Week 1

Rounds 1-14

Pattern Notes:

  • The central mandala is worked in tapestry crochet using two colours at the same time. Always change to a new colour when you still have 2 loops on your hook (to finish the last stitch in the new colour). Then, after the colour change, place previous yarn on top of the crocheted piece and carry the tail behind your work and then continue by crocheting over it with the new colour.
  • Each round should be joined with the same colour as used for the beginning of the round, so before joining, always change to the same colour as the first stitch of the new round.
  • The first stitch of a round is made in the same stitch as the join.
  • Ch2 at the beginning of a round doesn’t count as a stitch.
  • IMPORTANT! To make sure your gauge doesn’t change throughout the pattern, please check it after every few rounds: the mandala must stay flat! Approximate measurements of every part are given in the pattern to help you. For an easy check: one row with tr (in tapestry) measures approx. 1cm/0.39” in height in Our Tribe yarn and 1.115cm/0.44” in Colour Crafter yarn.

Measurements (unblocked)

Our Tribe approx. 27cm/10.6”
