Mandala Flowers The above picture looks a bit blue because it was taken inside the sun tent by the river on Sunday. I took a diversion from making bunting triangles and launched myself into Mandala mode. It was good fun trying something completely new from somebody else's Creative Mind for a change, I can't remember the last time I actually followed a pattern for something. These Mandalas first caught my eye over on Facebook, on the beautiful Patchwork Heart page. Heather's crochet is lovely, and her mandala table mats really captured my attention. Me being me, I couldn't resist a little play around with the pattern. I made a couple of smaller ones too, although I found that my shell petals came out a bit tight and made the mandala curl into a bowl. So I used the steam iron hovering technique on them, flattening and re-shaping the crochet with my fingers whilst it was still warm and damp from the steam (no pins).

tapis This Crochet rugs are made by Olga at All you need is yarn, old T-shirts & crochet hook. Now the images will guide you trough the process. And that is it simple but really nice! Thank you Olga for this tutorial! Source Click here... for more great ideas! something pretty – the pattern | mille makes... about this pattern: i found this pretty picture on pinterest and was totally smitten. after a lot of googling and searching i wasn’t able to find the pattern, so decided to figure the pattern out myself. dottie angel‘s pictures of her thrifty find was very helpful, and i was happy to find out that this is actually a pretty simple pattern, so novices – don’t be alarmed! just go ahead and try it out :) for more pictures, check out this, this or this post. about yarn/hook: any yarn with corresponding hook will do, i find that moving up a hook size from what the yarn says makes a softer material that would work better with a blanket. i’ve made pillows with these squares so that wouldn’t matter so much. i used sandnes duo (dk weight) and hook 4 mm and the square measures 8×8 cm, with garnstudio drops paris (aran) and hook 5 mm one square is a bit over 10×10. first a couple of basics: 2. the first dc on row is made by chain 3 begin with colour of flower. chain 4, make circle with one slip stitch

I have been working on this the last couple of days.. in between school runs, mad wednesday, housework (well not really... ) I have made this hat for me!

little woollie Chevron Infinity Scarf Pattern The chevron pattern seems to be a new trend in fashion and design. I've seen a few chevron scarves around, so I figured it was time to write a pattern for it. This adorable scarf will be perfect for fall and winter, and it would make a lovely, personal gift for the holidays. I'd like to try this pattern out with different yarns/weights, too, for different effects. I love this pattern because it becomes mindless after a while once you starting repeating the same row throughout the scarf, so it's perfect for cuddling up by the TV or taking it to-go! I love anything with stripes, and this chevron pattern is the perfect twist on the traditional stripe. You may sell the finished product from this pattern, but please reference and link this post. You can also purchase this scarf from my Etsy Shop and customize the color/design. Materials: Size G crochet hook (4.25 mm) Tapestry needle 1 skein of Latte Red Heart Designer Sport [A] 1 skein of Ivory Red Heart Designer Sport [B] Abbreviations: Notes:

Little Spring Mandala Pattern: Made in K-Town by Barbara Please respect my rights as designer: do not sell, share, translate, or publish any parts of my patterns (including pictures) online or elsewhere without my permission. Do not claim this pattern as your own. Feel free to sell the finished items you’ve made from my pattern! If you do, a link-back to my blog would be great. Material: As usual, I used small amounts of Catania by Schachenmayer and a 2.5mm hook. Some general notes: For this pattern I use US crochet terms. I did NOT write down the chains at the beginning of each round: for the first stitch in every round, work chains (e.g. 3 chains for the first dc) OR start with a “standing stitch” i.e. join the new color with a slip knot or a simple loop ON YOUR HOOK and just work the first sc or dc as usual. I hope I haven't lost you already :) Here we go: 1st Round: start with a magic ring and work (1dc, ch1) 12x inside the ring, fasten off (12 ch1-spaces)

untitled Neat Ripple Pattern Ahhhhhhhh look at all those hooky ripplesome ripples, aren't they glorious? I love crocheting this pattern, its relatively simple, rhythmic and soothing, but playing with colours in this way is also energising, exciting and a lot of fun. Well to me it is any road. there's something magical and mesmerising about the way the ripple effect makes the colours sing and dance next to each other, and it's a pattern I can see myself coming back to time after time. When I made my first ripple blanket last year (finished in August 2008), I followed a pattern in Jan Eatons book (the Soft Waves pattern), and it has to be said that at first this pattern was not plain sailing. So what I've done here for you is to write my own pattern. To start out, you need to crochet your foundation chain. Once you are sure you've got the right number of chains to begin (count carefully as you make them!) yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, bring hook back through stitch (3 loops on hook). Ok so far????
