Sharad Ritu Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

Namaste friends, 🙏

Hope you and your loved ones are healthy and joyful.

The year 2022 just flew by, but for all the good reasons.
After being under lockdown for almost two years, last year I travelled with a vengeance. 😀
But then it meant I couldn't blog, as access to the internet was an issue.

March is National Crochet Month (US) and it seemed like a good time to plunge back into the blogosphere. 

And I come bearing gifts, I mean a free crochet pattern. :)

The free pattern is for a crochet scarf which I am going to call the Sharad Ritu scarf. 
Sharad Ritu is the Sanskrit name for the Autumn season. So you may call this scarf Autumn Leaves scarf or Falling leaves scarf as long as you please give this pattern a try and make the scarf.

Crochet Viola Mandala

Namaste friends,

Hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. 😀

In this post, I have a wonderful mandala to share with you.
I found the free pattern for the Viola mandala a few months back but I did not make one, as my folks are not exactly the "Doily-kind" if you know what I mean. 😉😉

And then guess what! One of my regular customers wanted me to make one for her in the colours of her choice. I was overjoyed.

So here is the Viola Mandala Ta-dah!

Crochet Viola mandala



She has made the mandala in a beautiful pastel blue and violet combination.



For my mandala, I have used Laura knitting cotton which is widely available in India, with a 3.5 mm crochet hook.

Anchor knitting cotton would be a great choice too for this mandala.

The colours were specially requested by my customer. 

I modified the last round to add some scallops.

Isn't it a gorgeous mandala pattern? I just love the final look.
This mandala has flown across continents to its new home.

I think I'll make one more in a different colour scheme for myself. :)

I am sure you will want to make one for yourself. Do give it a try.
