Crocheting a “Sophie”

I can’t remember how I stumbled upon this pattern, but it was love at first sight. I’m one of those people who thinks the majority of crocheted things lean toward ugly, so this pattern really blew my mind.

Sophie’s Garden started off as just the circle part…Sophie’s Mandala. Then after it squared up into a “garden” the designer kept going until she had “Sophie’s Universe“…a blanket up to 6′ square. There’s a CAL (Crochet-Along) happening right now and I’m doing it as best I can.

Here’s my mandala:

If you’d like to try crocheting this yourself, the pattern for the CAL  starts here. If that page overwhelms, the actual instructions begin here.
