I think it is fair to say that the 4 lovely crocheters who came to my mandala workshop this afternoon had already fallen under the spell of magical mandalas. I hope they went away having learned more about the maths and the ways to make them easier and neater. And I know they went away having already made mandalas to their own designs.
There was plenty of yarn to choose from (22 shades of Stylecraft Cotton Classique DK), copious notes and patterns (I do like to write notes!) and a whole host of mandalas that I have made (some to my own design, some not) which I hope provided the right inspiration.
The four mandalas they made were all different, not just in colour but also in the techniques they chose to practice – definition, petals and maths were all being practiced.
I hope they don’t mind me sharing their designs with you:
Between them, they used almost all 22 shades of yarn!
It was a happy crochet afternoon, and I’m looking forward to the next one!
Happy crocheting xxx

They are all lovely and I thought of you all today! Looking forwards to attending the next workshop !!
It will be lovely to see you at the next one – from granny squares to mandalas in next to no time 🙂
Thanks for a lovely afternoon Valerie! I don’t think I’d have been confident enough to work out my own design before but I’m now sure I could! X
Beware, it is quite an addiction. I’m just thinking about my next mandala now!!! x
