Oasis

I finished “Oasis” from the magazine “Puntorama Ganchillo” issue #229. Even though the magazine appears to be distributed primarily in Mexico and Venezuela, this pattern was designed by Fujiko Takagi and has a distinctive flavor characteristic of many other Japanese designs I’ve seen. The finished product measures about 29 inches in diameter and I’m really pleased with how it came out. It will be a housewarming/engagement present for an awesome seismologist/educator/nice person extraordinaire.

This is so beautiful. I love to crochet too. I have one similar that my grandmother made and I made four myself the size of coasters. Thank you so much for sharing.
