I didn’t intend to make a star. It simply appeared. And right on time for Christmas!
This crochet mandala is beautiful all year through of course. You can experiment endlessly with colours. You might want to try some red and green for Christmas or opt for a rainbow like I did.
Cotton is the best yarn to use for crocheting mandalas I think. It simply gives the nicest stitch definition. For the Bright star mandala I used Hobbii Rainbow, a smooth, matt cotton. I think mercerized cotton is less suitable for a mandala
For this pattern I used a few crochet stitches that are more suitable for an advanced beginner rather than a total rookie. Nothing too complicated though, don’t worry. I included photo’s of every round and there’s always YouTube! Maybe it will be a nice opportunity to learn a few new stitches!
Super fine cotton yarn, a 3 mm crochet hook and a metal ring width 35 cm. That’s it. You’re set to go! (scissors and a needle do come in handy too ;-))
