A Starflake for the New Year

starflake mandala_1721

Coming off snowflake mania I needed to let myself down gently. I found the pattern for this cool Starflake Mandala on the Loopy Stitch blog. It’s a bit of a cross between snowflake and mandala. I used Patons Grace, a sport weight cotton yarn, and 2.75 mm crochet hook for this. Check my Ravelry project page for colors used and all the technical details.

To tell the truth, I did make a starflake during snowflake season using size 10 crochet thread. Starflakes_1740

As you can see it’s quite a bit smaller, it’s ok but I think it looks nicer in the sportweight yarn. You can see the project details for the thread one here.

These were fun to make and I’d definitely recommend trying the pattern in DK or Sport weight yarn.
