Another beautiful pattern by Zoya Matyushenko available on Ravelry
I wanted it to look a little more open so I made this small variation:
Part of Row
FPDC in FPDC, BPDC in BPDC, – (ch3, skip one BPDC, BPDC in next BPDC) 4 times
FPDC in FPDC, BPDC in BPDC, (ch1, sc in ch3space, ch1, BPDC) 4 times
FPDC in FPDC, (3FPDC around the BPDC, sc in ch1 space, FPDC around sc, sc in Ch1 space) 4 times
This one is sewn onto a 50cm coated metal hoop from Glitterwitch.
First I attach the mandala to the hoop with stitch markers at each picot point, then I sew each point onto the ring going over the ring 3 times. I thread the yarn through the edge of the work along the back, to the next point.
Made with Scheepjes Sweet Treat 2ply cotton in Snow White and a 2.5mm hook
That is Crochet Mandala/Dreamcatcher number 10 made, 3 as presents for my grandchildren, 7 for me. The obsession continues!

I am thoroughly enjoying following Helen Shrimpton’s Cosmic Crochet Along (Cal). She really is an outstanding designer with plenty of challenges to keep you on your crocheting-toes.
Following Part Two came the excitement of Part 3 in which we would be learning a new stitch – Star Stitch!
But first there were a few more rows to square up the hexagon……
The rows of doubles and trebles (US) in this 4ply cotton yarn were getting to look a bit like a string vest in the corners so I decided to add a bit of texture in the form of popcorns and bead stitches.
To keep in with the Cosmic theme, I’m calling them Sputniks
The yellow for the two rows of Star Stitch came from the beginning of my second ball (yarn cake) of Rosewater Cocktail.
I continued with the first cake, which was now moving into the pink mixed with turquoise.
The photo below shows Parts 3 and 4 completed
I was thrilled that the first Whirl just made it to the end of Part 4.
The tail of yarn you can see was all that was left!
