Ready for your next exciting project of 2019? This year we have asked the talented HanJan Crochet to create a Mini CAL, the details of which are all below:

The Kaleidoscope Mandala Throw is designed to challenge and excite and we can’t wait for all you crocheters to try this out! Whether used to drape on a sofa or spread on a bed in all it’s glory, the 135cm round throw is a stunning addition to any home or garden.

The construction comes from a central round section that has twelve motifs worked onto it in rows which are then joined by a section edging to create the basis for the next set of twelve motifs and so on. Great big chunky tassels finish off the design and add more weight to enhance the glorious drape and shape of the Throw.

About the Designer

Hannah Cross’ inspiration for this throw stemmed from being a busy Mum who was in need of a big and exciting project that could still be worked in bite-sized chunks. This is when the Kaleidoscope Mandala Throw was formed, it is a challenging project that can be worked in bite-sized motifs as it doesn’t have endless ends or joining to deal with. It’s the perfect project to keep you on your toes but is equally easy to pick up and put down whenever.

You will find HanJan Crochet on the pages of Simply Crochet, Mollie Makes, The Pattern Pack and Crochet Now. Creating has always been a part of her life and over the past few years, HanJan Crochet has continuously grown.

HanJan Crochet also has a Designer Shop at Deramores.
