This is a first for me. I've never done a mandela nor tried a pattern as detailed as this one. I finished the first part of Sacred Space, by Helen Shrimpton. I'm anxious to get started on the next part.
Love it. It might be worth it to learn how to crochet in order to do something like that.
I agree, I learned how to crochet using a how to book I had picked up at Kmart in the 70's. Was taught to knit in the 60's. I love to do both but tend to crochet more, it's so much easier to fix a mistake. Take the plunge you'll love it.
It is lovely. I can crochet, but prefer knitting.
Beautiful, love your colors too.
Helen does have beautiful designs. It is interesting to watch how many people make the same pattern in different colors and how they all look great together. You are doing a great job.
You are off to a good start.
