What is a crochet mandala used for?
A mandala is typically a circle with inspiring colors and patterns. Mandala is the Sanskrit word for ‘circle’, and has spiritual significance in Hinduism and Buddhism. Crochet mandalas can be used as coasters, hot pads, wall decorations or simply as colour therapy.
Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?
If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
