I am super excited to be launching a new Learn to Crochet Mandalas kit at Yarndale next weekend. The kit includes a specially designed Woolly Chic tote bag, a Learn to Crochet Guide, crochet hook and 4 balls of Woolly Chic Welsh wool.
Mandala is the Sanskrit word for circle and with just one crochet hook and some colourful yarn you can create beautiful stitches in the round, making strong geometric patterns, and end up with a stunning crocheted mandala.
Crocheting a mandala can also provide the opportunity to expand your crochet skills. In the Woolly Chic guide in the kit, you can learn how to work in the round, increase stitches, make standing stitches and by using just treble crochet stitches create many different effects.
To celebrate the launch of this new kit, we will be having a little competition – visit my stand (no. 26) and help to make a festival mandala! There will also be an opportunity to win this mandala at the end of the show.
If you cannot make it to Yarndale this year, the kit will be on sale on our website later this month and available at Festiwool.
One Week To Go!
With only one week to go, I have been furiously winding wool and making up kits and planning my display. This will be the first time I have exhibited at Yarndale and the first time setting up my display in a cattle stall! I received the show plan last week and found out that my stand is opposite the Knit and Natter Lounge, which is great, as it will be lovely to look out on everyone busily knitting, crocheting and chatting! So if you are coming along, please stop by and say hello, as well as contributing a few stitches to the Yarndale Festival Mandala!
