Embarrassing confession. I am a crochet geek. Just came across this AWESOME picture of a completed Mandala bed quilt and the pattern! Seriously, isn't it fabulous! This is going straight on my Autumn/Winter to do list. (Wow).
8 foot diameter Mandala
Scroll down to the bottom and follow consecutively for instructions for each part.
There is a Video series that takes one through each part of the mandala....I am finding it VERY helpful. (Part 1 here -> ) https://itsallinanutshell.com/2016/03/17/video-tutorial-mandala-mad... (You will find links to videos in the pattern instructions...)
As of today i have completed part 6 and it looks great! :)
wow! this is amazing!
This is beautiful StarLing! I use to crochet! Oh so beautiful!
This mandala is awesome!
I also used to crochet, but never anything of this proportions and beauty!
Ladies, when I saw it I was stunned. I am a long time crochet fan, but I had not attempted something so large. My daughter begged me to try it so she could have it as an inheritance. (She then rubbed her hands and plotted how to kill me...hahah). So I am several days in and have completed a good deal of centre, about third of finished diameter. It of course gets slower as days go on as the rounds get longer, but it looks GORGEOUS. It is really not too difficult as the videos cover everything - lovely lady in the video.
Maybe a winter project?
Oh, StarLing, please persevere, your daughter is right, is a heirloom, but go slow at it, before she kills you too soon! Ho, ho, ho...
this makes me want to crochet again.......I've never done anything big....just small stuff...
