Crochet Notes - Mandala and Bunting


My friend wanted me to help her decorate her new textiles classroom, she asked for crocheted bunting in blues, pinks and purples and a rainbow mandala - I think I've fulfilled the brief. I;m leaving her to string the granny triangles. 






I used double knit oddments.
The granny triangles were from Yuletide and the mandala was Crochet Mandala.

Crochet Notes - Summer Scarves

I have made another of my favourite crocheted summer scarves - All at Sea, this time in fine crochet cotton. Petra 8 - with a 3mm hook, I called it Rosie Wrap.




I also added beading along the side edges and 3 points - as is my way with these scarves. I also added beading to a previous scarf - Ice Cream.
