Crochet Pegasus Mandala Shawl Pattern

August 3, 2018
Crochet Pegasus Mandala Shawl

Crochet Pegasus Mandala Shawl Pattern

A while ago, I bought my first Mandala Yarn, but I procrastinated on it for a long time because I just couldn’t decide what to make with it. Most of the patterns I found online were really pretty and intricate, but I wanted a simple shawl as I was pretty hesitant about whether I could pull it off. As a result, I came up with this really easy grid design for my first shawl! This pattern is great for beginners or your first attempt at crocheting a shawl.

Crochet Pegasus Mandala Shawl Pattern

I used the Mandala Yarn in 210 Pegasus which had beautiful shades of teal, coral, and lavender. I wanted very distinct rows of colour in my shawl, so instead of crocheting continuously, I’d cut and join the yarn with a slip stitch whenever it was reaching a colour change. This step is not crucial to the design and it is completely up to you whether you’d prefer working continuously or join a new row for more distinct stripes.

I’ve used only one skein of Mandala Yarn, and the finished product measures approximately 130cm wide by 60cm height. I’m more petite in size so that worked for me, but I do realise that most shawls are much wider. If you’ll like to crochet a larger shawl, simply keep in mind that the increases in this pattern take place at the start, middle and end of each row.

Kelsey the Unicorn Crochet Pattern (Free Download!)

July 13, 2018

 

In our previous post, we shared how Ros paid a visit to the KPC studios in Hong Kong and brought home a set of yarn samples and swatch books. It has been a few years since the both of us started crocheting much more actively because of Operation Overhaul. This year, we thought we’ll challenge ourselves on the creative front. 

Neither of us has any experience writing patterns or creating crochet designs from scratch, but we had many ideas and dream projects we wished to create. KPC yarn was quick to agree to sponsor us with their yarn when we shared that we wanted to create and share a collection of crochet animal doll patterns. All the dolls in this collection are made using the Gossyp DK and 4 Ply line from KPC Yarn.

Here’s a sneak peek at the 2D illustrations that we designed our dolls around. 

 

After weeks of trial and error, frogging and crocheting daily while drafting the patterns, we’re super happy to have completed all 5 dolls! To kickstart our pattern writing and designing journey, all 5 of the crochet doll patterns will be free for download on our blog so that you can create your own long limb toy! Here’s a look at the actual crochet dolls together :)

 

 

We will be releasing the pattern for each animal every 2 weeks, starting with the Unicorn today. Here are more pictures of Kelsey the Unicorn!
