Part of the Mystery Observational Series for Muggin’s Magic Hang-Out Mystery CAL for 2013-2104.

Beautiful textural block inspired by the Winter Sun, with a fun new technique I call ‘V-buds’ which are worked on the wrong side, and pushed through to the front, providing a textured interesting surface. The result, particularly for the 12” Dazzling, is a 3-D surface that is fun to do, and great to display as part of a finished afghan.

Block available in the following sizes
9” Winter Sun ‘aka’ Dog Days--2 rings, rated easy
12” Corona--3 rings and post stitches, rated intermediate
12” Dazzling Sun--new techniques, rated advanced. Detailed and long write-up

All three versions were well-tested by three people; you can rely on my patterns for accuracy and clarity. If you find any errors/omissions/have any suggestions, please PM me and we’ll discuss changing the pattern! I’m always open to constructive criticism.
