Crochet: Bedspread
This design had no plan, no theme or color palette. The yarn I used called to me as I was cruising online retailers looking for something new, natural, and luxurious to play with.

I wanted to play around with the idea of making a smaller afghan and a wearable piece out of the same design. The idea in my head was to release one document download with two variations included. I thought it would be a fun little twist to the worked in the round mandala designs I love so much.

The moment I read the words on the screen I saw in my mind so many bits and pieces of what could be something amazing. I was intimidated by my vision, and stalled the start of the design by researching. I spent hours upon hours look...
