Sophie's Garden Photo Tutorial

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! ©Dedri Uys 2014. Special design credit to Chris Simon for the use of a modified version of her Lace Petals flower. Resources Translations Difficulty Intermediate Gauge Using worsted weight yarn and dc stitches: 8 rows and 18 st’s per 4” (10 cm) square. Size 19” (48 cm) in diameter.

This time I would like to share with you crochet Mandala that I made last summer but it was put away in one of my many baskets and forgotten((((( . Because I can be very disorganized… not sure if its part of being creative person or is it just one of my character minuses or pluses (depending how you relate to chaos)))) So few months ago while browsing through my stash…ta da I found it!!!

Then I decided that it will look great as a square motif, so I re designed it and now it can be used in many different strait and square ways – blankets, cushion, vests, tops, bags… you know what I mean;)

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!
