My newest hobby is crochet.
I love creating things which are unique and made especially the way I like them.
This Mandala is no exception to that rule. I want to frame this and hang it on a wall along side of my photography.
You may tweak this pattern to make you happy, as I have. Choose any hook, yarn and colors to suit your style or make your heart happy!
(I think it would look great made in the ‘Cool Breeze Ombre’ color of Sugar ‘n Cream and hung in a kitchen; don’t you?!
Abbreviations for crochet:
I used the following to create mine:
“H” crochet hook
1 2oz. skein Lily Sugar ‘n Cream “Country Side Ombre” (with some leftover to use for another project!)
