Just lately there seem to be a lot of quite decorative Mandalas around in blogland, very interesting.
So I did a bit of research and found that
It seems that Melody MacDuffee is the crochet artist who first started to make these sort of intricate Mandalas back in 2003
Some of her patterns are really intricate the over lay is very detailed
Personally I think mine looks more like a crochet version of Fair Isle and very like a Fair Isle Beret
both knitting patterns are from Debbie Bliss patterns on Laughing Hens
Works for me and a technique I will use a lot I'm sure.
It looks complicated and intricate but it is real easy to add post stitch to a Mandala and they are a
great deal of fun to make
Hugs to all x
