Late Friday night (so late it was in fact already Saturday!) my hands were too cramped to crochet anymore. I was sitting at my desk doodling with my colour pencils and koki pens (please do not laugh - it WAS really late!).
I had a lightbulb moment - make the doodle
into a crochet motif! Grabbed a hook and a heap of yarn scraps and hooked up a very "rough" draft
Yesterday morning, using my Stylecraft
Special DK and a 3.50mm hook I started working on an improved version of the idea
Lots and lots of stitches and a couple of movies later and it was done!
17 Rows of colourful fun crochet!
Measuring 33cm in diameter!
The STARFLOWER MANDALA!
I scribbled the pattern as I went along - but it needs a LOT of tidying up. Making a second mandala so that I can sort out the pattern and make a tutorial to share.
