Another Granny Mandala and more crochet

More granny mandala's for the day, I am totally hooked :)
Patterns from Alice

The pattern can be found @ Crochet with Raymond ---> Revisiting the Granny Mandala

Here is my first granny mandala

Very colorful and cool and love them all.

I have found this color chart, primary secondary and tertiary colors to help me decide the colors to use in these mandalas.
Clik here for the link

Something I made with a multimix of col0rs, which are turning out to be a knitted garter stitch cushion cover in progress

And here is my finished basketweave pillow
To learn the basketweave stitch visit Teresa @ The Art of Crochet
The video tutorial is found here
The written instructions here

I have crochet with 5.5mm hook and 8ply 100% acrylic yarn in solid colors of hot pink and teal.
Crochet in one big rectangle, change color when one side of cushion matches, 36x36cm.

Love this cushion, the colors are fab, just made little bit longer and the corners are iffy, but anyways cushion turned out fabulous.

Just found another textured pattern using crochet front and back post double crochet stitch.
Love the thickness and 3D look is called the crinkle stitch. Same stitch on both sides.
Hmmm, thinking of another project to start with this stitch, just loving the look, excellent.
Here is the link to the tutorial for the crinkle stitch.
Easy Peasy Japanese : ) :) :) :)
