Mandala 1 Finished!

Mandala 1 Finished!

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!

  7. Amazing. I love the colors. I love the overlay. It looks really detailed (and hard to do). What a beautiful piece.

  9. I was wondering how big this would get. Mine already is already looking big and I'm only on round 11 or so. I was thinking it would be doily size, but I guess it will be much bigger.

    Love your finished one and I can't wait to see your second one too!

    1. Thanks! If I remember correctly it went surprisingly quickly... but maybe because I was excited to see it come together!
