Attic 24 Mandala

What really got me started on all this mandala making was this post.

Lucy from Attic 24 has asked people the world over to crochet a mandala and send it to her so that she can create a breathtaking wall display of mandalas for Yarndale. When I read her request I was giddy with excitement imagining how absolutely stunning such a display will look; I knew I had to be a part of this.

This is the mandala I made to send off:
The pattern is the same as this one I showed you last week, though once I finished this one, I realized that I had misread the pattern on the first mandala (nothing major, just a few too many stitches making for a larger mandala than is wanted for Yarndale).

The larger mandala has found a home under a spider plant on my dining room table.
And my contribution to Yarndale has been mailed. I am so excited to see how the display comes together, to see all the colorful crochet, and to hear from where in the world all the mandalas came from.
I currently have one mandala on my hook and several new ideas for color combinations floating around my creative mind. I know I said I wasn't going to buy any more yarn until the big yarn sale in the summer but I may need to pick up just a few small balls of cotton so that I can keep going. Because I just can not stop making these wonderful circles.


  1. Brilliant link to Yarndale. So enjoyed reading about mandalas and how you're using yours. Thanks, am inspired to take part. Strange to think l heard about it from the US when it's held not so very far from where l live.

    1. I do hope you take part, but be warned, making these is addictive. Have fun. I'd love to see what you create.
