Mandala crochet is a colorful type of crochet that uses multiple stitches to create a 3D effect. Frequent color changes and stitches on top of other stitches (overlay crochet) create beautiful decorations that can be used for blankets, pillows, or anything else you might crochet. In addition to the mandala blocks, we will use overlay crochet to make a stained-glass block, in which black yarn is used to break up the colors and create the effect of a stained-glass window. Students will learn magic loop, front and back loop crochet, standing single or double, front post crochet, bobbles, and clusters, and will complete 3 blocks using different techniques.
Participants should provide 100 yards in each of 5 colors of yarn in the same weight (they can be scraps left over from previous projects); a crochet hook of appropriate size for the yarn chosen; lockable stitch markers (optional); scissors; and a darning needle.
