This pattern is for the more experienced Mochila makers. The pattern has 10 colors and you work with 7 colors at the same time.
Your mandala needs to be perfectly flat, so it will look good when you hang it on your wall.

Please be aware that because of the size of the mandala, it can be hard on your body to crochet it. Especially for your hands, arms and shoulders.

This mandala is made with single crochet stitch through the back loop. You crochet over 6 yarns.

The pattern has 20 pages and includes:

  • Written instructions for the Mochila technique.
  • Links to videos to explain the technique.
  • Written instructions and a graph.
  • Instructions on how to crochet the mandala in a ring.

The diameter of this mandala will be about 60 cm / 23.5 inch.
The size can vary, because everybody crochets differently. If you use different yarn, measurements can be different too.

There is an option for a smaller version in the pattern, then your mandala wil be about 40 cm / 15.7 inch.

This mandala is crocheted with mercerized cotton, 125 meter per 50 gram.

Materials used: (based on 50 gram skeins, of the recommend yarn)

2 skein baby blue

1 skein deep violet
2 skein red

I had not much left of the colors orange, mango and yellow, about 6 gram per color. When you crochet looser than me, you will most likely need an extra skein of these colors.
