I have so many patterns from Make & Do Crew saved to Ravlery it is embarrassing.
So, when I saw on Instagram that Jess had a new book , I took a peek.
I fell in love with this pattern:
I went through my stash and bought a few skeins to complete what I needed and I am ready to crochet.
However, it has been a long time since I have done corner to corner crochet.
So I chose to start with a simpler pattern.
In the book there is a shawl using Lion Brand Mandala yarn which I happen to have the required two skeins in my stash.
As I was finishing the first skein, I saw that my friend had a baby!
I honestly thought I had a little more time to make a gift…what to do.
Well, using the books instructions, I turned the shawl into a lovely baby blanket!
Luckily, the colors are appropriate for a boy 🙂
This was a great project as I didn’t have to worry about bobbins or weaving in ends.
Mandala is a soft yarn and I have loved wearing my Hitchhiker made of Mandala.
If you want a lovely C2C book, I suggest this one!
This is in the mail today 🙂
Have a great week!
