Crochet Yourself a Sophie’s Universe Today

What a beautiful pattern by Dedri Uys! This is the second Sophie’s Universe I have done and it is so much fun! There is so much variety and creativity in this pattern that it’s hard to believe a mere human could have written it. Genius!!!

Did I mention that it’s actually not that hard? I mean, if you are a beginner with some experience in reading patterns and you want a challenge, you can do this! Dedri Uys explains each round in so much detail and includes pictures of each step along the way.

Oh, also, Sophie’s Universe is available for free online! Just google it. Buy a bunch of yarn in colors that you love and do this. You will have such a sense of accomplishment afterwards and your self-confidence as a crocheter will be sky high. And, of course, you will have a priceless one-of-a-kind heirloom afghan!

Sophie’s Universe #1 (2019)


Atlanticus is a beautiful pattern designed by Vanessa Smith of Hooked on Sunshine. It’s a mixed stitch blanket with a stunning mandala center that was surprisingly easy to crochet. (The blanket pictured above was made by me in a really short amount of time considering the large size.) The pattern can be found for free on Ravelry, along with pictures of completed blankets in every imaginable colorway. Happy crocheting!
