Mandala CAL Update
I finished my Crochet Overlay Mandala No. 1! It was such a fun pattern, and I can't say enough about how great a pattern it was! Being very well written, it's a fantastic way to learn this crochet technique.
For yarn, I used Vanna's Choice (which is a worsted weight), and a 4.0 mm hook. At first I thought my hook size was too small because the mandala started to ripple a bit, but blocking took the ripple out.
The finished sized turned out to be about 13 1/4 inches in diameter. I think I'm going to turn it into a wall hanging... maybe put it in a frame?
And since I liked the pattern so much, I thought I'd make another out of cotton yarn. I think it could make a nice largish trivet for the table! For this one I'm using Loops & Thread cotton, which I'm finding very soft to work with, and a 4.0 mm hook again. I'm really liking these colors together.
