Crochet Mandala

Ever since making a dreamcatcher for Little Miss M, Another Birthday, Another Dreamcatcher, I have wanted a similar one for myself.

The design is Tuuli by Zoya Matyushenko.

I made this with Scheepjes Sugar Rush and Rico Essentials 2ply cotton yarn and a 2.5mm hook. Attaching it to a 50cm coated wire hoop from Glitterwitch.

If you make this design, don’t make the same mistake as me and make far too many loops and points on the final rounds – oops – when will I learn to constantly check the stitch count!

Here it is photographed against a turquoise background

Now to decide whether to hang it on the wall or dangling from the ceiling.

  8. Lovely work, Sandra. Have never been even slightly tempted to pick up such small hooks, but do admire those who make such lovely things!

  9. I made one of these which hangs in my workroom – it’s not as complicated as your one but looks quite pretty. Will you add feathers?

  10. It’s quite beautiful and I love how the background colour can give it a totally different look – what fun you could have changing that out from time to time! I still haven’t started mine yet – but have bought the cotton. It might get done this year 🙂

    • I love the way playing with colour can make things look so different. I’m thinking of making another so that I can put one on a white wall and have one dangling from the ceiling in my guest bedroom.
      Will you do yours all one colour or several?
