I love the many color changes your work is and wonder if you have a simple easy technique of tying in the new color and crocheting on?
Would love any tips and just want to say I love your blog and projects!!

Hi Lucy. Love your mandala wheel. I want to make a bigger one, can you advice me how to do it please? Much love

Rosemary Dargan

Hi Lucy. I have completed 12 mandalas now. I started off with a metal 4mm hook and my mandalas finished at around 18cm along, which is what they should be. Then I changed to a 4mm half rubber, half metal hook and the mandalas around 21-22cm wide.I'm still following the pattern correctly. I have downsized to a 3.5mm hook and am still coming up with 21-22cm. I don't know what's wrong. But I'll persevere. They're looking great. Now all I have to do is to work out how to put them up on my wall (oh, and darn in the ends as well!). Thanks.

Hi Lucy. I have made 10 mandalas and I’d like to put them on my lounge room wall. Can you please tell me how I do this? They are not done with a hoop. Do I glue the back of them? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Rosie from Melbourne.


Hi, Just wanted to let you know that this pattern and your photos are being used in an ebook that's being sold on Amazon.

The pattern has been poorly reworded and carries the name Mandala Wheel, no reference to you as the designer.

This is the link to the book: https://www.amazon.com/Crochet-Mandala-17-Amazing-Projects-ebook/dp/B01N6RH7RF/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

Your mandala is how big after complete?

Just love these, have done a couple and I am literally hooked, in more ways than one. I have tried to make them larger however the edges get wavier if I just repeat and I had hoped there may be a pattern. I have undone the extra rows, and could play around some, but hoping it has already been answered.
Thank you so much.

Hi Lucy, I just wanted to say how much fun I am having making these mandalas. Have you ever thought of putting them together to make a blanket?? I would love to figure this out if anybody has found a way would you please share it. Thank you and keep on making magic with your beautiful patterns.


Hi. Thank you for your tutorial. BTW do you have a pattern for a bigger mandala like 24"? I need one to use on a wall.

Sue Phillips

Hi Lucy! Love your tutorials, how would you make it bigger .say for a cushion cover. X

Heather Anderson

Thank you I have made five of these now, two were for a wheelchair which looked so cool. The first one I followed your pattern, now I just go with the flow & make them up as I go. I love your page. Greetings from Christchurch, New Zealand


Hi - I love these (and everything else on your site!) and have made LOADS of them. They're going to be used for a one-off particular purpose, but after that I'd like to turn them into squares and make them into a big snuggly blanket. I just wondered if you have a how-to guide already worked out for that? My brain will find this a difficult task! Thank you!


Thank you for the beautiful pattern! Your posts are always so inspiring!
Just going to start this lovely one and am wondering how do you or anyone pick the colours to use? they are all so different yet go together beautiful!


Thank you! Such clear instructions, my first time following a pattern and it came out so beautiful. x

Help! I have an acute case of Mandalitis! Is the only known cure to continue crocheting until one's hands drop off? Seriously Lucy, I simply adore this pattern. I've just finished number 1 and intend to keep going with different colourways until I have a set of 6 to be used as tablemats. Thank you for the wonderful and colourful inspiration your blog provides. I only started crocheting in September 2015 and am thrilled I found your blog via the Wool Warehouse website. Please keep up the good work in 2016.


Hi! This is so beautiful, I am loving making it! Would anyone be able to help me get row 10 figured out? The pattern is amazing and super clear so far, but I'm having troubles wrapping my head around just that row for some reason!

Anna Riley

Absolutely one of the best tutorials on the web.I made one and will be making many more.
Thank you for sharing.


This is bloomin' great for using up odd bits of yarn :) Love your blog - it always lifts my spirits. Please do a "Yarndale" show in the South one day.....not necessarily London....maybe Oxford or Bath??? You could re-name it YarnSpa!!

Yola Bergh

Doyou have a tutorial for a half hexagon?

I just finished my first mandala! Thank you for the easy to follow instructions. Wish I knew how to post a pic :)

Rosie Barnfield


Thank you for this - I kept going and made a spare wheel cover for my campervan! It has received many admiring glances. Rosie


Hi Lucy,
I have been reading your blog for a while now and love all the wonderful items that you make. Being fairly newish to crochet I have picked up lots of tips and inspiration along the way, so thank you very much for sharing. I am also curious to know whether you have a copyright on your patterns that you share on your blog, especially the mandala wheel ? I have made few of these, slightly adapted them by adding beads, ribbons etc and gifted them to my friends, but have been asked if I could make some to sell ? Not sure what your thoughts are on this hence my question,and I hope you don't mind me asking ? Best Wishes Kimmi

I want to make a really big mandala to fix round a hoola hoop. Not sure how to continue after row 12 so that it stays flat.

Lorraine Cooper

I love the beauty and complexity of your work, I am a 70s hippie chic so I am addicted to colour but love the monotone versions too. Thank you sounds very lame when you put so much work and love in to,each pattern. But thank you.

ho ammirato il tuo mandala e ti posso confermare che sospeso nell'aria é molto bello. Io anni addietro e precisamente 2005 ho realizzato diversi lavori con i cerchi tra cui la natività che appendo ogni anno all'albero di natale. Mi piacerebbe farteli vedere se sei interessata.Comunque complimenti, sono una appassionata di lavori all'uncinetto e ferri e mi piace molto creare sempre cose nuove. Ultimamente mi sto appassionando al macramé ed ho realizzato dei porta piante.A risentirci. saluti dall'Italia e precisamente da Bari. Anna Maria Esposito.
