Mandala


Mandala.jpg

This is my very first design.  I used an outline image from a Dover ClipArt book and CD, "Geometric Designs", as my background and laid my stitches over it to mimic the outline.  Then I tried to crochet from the diagram.  This showed me I had my stitch counts way off.  So I marked the new counts on the printout of my graph and edited the graph to reflect the changes.  Then I crocheted this from the diagram.  As you can see, I am not much of a designer.  But it was a good workout for SymblCro.
