About a week ago I made a STARFLOWER MANDALA I posted this photo in online groups and within a few hours I had hundreds of requests for the pattern, I started making another Starflower Mandala so that I could write up the pattern; while I was writing it up a few lovely ladies from various crochet groups were helping me test the pattern. We completed the first phase of the testing yesterday morning after I had finished my second mandala: Another group of lovely ladies helped me run a second test - and I made a THIRD mandala: I was going to do a complete tutorial for the pattern but the ladies who tested the pattern have assured me that the pattern is very easy to follow.

Summer Mosaic Afghan pattern by Julie Yeager This pattern is available for $6.99 USD buy it now or visit pattern website Crochet Giraffe Pattern Amended on 22/06/13 Here is my pattern for my little Giraffe. This is the first crochet pattern I’ve written, so I hope that it’s ok. I’m the master of dropping or gaining stitches, so don’t worry if you do too. Also, I’m sorry if any of the final quantities of stitches aren’t quite right, I wouldn’t worry too much if it’s 24 not 26 etc. 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!

beckycafe crochet I recently saw a similar mandala from a German crochet artist and created this tutorial. I am crazy about these colors, and am so pleased at how it turned out. I've just painted a 12 x 12 inch canvas to mount the mandala on so that it can be a piece of crochet wall art!
