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

52426166_318737745665407_1615146688161251328_n.jpgThen along came Granny’s garden

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

Or any weight yarn and the appropriate hook works well for this project.
