This week I’m delighted to share another beautiful little block designed by Crafting Potpourri! I love the zen-like feel of it as the design radiates outward from the center to each of its points!
Let’s learn a little more about the square and the designer behind it!
Susan Hokanson is the founder of Crafting Potpourri which is a page dedicated to all crafts from crochet, knitting and plastic canvas to rubber stamping!
You can find her all around the internet!
A few words from Susan!
I started a facebook page just because I love to share the crafts I do. I chose the name Crafting Potpourri because I really loved the word “Hodgepodge” but it has been taken! So Potpourri kind of gave the same message: a mixture of the crafts I love or have tried.
Thoughts about her newest pattern, Carol’s Mandala!
This square is my first attempt at a mandala. I named it after my sister Carol because she keeps eyeing this square and I know she wants an afghan made with it. This simple mandala is made from two stitches: single crochets and double crochets. I did use triple crochets and half double crochets to square it, but that is the only exception. It is always a wonder how much texture and contrast can be obtained from just two stitches.
At the beginning of the summer, I started a Sophie’s Universe. I loved the changing colors. I really liked the way the colors go together for my second square, and I will be making all of the squares in this CAL from these colors.
Important details about this block from the designer:
Gauge: 25 sc = 7”
Skill Level: Beginner
Materials Used: H hook, 2 colors of Red Heart yarn (the last round of the square will be made with the color you use to join all the squares.
I hope you enjoy tackling this week’s block and you’re looking forward to next week’s exclusive design from Daughterofanace!
