Spiral Square Pattern (Mandala No.1)

YARN: 8ply
HOOK: 3.50mm

Pattern uses US terminology.


BLO= Back loop only


Dc= Double Crochet


Sc=Single crochet

Sl-st= Slip Stitch

Sk= skip


– If working with more than one colour yarn, you will have numerious ends to weave in.  I find it easier to weave in ends as I work the square.

    Just finished stitching it. Added one more round because using my typical 3.75 mm hook it was smaller than the six-inch square I usually make. It’s blocking right now and I’ll snap a photo and get it out on rav/flickr and my blog in just a bit. LOVE the pattern.

    On the last round I did add a chain between the dc groups to spread things out and help flatten the sides a little for my square. I really like the mandala in the middle. It was a lovely soothing bit to make. 🙂
