Mandala

Image
Came across a completely new idea (through my favourite Dutch blog ofcourse 😀) and remembered I had a ball of Scheepjes Whirl yarn laying around that would be great for this project. I would have rather used Unicat yarn but I can't find that in stores here at all. You basically crochet a doily or table cloth and stretch it inside a hoop. (we used to make them in the 1970ties, but with thin white cotton, so they ended up much smaller, to hang in the window).My biggest problem was to find a VERY LARGE ring to fit this. Needed to be at least 100cm (40") in diameter. I only found 1 place online and it was close to $100. Little too pricey for my taste. Many people gave me suggestions and eventually I went with connecting 2 hula hoops ($2 a piece at Dollarama) and spray paint. I used up practically all the yarn and it made the mandala 110cm (43"). I'm not completely satisfied with the spray paint. Suppose to be for plastic but here and there it didn't stick very well so…
