A Darling Doily...

... Or a Mega Mandala... Not sure which name is more apt.

I used a pattern from a Portuguese crochet magazine called Croché de Filé, nr. 32. I'm sorry, that's all the information I can find in it. I can't remember when I bought it exactly, but the year of publication is either 2013 or 2014.

I made this piece recently as my contribution to Kathryn Vercillo's project Mandalas for Marinke: Kathryn's important and touching depression awareness project in memory of crochet blogger Wink from A Creative Being. It's great to see how many crocheters from around the world contributed to it.

    1. Thank you KT! I used mercerised cotton (I think it DK weight - but it's not on the label so I'm not sure I'm afraid.) I used a 3 mm hook.
