Introducing Square #2: Magic Spike Mandala Square! CLICK HERE to go to the pattern page.
Above is the original, made with 4 colors. This square has an interesting stitch and looks fun to make.
Here are my notes!
- I know this looks like it could be complicated but let me say it’s not! I have tested this pattern myself, and with the helpful photo in the pattern, this is a fun and easy square to make!
- I didn’t need to crochet up the last round because I was at 12″ when I measured.
- I used Red Heart With Love, and here are the colors I used in order: Rnds 1-2: Bubble Gum Pink, Rnds 3-4: Lettuce, Rnds 4-6: Plum Jam, Rnds 7-8: Lettuce, Rnds 9-10: Bubble Gum Pink, Rnds 11-12: Lettuce, Rnds 13-14: Plum Jam, Rnd 15: Lettuce
Having said that, I know that this square has been tested and comes with an awesome photo tutorial!
Thanks for crocheting~along with me!
