Cheerful, Creative, Crocheter and Collector of all things Colorful describes me to a C--er, I mean a T. My sweet, left-handed granny taught me (a righty) to crochet when I was but a youngster. My first project was a hideously long scarf for my dad. It seems I just didn't know when to stop--something my teachers told me in school, too! Although crochet and other craftiness have always been part of my life, I channeled my energy and creativity into teaching Jr. High and High School sciences for many years.
When I am not "yarning" (as described by my youngest), I treasure time with my family, friends, running, thrift store shopping, and learning new creative skills.

Amazing texture and in your choice of colors--this Mandala crochet pattern contains instructions that allow you to make a unique mandala --in multiple colors or even in all one color--using small bits of yarn. This is a great stash-buster! It also contains instructions to make your mandala into a stool cover. It could be transformed into a pillow cover, trivet or wall hanging, too. Just attach it to an embroidery hoop, and hang it on your wall! Work it up in colors to match your own style and decor!
This crochet pattern has been thoroughly tested and is simple to follow with both detailed written instructions, a special stitches section, notes and suggestions, yarns used to make the pictured mandala, and a separate photo-tutorial section to help you through any tricky spots.

4.25 inches (11 cm) diameter in pattern through Round 4. My yarns were mostly about 11wpi. If you use a loftier yarn like Red Heart Super Saver or Vanna's Choice you will need to adjust your hook size down if you want a 12 inch (30 cm) diameter stool cover.
