I love the mandalas on this site but I want to crochet a very large mandala for a wall hanging. I am so tired of searching for a pattern!! Wondering why no one seems to make a large one of about 3 or 4 feet in diameter? Do you know of such a pattern???


Comme c'est joli !!
Bravo Lucy
J'adore votre site


Nice to meet you

It is look from Japan.
I want to make, the cute mandala
but, I can't do cute knitting well


I really love the idea! it gives so much life in the room!

Your mandala hoops are fabulous. Love the design and colors!!


Dear Lucy,
I love reading your blog and I love your inspiring ideas!
As far as I know it's your birthday today. Wishing you all the best and have a great day today with your family!!

Lucy how hard would it be to make an afghan with one of these beautiful mandalas in the middle with small ones all around?


Wow this is such a good idea and so beautiful. I have never tried making mandalas before but would love one hanging on my wall. I have the magazine and loads of cotton yarn in my stash, must go buy some hoops!

Thanks Lucy



So pretty!!!!

Winifred Waite

Wow that's so colourful & you have a great way of explaining how to do things. Brilliant!


Beautiful crafting and colours! Happy Sunday ♥

Hello, fist time on this fabulous blog, love the colors and tutorial on this post, I´m knitting and crochet design too but I never made or create something with mandalas, this is very inspiring, and maybe soon I will add some mandalas for my designs, maybe another crochet blanket will be lovely using mandalas.
Happy crocheting


Interesting to see how you join in to the hoop - it turned out wonderfully for you.


I made a long mandala sleeveless jacket thingy once and it looked like my bum had a circle on it for target practice! HAHA. i waved goodbye to it. Jo x


Have you ever thought of crocheting a mandala blanket?


Hi Lucy

I've used a lampshade frame to stretch my mandalas following on from making one as a narrowboat window cover


Ooops! I have missed quite a few posts and need to catch up. Your mandalas make me smile as they are so vibrant and cheery to look at. Great idea putting them in hoops and hanging them, although I have no idea how to do that.So many awesome things that have been made. So innovative and very very creative. Thankyou for sharing such lovely pics.

Absolutely love these hoop Mandalas....I am going to work hard at convincing myself that it doesn't matter if I don't know what I am going to do with!!!!
I must make one!!!

keep well

They are fabulous! Good luck with the autumn one. I too love mandalas, and have been thinking about adding some in the corner of my craft room from the ceiling (smaller of course) and possible on my porch. lol Here's one I made into a throw a few years back, basically three rounds of double crochet (where I added the increases) then three rows of chains and single crochet. I adore it thrown over a chair to just be pretty.lol

Brenda Cupryna

what a great idea using the stitch markers to hold it in place.

Teresa Kasner

That is just beautiful.. real "eye candy". I would love to make one to hang in my tree someday. I'm glad to see you resting up after YD.. what a big production it must be! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Hi Lucy!
This is just the project I needed today. I just finished a fall blanket and I am ready for something quick and fun. I love following your blog. I know I will always enjoy the read and find a treasure or two.
Thank you for all you do!
Robin W.


Really pretty! I only wish that the beautiful Wink could see how mandala making has taken the crochet community by storm. She would be so proud :)

Sorry I didn't make it to Yarndale after all Lucy, but I expect you were rather overwhelmed by fans - hope to make it again next year. Looks like it was amazing - loved the look of the Thirsk bollards & the giant sheep puppets - fabulous!
Well done Luce - you deserve every success.
Much love, lovely friend

Oh lors more stuff to put on the to do list. This is lovely. I loved that shawl pattern but couldn't think that I would actually use it if I made it, except on the hottest of summer days and there aren't that many of those in Wales! :) This though gives me the best excuse to at least make part of it and just hang it on the wall. Splendid idea! :)
Love O. xx
