Hi Lucy. I too would love the pattern for the Mandala. The colors are fabulous! I wish I could design and do the math,but alas I haven't figured it out. I love to read your blog and enjoy all the wonderful pictures you have posted. Thank you for all your inspiration. Lots of hugs to you and yours.



I too, would like the written pattern for the Mandala.
You've done an amazing job in the square blanket tutorial. Think you could refer people to that and to any round tutorial too.
I did the Blooming cushion many years ago as a thank you to the person who bought me a stack of yarn for my birthday one year.
That math can be fun/trial.
Made a round baby blanket a long time ago and as my tension was out, the number of stitches was out too by the time it was wide enough. Bit of work to get the correct number of stitches to start the lovely border after I worked out what the repeat was and how many extra repeats I needed to do. Fun N games. :-)

Definitely would like the pattern for the Christmas Mandala. It is gorgeous!! It is just what I need to perk up my holiday displays.

I was so hoping for a Yuletide garland!! A few years ago I made an Autumn garland inspired by yours and I hang it on the buffets shelf and in spring have shamrock one. I so love seeing your crochet projects and the walks in the countryside. And I too love mossy rocks, my parents acreage in Oklahoma USA has several large ones, some like giant path stones and others protruding a foot and more out of the ground, very fun to play on as a child. Anyway, my favorite as I got older was a big square one with patches of moss, loved to sit and read there. Looking forward to the rest of your Blogtober posts and the garland and mandala, hopefully with a pattern. Bet a hat would be striking in it! So many projects and so little time. Love your blog, thank you so much for it.

Yes yes yes. Yearning to travel back to see you again. One day ❤️


It would be great if you could provide a written pattern or tutorial for this mandala. It will make a wonderful Christmas accent!

thank you,


Gillian McM

Oh yes please, Lucy!! I would love to make lots of that mandala for presents! Such comfort looking at Tilly on the blanket, enjoying the flowers, imagining myself back home in England. Thank you so much for years of this comfort.

Thank you, Lucy, for your attention to detail and many hours of work to bring us joyful designs. A written pattern for the mandala would be most welcome! I'm sure I'm not alone in dreaming of making a few as gifts- and of course one for myself to go with my Yuletide blanket!

Kristin Eoff

Have you published the directions for that mandala with the ruffly pink border? It's the one under your yellow vase. It's so pretty.

Mary Murphy

Hi Lucy, A photo tutorial would be so helpful, thank you.


Very cheerful! (It's a shame that Wool Warehouse has been out of stock of Yuletide packs for several weeks though.. :-()

Diane Smith

So very pretty and festive. Well done.

Eileen Burke

A written pattern would be lovely, would love to have a go at making the mandala


Gorgeous pattern for the table Mandela - would love one thank you. I can’t pass up gerberas either - one of my favourite flowers!

Gill Wills

I love that pattern, the colours are so warm and squishy. I don’t think you can put that blanket away yet not when the weather’s so horrible you need warm, squishy colours to keep you warm inside and out. Definitely a “yes” to the pattern from me.


Yes, please! A picture tutorial is always so very helpful.


Your mandala is so pretty! The scalloped edge adds such a wonderful touch. Good for you for keeping track of the pattern while you were working on it.


This is so beautiful! I'm half way through my Yuletide blanket and loving it and I'd love the pattern to make Mandela's to match! Thanks Lucy for all the inspiration xx

Eleanor MacLean

Your mandala is beautiful! I would love to have the pattern, and would probably do one at least for all the seasons!


Love it!!!


I know it’s a lot of work but I love your tutorials. I’m really a knitter but can’t help having a blanket or two on the hooks, especially during lockdown. Having your colourful photos and lively captions makes me feel as if I’m playing with you.


Absolutely love your mandala, I would make one with fall colours first and then with the yuletide leftover yarn. Love reading your blog.

Manuela Molteni

i love love love it!!!! I think I will try some variant of Autumn shades.... Hoping you'll be inspired to post the pattern!! Thanks for your amazing creativity and generosità.

Wendy Bassett

Wow Lucy, you are so clever! I'd love to have the pattern. I much prefer the round version - no idea why! 🙂

Julie Mutchler

It's beautiful Lucy! I'm thankful for those who can do the math and make it work! Please, would you consider a picture tutorial along with the instructions. Some of us are just learning and your pictures make all the difference in the world. I love when you use the needle to show where to put the hook. Thanks for all of your inspiration!
