Audrey Dress -free crochet pattern-

Image
Oh my!  This is a lovely crochet dress, yet so easy to make- the perfect example of using simplicity to create something beautiful. If you know how to make a granny square, which is easy enough on its own, then you can make this dress!  Basically you make 2 granny squares the same size, join them, and continue on with the length. This dress is super easy to make custom, and could also be a great stash buster! This is a Ravelry download.

This is my second hula hoop mandala that I've made from jute!  I made my first one last fall, when hula hoops were 'out of season' and it was almost impossible to find one!  When I did find one, it had a bend in the hoop, I bought it anyway at a discount, and tried to get the bend out, but it came back and sorta ruined the look of my mandala.... that being said, this is the best time of year to buy hula hoops (spring!) This lovely is hanging on my black wall right now.  Although it makes for great and interesting wall art, it is going to make its way outside and hang from my garden shed (that I need to paint first). 

This mandala is not hard to make, just a bit rough on the hands! You can easily make one in a few hours. If I could give jute a yarn weight, I'd say it's bulky or chunky.
