Simply crochet….


This week I got to finish my mandala which I started a few weeks ago, it’s from a book called ‘mindful crochet’ by Emma Leith.

I didn’t use the instructions as to the colours, just grabbed what I had.
I used a metal 30cm white ring rather than the inside of an embroidery hoop so, in that great tradition of not quite doing as one is instructed, here’s my interpretation…
I like it and have made a little film of it in the garden.
The idea of this pattern is that it has been specially designed to incorporate elements of mindfulness practice, including concentration, repetition and creativity.

The benefits? well mindfulness can reduce stress and improve wellbeing. Whilst developing your creativity and sharing your creations with others can boost your confidence and self-esteem.

This takes a little thought at the start of each row and then once you’ve ‘got it’ it’s an absorbing task to go around the circle.

Back soon,
love Rosie
