(This post contains affiliate links)*Namaste friends, How has the new year been unfolding so far? I hope you are enjoying it.
Time to start talking crochet in the new year. I came across a lovely mandala pattern and felt I just had to make one. Crochet mandalas are beautiful, useful, provide instant gratification as well as room to play with colours.
The mandala in the original pattern uses pink, mauve, violet and lavender. I decided to go for a peach and brown combination and I love the way it has turned out. The red adds a pop of colour, while the beige highlights the darker colours.
Isn't it gorgeous!! I am loving it. :)
I adore mandalas for their beautility... no don't hunt your dictionary, I just invented that word. :) It is a combination of beauty and utility!!
And now before you get ready to grab my neck and shake me :) here is the link to the Pattern at crochetmillan.com.
The website has many beautiful patterns and I will be going back for more.
Yarn: Laura knitting cotton
Hook: 3.50 mm*
Dia: 15 inches
This yarn* will give you similar results plus it comes in a range of vibrant colours.
And yes, I have omitted the last two rounds which form the edging of the mandala as I found it a bit lacy for the "solid" body of the mandala. So I just went for a round of scs with picots.
What would be your colour choices for this mandala?
