Pattern release for "Aryaa Doily"



Hello and welcome to my little blog..!

Monsoon lingered more than usual this year, October heat (local phenomenon here – the scorching heat caused by monsoon withdrawal due to which temperature rises and humidity falls) has become like a myth. This year we are hearing words “cyclone”, “red alert”, “orange alert” more than ever! Cyclones are more common in the eastern and south-eastern parts of India but here in western coasts, its unusual...!! But this year is anyways full of unusual things I guess, so no wonder. Enough of my weather reporting...!😀 I have one good news for y’all, today I am publishing my doily pattern “Aryaa”.

Today marks the first day of Navratri, a festival celebrated in India with much enthusiasm (its particularly famous with young generation because of the Garba parties.!). I always try to narrate the festivals in India in details because that’s my heritage and as most of my readers are based out of India, I take every opportunity to describe Indian culture.!

This festival revolves around the legend of the battle between goddess Durga and demon Mahishasura, in which the demon is defeated eventually, signifying the victory of good over evil. Navratri means nine nights, 'Nava' means 'nine,’ and 'Ratri' means 'night.' Goddess Durga is worshipped in 9 forms known as NavDurga. This 9 day long festival is celebrated by wearing different color outfits (one color for each day), my favorite part.! I still remember, earlier (it feels like a different era altogether), I mean before this pandemic when everything was normal (no restrictions on travelling) and local train was our only option, whole railways platform used to turn into that day’s color..! Going to miss it this year.!

In the eastern and northeastern states of India, the festival is celebrated as Durga Puja, the biggest festival of the year there.! In Northern India, Ram Lila, a folk drama where scenes from Lord Rama’s life are played, is performed.

On the final day, called Vijayadashmi or Dussehra, the effigies symbolizing the evil is burnt with fireworks marking evil's destruction. In Maharashtra where I live, people exchange sweets and Apta (Bauhinia racemose) tree leaves, it signifies good wishes and prosperous future, an ancient tradition. Doors are decorated with garlands made up of marigold, mango leaves and mature seed heads of rice (this is also the harvest time for rice here). The environment is so joyous that it feels like the whole cosmic energy has transcended down.! That’s my India, Unity in diversity, so many different ways and traditions to celebrate one festival.

So coming back to the pattern, “Aryaa” which means brave and noble (my brainchild.), is 12’’ doily made in 28 rounds. I have given two optional rounds (value added rounds). I chose this day for release because this day is special, very auspicious, it denotes the tremendous potential power, the feminine creation has within herself (an ordinary woman has within her).

Lastly before I start giving instruction, I want to thank all my lovely testers, Aparna, Yvonne, Sivapriya, Tricia, Marjella, Lotta & Kamila. Special thanks to Aparna, what would I do without you Appu.!

Here goes the pattern, enjoy.!

Aryaa

 

MATERIAL NEEDED:

Size 10 crochet thread

1.75 mm hook

Scissors

Tapestry needle to sew in the ends

Stitch marker


YARDAGE:

350+


FINISHED SIZE:

12’’


PATTERN NOTES:

Join rounds with slip stitches in the first st made unless otherwise noted.

Pattern repeats are marked within round with any of the following: **, (), {}.

Stitch count for each round are listed at the end of the round.

Groups of stitches are marked in parenthesis () or {}.

Please go through the "STITCH GUIDE & ABBREVIATIONS" section before you begin. All stitches in this pattern are listed and/or explained in this section unless they are explained within the round itself.

It is always best to wash your product by hand and block appropriately.

I have done my best to make sure this pattern is accurate. However, if you find any errors or typographical mistake or have any query with regard to the pattern, please drop me an email on hooksbooksnme@gmail.com

In most of the rounds I start by saying, start your round with standing st and the position where the stitch has to be placed; this is just a starting instruction and should not be counted as a st . Moreover, you can start the round with slip st and corresponding chains for a standing st (such as ch3 for dc, ch4 for tr and so on)

Ch1 does not count as a stitch unless explicitly mentioned.

This round is optional and will be worked on wrong side of your project.

29. Turn your work, we will be working in the loops made by dc3tog (from round 26 – around which we did our fphdc).

Join with ss in the first sc made. Fasten off.       ~ 24 ch2 sps, 24 tr2tog, 48 ch3 sps, 96 ch4 sps, 144 sc

 





Note: This is also optional, I have added one bobble in the centre, just to have extra little something. So to make one, make a slip knot on the hook (leaving a long tail), ch3, dc10tog in the third ch from the hook (the very first ch that you made), ch1 to close, ss in the same third ch, cut off the yarn leaving a long tail. Sew this bobble in the centre of your doily (as can be seen in the following picture).

 

That is it. We’re done..!

And now it is the time for today’s WoW (Words of Wisdom), it is taken from Inheritance cycle by Christopher Paolini. I was impressed by the character “Arya”, a noble elf princess – beautiful, determined, and powerful. Namesake for this doily.

“It's impossible to go through life unscathed. Nor should you want to. By the hurts we accumulate, we measure both our follies and our accomplishments.”



That’s all for today. Hope you enjoy making this beauty.

Be safe and stay hooked to your passion.

Love,

Jessica❤️
