Made in K-town: Little Spring Mandala

Made in K-town: 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 www.made-in-k-town.blogspot.de would be great. Thank you! 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)

free pattern: spoke mandala - a creative being Hurray, free pattern day! :) So many of you were interested in the pattern for this mandala, that I decided to write it down for you all. interweave I have always felt a lot of stress and anxiety. A ludicrously disproportionate amount, in fact to the amount of actual hardship in my life. It may not be my favorite aspect of my personality, but I’ve learned to find the advantages. One of them is a deep appreciation for the power of busy hands, especially the newest craft in my arsenal, crochet.

crochet ric-rac Hey there! What are you up to this fine Monday morning? Since my post last week, I've had so many emails and comments asking about the recipe for homemade, hooked ric-rac, that I thought I'd do a little how to. Before we start there are a few things to keep in mind. I am using US crochet terminology.I usually use a size 2 hook but its fun to experiment. The smaller the hook-the smaller the ric-rac, the bigger the hook, the bigger the ric-rac.I use 4ply mercerised cotton but its fun to experiment with different plies and yarns.My words describe the picture above them.The stitches I am using are chain (ch) and double crochet (dc).

So today I thought I'd chat a bit about the very cool crochet technique called tapestry crochet. Tapestry crochet allows you to create a piece of crochet that plays with colour changes and flat patterns. You use two coloured pieces of yarn and crochet over the colour not in use, so you can alternate between two colour as the pattern requires. That is pretty much it in a nut shell, so if you know how to crochet, draw up a pattern on graph paper and give it a try!

Fair Isle Mandala Pattern and pictures As promised the Mandala Pattern Before I start, there is a couple of things you need to know when working POST STITCH in the round, SOME TIMES I have used the post stitch as an increase stitch but mostly it is a replacement stitch. 4mm hook and Cotton DK. Soft Flower-Square Bev's Soft 6" Flower Square copyright Beverly A. Qualheim 1996, 2016 This is a little tricky (at first) so I have added a few photos that should help. It makes a lovely square for afghans, (even make just one to cover a little doll in BEV'S CRADLE PURSE), shawls, lapgans, purses...! Thread and Beads Infinity Scarf I have a surplus of crochet thread. And I almost never buy it. I think my family finds it at yard sales and gives it to me, or maybe it’s just multiplying on its own, like Tribbles. Either way, I need to get some of it out of the stash and into my life. Maybe I should have called this post The Trouble with Trebles.

Sophie's Garden Photo Tutorial I know there are a few of you who have been patiently (and impatiently) waiting for the pattern for Sophie’s Garden, so I am excited and relieved to finally share it with you. The example above was made using 2 strands of Stylecraft Special Dk and a 5.5 mm hook. You can now find a list of the colours I used HERE. Although this is not officially part of the Block a Week CAL 2014, I know there are a few ladies who are wanting to incorporate this square into their blankets. If you wish to do so, remember to use the same hook and yarn as for the rest of your squares and it will come out the same size as 4 of the other squares. Have fun!

Choosing Crochet Mandala Colors is as Easy as 1, 2, 3 - Interweave Something I hear time and again when talking with crocheters about stitching mandalas is that mandalas are beautiful, but they don’t know what colors to pick. Combining colors into a pleasing palette can be a challenge, but there are ways to overcome your color fears and make a beautiful finished object. It’s all about simplifying. That’s right: creating a beautiful mandala is as easy as 1, 2, or 3. Using a few of the beautiful examples of colorful crochet mandalas from the 50+ that appear in Modern Crochet Mandalas, let’s explore some of the approaches to color you can take when picking skeins for your next project.

Lacy Infinity Scarf, my free crochet pattern I finished my infinity scarf! But it’s still at least a couple of months before I will be able to wear it as autumn arrives late to California. I’m not in a hurry though and I’m very much enjoying summer days. I’m more than pleased with how my scarf turned out. It’s soft and nice to touch.
