I was very happy with how it turned out. It is so much fun to pick colors and play with color combinations. I sat looking at it and thought what a nice trivet it would make. Of course it was not thick enough. So the only thing to do is to make another identical one.
Here I am working on Mandala number two!
Ta-da! Two complete and now I get to crochet them together. I used a double crochet with a picot every fourth stitch.
Here is the finished article with both sides being identical and looks so cool with my teapot perched on it.
What? Another Mandala? Yup, this one is a pot holder. Also double so those hot pot lids and handles don't burn your hands. This was such a fun project to work on and two finishes in a day - that is awesome.
