Crafting Potpourri

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!
