No, it’s not a new crime show, it is my latest crochet project.
The pattern is Little Monk and His Lotus Flower by Melbangle (available for US$4.50 from both Ravelry and etsy.) The yarn is mostly Bernat Satin in several different colours, and also some Mary Maxim Starlette. You can see complete details on my Ravelry project page.
The pattern is well written, and it was enjoyable to make. But I was so concerned about doing a good job that I let it just sit for so long. I actually started on May 1, 2012. I finally finished him up on May 3, 2013, which is far, far too long to have taken. But, I’m glad I took my time, because I am really pleased with the results.
