Overlay Crochet Mandala Tah Dah!


Here it is...

The big reveal...





I have finished this challenging Overlay Crochet Mandala No. 4 by CAROcreated design. So that also means I have finished this fun Crochet-a-long (CAL)

The overlay is really much easier than I expected. I'm pleased with my colors but it desperately needs blocked.  I was going to wait for the big "Tah-Dah" until I blocked but that might be like NEVER, so just in case I took a crappy picture of it but you get the idea right? I was surprised how thick and heavy and durable it is.  It would make a great pillow, (I think that is what I will do, check out the great pillow Casey made her mandala into) or cushion on top of a chair or wooden bar stool. 

The stats are on my Ravelry project page and unfortunately it didn't do much for my cotton stash-busting. It looks like it would be a HUGE yarn eater, but it wasn't. But it did get me started using up some of that cotton.  I have some little projects I am doing with it and I'll show you those later so stay tuned...

I leave you now with some more crappy pictures of my Overlay Crochet Mandala...



Happy Crocheting!

  1. It looks so pretty - I like how the green part at the beginning and the hearts look like tulips. :)
