This blanket has been more than two years in the making. The inspiration for the design comes from a Leadlight/Stained Glass Mandala that I spotted one day. I found myself looking at this Mandala, and pondering how I could make something similar in crochet. The Leadlight Afghan is the result.

Basic stitches comprising mainly of Single Crochet.
Surface Slip Stitch
Extended Double Treble.

The main body of the afghan is worked in the round.

I would classify this project as intermediate level. The stitches are basic, but a good understanding of colourwork would be an advantage. The challenge with this Afghan is working from multiple bobbins (96 in the final colour round) at once and in the round.
