Interview with the Designer - Tamara Kelly

Tamara Kelly from Moogly designed this summer blanket and we asked her some questions about crocheting and blogging.

Q: What skill/technique/project is on your "bucket list?" 
A: Years ago, before I started crocheting "professionally," I started this gorgeous blanket from Lion Brand - the Tree of Life Afghan. I got about 1/3 of the way done, and then life happened, and I set it aside... and lost my place! It's always in the back of my mind that one day I will go back and figure out where I left off and finish it.

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I think my style is modern, contemporary, and approachable. And realistic! As a mom of 3, practicality is almost always a concern too. I love making things the whole family can use and enjoy, as well as things that make me feel special. I love wearing and using the things I've made! 

Q: How long have you been blogging? Why did you start? 
A: I started blogging about crochet in 2011, as a way to show my finished items, and try to get some sales without having to pay Etsy fees and such - what can I say, I was broke! But it quickly became so much more. Today blogging, designing, and teaching online are my career, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Now that we've gained some insights about the designer and blogger, we hope you love this summer blanket!

Moogly is one of my favorite designers. I love just about every thing that I have seen posted on All Free Crochet. This daydream summer blanket is no exception. Most people do not appreciate all the hard work that goes into making crochet items. I do not think I could every come up with my own patterns but when I start working one I appreciate all the effort that had to go into making it. I thank you so much for this beautiful free pattern.

This stitch reminds me of the moss stitch I worked with not too long ago. I love the design and would like to make it with my three favorite colors, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. I found this combination on accident trying to use up some yarn and I was making baby doll blankets. I love these 3 colors together and I am sure with this "over-reaching" design it will be delicious.

I love the look of this pattern! Has anyone made this with the cotton yarn? I am wondering how it turned out. And if cotton is comfortable for a blanket. I love using it for dish cloths and other items, but I am a little worried about making a blanket with cotton. I will give it a try and see how I like it, or just use a different kind of yarn.

I love this Daydream Summer Blanket! The pattern is well done and so easy to follow and if your not great a following a pattern there is also a video to help make this. I love the easy steps to make a beautiful blanket. There are so many sizes for this one too that makes it a all time favorite. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet blanket pattern.

This afghan made as is has been named perfectly! It's so crisp and soothing! I think I'll make one up for my sister who's very much into southwest decor. If I use deep turquoise, papaya and brown I think it'll be lovely and fit into her existing decor magnificently! Kudos to Tamara Kelly for another awesome design and thanks allfreecrochet for pointing it out!

I love this cute stripey afghan! I have a family member expecting a baby in a couple of months, so I'll have to make this for her little one!

Soft cotton yarn and beautiful blocks create this cute blanket. The fun zigzag pattern and boxes make for an interesting pattern. I love the way it looks. The 20 x 20 size makes it perfect for a tiny newborn to be welcomed into the family. Awesome that so many other sizes are available all the way up to a king/Cal king size.

If you don't have a Hobby Lobby near you to buy the "I Love Cotton" yarn, you can substitute with the Lily Sugar n' Cream just fine. You may not be able to find such luscious colors, though. This blanket uses a beginner-worthy stitch, but with a twist- clusters of the stitch leap into the next row! This creates the unique look of this adorable blanket. Suitable for any member of the family.

This is a pretty blanket. It's not difficult to do and would make you feel good while creating it. The bonus comes when it's finished. Thank you particularly for listing the different sizes and yardage required for the size a person would like to do. I have a queen size bed and this is the first pattern I've seen that I thought I would do for my bed. I really do appreciate your expertise in creating this pattern.

Of course, I'm inspired by Tamara Kelly. Like her, I would like to have a blog where I can showcase and sell my products. I hope to do this soon. Here's the link to Tamara's blog and the pattern http// == bed-Crochet-Scarf

I really like the pastel colors of these blankets! They would make great baby shower gifts if you want something gender-specific but not overwhelmingly so.

These are two lovely color combos for a baby afghan. The stiches also seem to be so easy. Here's the link to the pattern http// == nket-crochet/

Easy to follow and works up beautifully!

I love the picture of the afghan you worked up, it looks amazing! From reading the other comments on this pattern, it sounds like there really isn't much of a pattern provided. Did you find anything difficult to understand or follow in the pattern? Or were the instructions not complete? I think I'm going to try this pattern for a baby shower gift that is needed coming up! Any tricks or tips you can provide?

This works up so easily - I carried the ends, so no weaving in all those color changes, and the blanket came out thick and cozy. One of my color was variegated which added a lovely fuzziness to the combination. I rarely repeat patterns but I can't wait to make another one!

Love the pattern and can't wait to try it. It was a little tricky downloading the pattern. @hotgladwingma - if you click on moogley it shows the pattern being made at different stages... gives the number of chains needed for the different sizes, so it is the same pattern stitch throughout... if you want to print the pattern you need to: click on click here for pattern, goes to moogly, and go all the way down to the bottom where (Print Friendly) is shown - click on that and there is a print friendly page... or you can go under "file" on your computer and click the "save as" to save it to a file on your computer... I always save mine, in case I misplace my printed pattern, so I can always make another copy... Hope this helps you... Thanks for the cute pattern and color ideas!! :)

Pinned this pattern as project to make for grandbabies. Pattern is on site with tutorial and pictures. Looks great.

A lovely afghan, click on print pattern, up comes "moogley" does not look like a pattern to me. I believe what I read and this isn't directions on how to make this afghan. What a disappointment, does this happen with all your listings? I am 83 and not the most adept computer user. How can I recommend this site to my group? NO patterns available, to bad.
