It is not a simple doily, it’s a crochet Mandala!
It is a little microcosm that contains a story, sets in the past or in the future. Spring Mandala starts to the center and grows outward, stitch after stitch, round after round, colour after colour, bringing within thoughts and even some secrets. What emotions there are behind your Mandala? The joy for a new born, a change, a difficult choice, a wonderful day, a happy experience, a new friendship…
My Mandala represents spring, rebirth, fear and force. It is a simple doily in cotton yarn, but I crocheted a bit of myself. It is something unique and special and makes us feel a bit lighter.
It is said that crochet has an anti-stress power, I think it is true if I don’t have to calculate sizes!
Some information about Spring Mandala:
- cotton yarn in white, pale green, medium green, dark green, pink (few meters of each colour). I used an Italian brand, Silke Estate (127 m per 50g)
- 2,5 mm (US B/1 or C/2) crochet hook
- 20 cm diameter metal circle
- tapestry needle
20 cm diameter
Spring mandala is worked from the center to the edge, every round has a different colour (that you can read at the beginning of each round). Fasten off at the end of each Round and join the new colour as indicated in the pattern.
The little arrow in the chart shows where join yarn for each round. You can follow the written pattern or only the chart, both have all the information you need!
Thanks to the testers Cristina, Elisabeta, Ilaria, Isabelle, Miriam, Monia, Raquel, Rita, Samanta, Sunny and Teresa for discovering typos and helping me to improve the pattern!
