Crochet.Community Collaboration #1- Mandala 2015 #1: Mandala 2015

What better way to kick off the new year than with a new crocheting event!!!

This Crochet.Community Creation will be a joint effort, with members voting on “the next row”, the next stitch pattern, to be used.

The process will go like this:
Monday: next row announced (starting with the first row which we have provided below)
Monday – Thursday: members suggest pattern stitch for the next row
Friday – Sunday: members vote on the pattern stitch for “the next row”, which takes us back to …
Monday: next row announced

Participants will choose their own colours — but, of course, can ask fellow participants for suggestions.
The Mandala will continue until you, the participants, decide that it is complete (hoping that this will last the duration of the year!)

and “Psst” …This is a great project for using up leftover yarn from 2014 creations!

So.. here we go!

CC Mandala 2015 Pattern
ROW 1: create a magic ring; 8 (DC, chain1) [note: start with a chain 4 as first set]
(Edit:it was suggested that it is chain 3 not chain 4 for the first double crochet plus chain one)

Answering questions:
YARN: whatever you want … perhaps some people can share what they will be using so others can “copy”, if they have no idea what to use

HOOK: whatever you want … again, perhaps some people could share their plans .

MAGIC RING: I posted a link earlier this year re: the magic ring.. .I posted it HERE

FIRST ROW: make the magic ring …. chain 4 to start (your first dc and chain 1) … dc into the ring.. chain 1.. dc .. chain 1 (and repeat this until you have a total of 8 dc / chain 1 sets.

Can’t wait

Yippie ok started, teal blue magic ring and dc’s complete, got some pink, black, lavender, purple set aside to work it for now, gotta hit up Michael’s to get the yarn for the other CAL, Hubby suggested getting a new set for it so that will leave the left overs I was going to use for this one. Sounds like fun

Debbie Pribele ...

that’s a great plan.
Now .. start thinking about what that next row should be!

Do we know what this will be? Or is it a surprise as we go row by row/ round by round? How many colors do we need? I must have missed something! I’d like to join in the fun though. Thanks.
