Free Pattern: Comfort Pack

April 1st, 2005 · 16 Comments · About My Patterns

Whoa! The April/May Crochet me is out, and it’s awesome!

I created a hot/cold pack pattern called Comfort Pack for this issue.

If you’ve never used one of these before, you’re in for a treat. Heated in the microwave or cooled in the freezer, flax seed and lavender make a fantastically relaxing and comforting combination that soothes the body and mind. Use this pack on your back, neck, feet, or anywhere that could benefit from a little TLC.

    Awesome! I especially find the colour soothing.

    Donna, this is great! With my new massage therapy job, you can bet I’m gonna crank out a few of these to use on my clients! They will love that “extra touch” during their sessions. Thanks!!

    I feel a bit silly now because I bought a hot water bottle this winter…

    This comfort pack is great! I’m sure I have room enough for the it AND the hot water bottle.

    I love it! :)You are too creative for me. I would have never known about flax seed! Now I have to find some around here.

    I love the pattern, Donna! I might have to make a few of these (though I am frightened of the sewing machine that sits right behind me)… :)

    LOVE the comfort pack. You are one of a kind. The creativeness (that is a word, right?) that you have, shows in your website and your crocheted items. I visit your site often. Thanks for all that you do and share.

    mmmmmm….lavender. Well, looks like I need to go to the LYS *again*. ;-)

    Nifty! I have one pack that’s a long tube that was given to me that I use on my neck (I think it has buckwheat or something in it), and I tried making a bigger one for my back and filling it with rice but, well, eeew. It smelled like I’d slathered a bowl of rice on my back!

    Ooh YAY Donna, that’s lovely! :)

    Thanks, Colleen! Actually… all lavender or mint, etc. would not work. You need something to hold the heat; herbs alone are not going to do that.

    That’s very cute. And, if you didn’t want to fill it with flax seeds, something nice-smelling (like all lavender, or mint) would be nice, too!

    This is an amazing pattern! ^_^ I love it so much. You should be very proud of it.
