me an email at LivingTheCraftLife (at) gmail (dot) com. I'd be happy to make one for you.

Big Dipper C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

This is the next design in my Constellation series. This is probably the most famous constellation out there. Everyone loves the Big Dipper! However, not many people know that this is actually called Ursa Major. The constellation is not supposed to be a spoon, but it is a BEAR! Did you know that? Now, if you love Ursa Major, you can make yourself a blanket for it!

Cassiopeia Constellation C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

This is the next design in my Constellation series. This is a much lesser known constellation, called Cassiopeia. I love this constellation because it is a very noticeable "W" in the sky. Imagine the vain Queen Cassiopeia lounging on her throne, the "W" shape. It is a very fun constellation to find. I challenge you to try to locate this constellation on the next clear night.

Orion Constellation C2C Blanket - FREE GRAPH

I don't know about you, but I've had the busiest summer OF MY LIFE! With families scrambling to figure out their back to school plans, my education consulting service has been BOOMING. I've been helping many families understand their choices within our local district and homeschooling options. Education has always been my first love, so crocheting had to take the back seat for a while. Helping others is just my favorite thing to do. I also just got back from a weeklong vacation at the beach, and it was so nice to escape the heatwave in my town and spend time with my family! I'm energized and refocusing my crocheting efforts!
This is the first design of my next series, CONSTELLATIONS! As a child, I loved looking at the stars, and my telescope was my best friend. I loved my books that told the stories behind the famous constellations. This is a short series of my TOP 3 FAVORITE CONSTELLATIONS.... starting with the famous ORION constellation. Orion was a hunter, and you can see him holding his bow. Most people only know how to find ORION'S BELT, 3 very distinct stars in a row. I challenge you to try to find the whole constellation. If you are a fan of the ORION CONSTELLATION, then this blanket is for you!
