As your hook glides through your yarn creating stitches, it is like a dance of joy.

Crochet and designing always bring me joy and I know making my designs will bring joy to you too.

Let’s dance together.

Joyful Dance is a beautifully textured blanket, using some of my favourite stitches and stitch combinations.
The photo tutorial gives you step by step photos so that you can clearly see what each round and repeat should look like. Plus if you are a more visual person or a beginner to crochet there are also video tutorials in US terms that take you through step by step, with lots of handy hints and tips for working the special stitches.

The pattern is written to use 5 colours, but you can use as many or few colours as you like.

For Double Knit yarn with a 4mm G hook you will need a total of approx. 3835 meters / 4186 yards of yarn depending on the number of colours you use.

Should you wish to use an Aran/ Worsted weight yarn and a 5 mm H hook you will need approx. 25% more yarn.

    I love Helen’s patterns. This was the third of her patterns I’ve made as a baby blanket. I’m now doing the full version as a wedding gift. It is amazing that it is the same pattern but looks so different in different colors. Thanks for all you do, Helen!

    I can’t keep up with all of Helen’s beautiful blankets but please Helen, keep them coming!


    Looking forward to getting started on the Joyful Dance afghan!

    Cant belive the amount of detail these patterns are written with, I’ve been crocheting for 48 years, but my newest student just started and was able to follow along with very little struggle … they blankets are so satisfying to complete and show off to ooohs and aaaahs from friends and strangers alike … thank you for the gift of you!
