Crochet Keeps me Sane - Part 3

I have long been a fan of Lucy over at Attic 24.  She really is responsible for me starting to crochet, one snowy day, in February 2009 and I've been following her blog ever since.

In 2018 she blogged about Mandalas and it got me intrigued, but as I already had several projects on the go I put the thought in the "To Do" pile.

Fast forward 12 months and I found myself finishing one project but not knowing what to do next.  I rummaged through my patterns and came across Lucy's Mandala instructions.

After delving into the left overs box I picked out a few colours and set to on my first ever mandala.

Once I'd made one I had to make another.  This time in spring colours.

Sent as a gift.  I hope they liked it as much as I did.

When my daughter-in-law saw them on Instagram she asked me to make one for her Grandma.  Who was I to say no?  Colours were asked for and left overs hunted down.

Grandma was very pleased with her gift.

My next mandala adventure is to attach them to metal rings.

To be continued.


  1. So pretty! I can't believe you have become so advanced by teaching yourself, there is hope for me yet - time to dust off that crochet hook!

  2. Once I understood the terminology and stitches it seemed to get easier. I will admit to watching a lot of YouTube videos when I first started and still do if I'm not sure about a stitch. Have a look at Ravelry. There are some lovely patterns on there and some are free.

  3. WOW - those are really beautiful. Such detailed work.

  4. Thanks Mary-Lou. I'm aiming to make some that I can hang in the spare room. I might even blog about them!! :)
