To scale up to be able to put on a hula hoop. What size hook do you use. Please.

Hello Lucy,have just found your hanging mandala and thought i would make it,but am having a problem,am up to the thirteenth row but it has become like a hat and no amount of stretching will make it sit flat, i'm using a 4mm hook and 8 ply cotton blend yarn from Patons, don't think i have mis read the pattern,but will check, your work is so lovely and a credit to your skill,thanking you in advance, Dee


So inspiring! Thanks for sharing your creativity!


Beautiful Work!!!! I love them all!

WOW your mandala is beautiful, love the colors!
I have also fallen in love with crochet mandala's, you can find my blogpost here:


Beautiful mandala hoops! First visit to Yarndale yesterday...definitely first of many!


Hi, they are so beautiful, any chance you can make the pattern easier to understand please, mandala madness has gripped my fuzzy brain!

Hello Lucy,

These mandalas are very beautiful. I do a lot of sewing and a tiny weeny bit of knitting but crochet seems to be beyond me. I do love these though and wondered if you sell any? I will hopefully be at Yarndale at the weekend with my little girl - I try every year, but have not managed it so far. ust wondered if you did and how much they would be.

Thanks and take care.


Absolutely beautiful and a great idea.
Good luck with your display . I'm sure it will be amazing.

This would be beautiful in a window.


So beautiful! I can see one on my living room wall very soon. Also, any thoughts on how to increase the pattern to make a large round tablecloth? Thank you for all you do, Lucy. Love your blog and all of your needlework projects.


I like these a lot :) they look brilliant on your wall too. You are very clever.


Your mandalas look so amazing hanging from the tree! So whimsical and bright. I always want to practice my scant crochet skills when I read your blog.


All of these comments are spot on--just looking at your photos is a delight! The color choices are stunning, and your work is just beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing! Another reader across the pond in Wyoming, USA. :)

Spectacular! Well done! Wow.


These are wonderful! I think I have a case of Mandala Madness now!

Lovely work...I love them and wondered if you sell your mandala's. My daughter is having a baby and these would be perfect for the nursery.


These are so cheerful and beautiful, but I really should not start another project at this time. Maybe I will anyway. Beautiful work.


I didn't put mine on a hoop but use it as a loose cover for my yarn basket:
great for when I'm carrying it to hook alongs and keeps the dust off :-)

They're absolutely gorgeous - what a wonderful colourful start to my day !
