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 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)

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!

Blooming Patterns: Little Starbursts Dishcloth This is my very first attempt to create my own crochet pattern, folks. History in the making, right here on this blog :) Actually, I've made stuff up before, but I've never tried to write the pattern down so that other people could try to make it. So, without any further ado, here it is - the newly designed... Little Starbursts Dishcloth Hook size: 5.0 mmYarn: Worsted Weight CottonGauge: Finished main body = approx. 18 cm x 18 cm Nesting Rainbow Owls Here’s a set of wide-eyed Rainbow Owls and a mossy nest for them to snuggle up in. Of course you don’t have to stick with the rainbow theme. These little guys would look good in any color combinations. The owls and the leaves that decorate the nest are made with light worsted weight/DK yarn (worsted weight would work just as well) while the nest itself is crocheted up in lightening fast time with super bulky yarn. I like the contrast between the two different weights of yarn. The heavy yarn looks kind of like bark so the nest really did end up looking like it was straight out of the forest.
