Crochet sun wheel mandala

Crochet sun wheel mandala

So this is my first crochet design for a mandala, I always wanted to try one. With the rich colors and whirlpool from the center created by lattice treble crochet, I thought Sun wheel mandala is an appropriate name.

Materials: ( I used)
6 mm crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn: yellow, light orange, light pink, pink, orange, red
Yarn needle
Scissors

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

Cricut is Easy as 123

Special stitch used: lattice treble (triple) crochet – make a tc under the fpdc or lattice tc from round before last.
