Finally I can show you my crochet peacock. It was for my niece at her confirmation yesterday. I’ve been searching on Pinterest but I did not find a pattern I was totally happy with. So I just made this one freehand with inspiration from different pictures found online.
I’m very happy with it and so was she ❤️
The “eye” on the tail feathers is from a pattern found here:
I’ve been thinking about doing a top 10 of my favorite crochet projects for some time. I love to crochet it is my biggest passion and there’s so many talented designers out there. I’ve been crocheting for about 3 years now. I taught myself to crochet by watching YouTube videos. At first it was tricky but I was determined to learn. Now 3 years later I’ve made a lot of different items. And now is the time to share my favorite patterns with you guys. So here we go:
10: Brooklyn boot cuffs
9: Angle shawl
8: Stewie Griffin
7: Rainbow ripple blanket
6: Happy hippo
5: Queen mandala
Facebook group crochet/hekel mandala CAL 2016
4: Lily pond blanket
3: Mandala madness
2: Virus shawl
And finally number 1 my favorite project
SOPHIES UNIVERSE ❤️
What an incredible journey
Thank you for following my blog ❤️
So I decided that 3 mandalas was just too much. They are getting big and every round is very time consuming. It was a tough decision but it had to be done. I will only be working on these two from now on. I love both of them. Can’t wait for next week.
Part 4 of mandala madness is now done on all 3 of my mandalas.
Maybe I’m going to regret that I’m doing 3 when they get bigger and every part gets more time consuming. I don’t know. But I’m really enjoying this CAL. I’ve already learned some new techniques. It’s the first time that I’m doing something like this where I don’t know the outcome. It’s so much fun! And I can’t wait for next Thursday 🙂
This is the pattern:
This one must be my favorite of the 3 that I’m making. Here’s a picture of all 4 steps so far on my springtime mandala. I decided that the last round of part 4 should be in 2 colors. I think it looks great and I’m happy I did it. But it took forever.
My stash yarn mandala madness :
My two mandalas are now up to date. I can’t wait for part 4.
Just got a yarn delivery today. I’m so excited. It’s stylecraft special DK for a third mandala. I can’t wait to show you.
I’ve worked hard all weekend on my third mandala. Part 2 is done and I’m working on part 3. Here’s part 2. It has spring written all over it 🙂 and it makes me happy.
