Pattern: Rosetta General information Skill level Beginner Abbreviations Ch: Chain 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! This is my first attempt at a tutorial, so please feel free to comment or question if something doesn't make sense. I'm using US terms. Here goes . . .

Crochet Valentines for Your Sweethearts Do you want to send your friends and family something special for Valentine’s Day? Crochet valentines / hearts. I used a modified version of the heart pattern found in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Crochet Today. The crochet hearts in the magazine are coasters. They are larger (12 rows and edging) and do not include a hole in the center.

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. 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!

Cuddly Cthulhu with Free Pattern! Welcome one and all to the 200th post at Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins. Thank you everyone for being here, especially those of you who are long time readers of the blog, and especially those of you who have taken the time to post comments or share pictures of things you've made with my patterns. I've always told myself that I'd keep the blog going as long as it was still fun (and didn't start to feel like work) Now, here we are at 200 posts, 330,486 visitors (the current count while I'm typing this) and it's still fun! I wanted to go back to the beginning and do something special for this landmark post, so I decided it was time to revisit cthulhu patterns. Don't get me wrong, I love my previous incarnations of cthulhu, but I've always wanted to try for one with a more pear shaped head. Something a bit more accurate to illustrations I've seen such as this one.

Regular Crochet Linen Stitch Square ⋆ Look At What I Made Last week I shared the Linen Stitch Manghan pattern with you. It was made using two-colour linen stitch squares, the instructions for which were specifically adapted to eliminate all but 4 tails of yarn. This week I am going to share the pattern for the regular linen stitch square with you. Yes, I am aware of the fact that I have still used only 2 colours per square, but with these instructions you can change colours as little or as often as you like, using as many colours as your heart desires! Each round is a repeat of the previous round, but with one more linen stitch between corners. The instructions below are for a 15 cm (5″) square, but you can continue to add rounds to create a giant linen stitch square, making this pattern perfect for a continuous stash-busting blanket.
