Wonderful! I love that you picked such a wide variety of color to show off the detail. I'll definitely have to check out that technique.

FANTASTIC! It reminds me of a kaleidoscope, I'd love to put one on a bag. Where is your pattern from?

I used a pattern my friend had and refered to his finished version extensively. The next time I see him I'll see if he rmemberd where he got the pattern and let you know!

I did recently get Crochet Master Class (I think that's the title) and it has an overview in there of this technique.

Wow! It's fantastic! I want to touch it and feel the texture and thickness to it. Gorgeous color choices, too! I'll have to add the technique to my to-try list.

I just dug out my copy of the book, and "overview" is a good description. The pattern is for a good-sized pillow (and it's the item pictured on the cover of the book), so it isn't something I'll want to tackle for my first attempt. And, the directions are not the greatest... I wish there were more pictures to show how the technique is worked. Apparently, the featured artist for that section, Melody MacDuffee, has some books on overlay crochet, so I may have to check the library...

Thanks for sharing, fantasticmio!

Holy Moly is right! I never heard of overlay crochet, but this is gorgeous! What are you overlaying?

This is so pretty! And just as interesting on the back side, too!
Yup, definitely purse material. I gotta try this!

I love the colours that you used to crochet this design, it looks very difficult to do but you have done it beautifully.

I believe it's called "overlay" because the taller stitches lay over the single crochet fabric.  (As opposed to being spike stitches, aka long stitches, which are worked through the fabric, or as opposed to post stitches which stick out, but there's nothing behind them.)
