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 £3.80 from both Ravelry and etsy.) The yarn is mostly Bernat Satin in several different colours, and also some Mary Maxim Starlette.

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 9, 2015. I finally finished him up on May 10, 2016, 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.

I have a couple more Melbangle projects to do: a little Buddhist nun and a Venus of Willendorf.
