I love love love brioche knitting! I like to refer to it as potato chip knitting because once you start you cant put it down.

I really like Katrin Schubert on Ravelry.

Crochet Mandalas


with Heddi Craft

Calendar Feb 2, 2019 at 1 pm, runs for 3 weeks

In this three week class, you’ll learn all about making crocheted mandalas. In the first class, we’ll start by looking at some special crochet techniques for mandalas, including starting with a Magic Ring, creating “standing” stitches to start a round, and weaving in ends. We’ll talk about color and analyze what makes some mandalas more effective than others. We’ll then get started on our first mandala.

In our second and third class, we’ll continue to work on additional mandalas and learn more about interpreting written and charted crochet directions and forming unusual stitches. We’ll also talk about ways to display these beautiful creations.

Skills needed: Basic crochet skills recommended but beginners are welcome!

Materials needed:

Several coordinating skeins of yarn in the same weight (sport weight or heavier is suggested, pictured samples used 100% cotton yarn)

Crochet hooks to match yarn size (see yarn label for suggested hook size)
