2019 Patterns

I have had a very busy year designing so far first up was the most requested Rectangle version of granny hearts

I was then commissioned by Love Craft to come up with a market bag design to commemorate Earth day this is what i came up with I heart tree’s market bag available for a limited time for free on the Love Crochet website

After making so many heart designs I needed a break so back to my favourite thing to create Mandala’s I find them very relaxing The first was the Pineapple Mandala

And then back to hearts with the Granny hearts shawl this was very similar to a shawl pattern i had designed a few years ago as it has the same heart pattern but this time i used the granny stitch *3 dc* lazy designing on my part but it was another requested design so here it is

The next pattern i released was this cute mandala flower called Petals she is 22 inches once stretched on a hula hoop, This was a new challenge for me having 14 bobbins of colour! I absolutely love the finished outcome

In between all of these I have been working on a Shawl and throw that are yet to be released so keep your eye’s out for them!

UPDATE the Bumpy Road to Love Shawl has now been released
