DIY - Magnetic Pattern Holder

I found that using a pattern holder while knitting and crocheting is very helpful, so i had an idea to make my own pattern holder using my daughters old white board  and covered it with pretty fabric so it will look nice and decent

Flower Corners Blanket

If you like c2c stitch, you are definitely going to like this blanket pattern, c2c stitch are worked in an unusual way. Where the stitches are made around a main flower square to create bigger squares, after making four squares and the border then they are joined together to create a pretty blanket to treasure forever.

This pattern has been made in collaboration with www.hobiumyarns.com for the ambassadors program, you can find the yarns used in this patter and so much more in their website.
 

I hope you enjoy crocheting your flower corners
