I finished! What a fun pattern! After I blocked it out, it turned out to be about 16.25 inches. It's big. I'm thinking it might look nice on the wall! I just love the colors and may have gone overboard taking pictures of it... I couldn't help it!
If you've never tried overlay crochet before, I think you should give one of the patterns by CAROcreated a try! If you know how to crochet in front loops and back loops, how to do a front post crochet stitch, and how to do treble and double treble crochet stitches, you should be fine! It's a fun challenge, and it's fun to watch the design progress! Or at least I think so!
I'm also making one with size 3 thread! It will be interesting to compare the finished sizes of the worsted weight yarn and thread mandalas. Hopefully I'll show you some progress soon!
Hope everyone's week is going well!
