Crochet Mandala inspired Dreamcatchers

image

This was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable projects I have worked on. I used a number of different patterns for mandalas and altered the pattern to suit my needs.

All patterns use Arbee 10mm metal ring. I got mine from Spotlight. I also used Moda Vera Gelato in various colours and a 2.5mm hook.

1.Based on Little Spring Mandala

Follow the pattern until the end of Round 6a. I then joined to the ring doing 3sc into each ch2 space from the previous round and making sure to go around the ring with each sc. Join and fasten off.

I decorated all of my dreamcatchers with three chains joined to the ring with a slip stitch, threaded a couple of beads on then tied a knot to secure the beads.

2. Based on Hakuna Matata mini Mandala

I chose to do these in football team colours.

Follow the pattern until the end of round 4. Crochet round 5 but crochet around the ring.

Based on Starflower Mandala

Follow the pattern until the end of Round 4. Sc around the ring joining to mandala pattern at star points.
