Mandala Making

I do love flitting about between projects!

This week my weaving obsession has subsided a bit and I’ve concetrated on a bit of crochet mandala making!   I follow Attic 24’s blog and she recently posted about her mandalas and included some links to patterns.  It was just the right time for me as I had some Stylecraft Classique Cotton to use and I always love trying new yarn so bought some Ricorumi as well to extend my colour choices!

PFirst I made the  ‘Positivity Mandala – a free pattern from Attic 24. My colour choices represent the hot summer sun in the bright azure blue summer skies!

It would make a lovely table mat!

Next I made the Dreamcatcher Mandala pattern by The Loopy Stitch.

Although both would make pretty table mats I decided they would have more effect hanging in our summer room inbetween the fairy lights so they look good Day or night!

Attic 24 used metal craft rings to hold the mandalas and so I did the same. I got my rings from Glitterwitch who had them in stock and had very reasonable postage!

Now the only question is ….. how many do I make?!!!

  1. These are stunning. I made a little crochet mandala a few weeks ago with the kit that came with Mollie Makes Magazine and loved it. I gave that one away as a gift, I must get organised and make some more to keep.
    Thanks so much for joining us at Handmade Monday 🙂
