Magic Spike Mandala Square - 12" Afghan Block

Magic Spike Mandala Square - 12" Afghan Block
A mandala… square? Yes! I recently had a request come in asking me to turn the Magic Spike Mandala into an afghan square. I thought it was a great idea ( particularly for such a busy week). Here’s the result – the Magic Spike Mandala Square! The Magic Spike Mandala Square is a 12″ x 12″ afghan block that retains the look of the original mandala but is decidedly blanket-friendly.

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. 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) 2nd Round (new color): work (1sc, ch2) in every ch1-space, fasten off (12 ch2-spaces) 4th Round (new color): work 4 dc in every ch3-space, fasten off (48 dc, no spaces!)

Tutos mailles de bases et motifs au crochet - LES FILS D'HELENE Article programmé Aujourd'hui, suite à une question d'Annick, je vous propose des tutos expliquant comment faire les points de base au crochet.

Tampa Bay Crochet Nautical Afghan February 2014 I just finished this nautical themed afghan to match the nursery my sister is decorating for her soon-to-arrive baby boy! I designed it myself, with a little inspiration from Pinterest, and figured out how do do all the squares. I've tried to provide instructions for the design below, but I'm not sure I've used all the right terms. If something is confusing, leave a comment, and I'll try to explain better. Honestly, I'm not sure I know how to pick up and drop colors correctly, but the way I did this one was to single crochet around the yarns I wasn't using so that the yarn got carried along inside the stitch. You can see in the pictures below how this led to other colors peeking through. Here's the method I used for each square: After chaining 30, I did 30 rows of 30 sc, changing colors as indicated in the patterns below. ROPE SQUARE (all white): Ch 30. Row 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc). 29 dc. Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), (4 bpdc, 2 dc) 4 times, 4 bpdc, 1 dc With light blue, ch 30.
