Nursery Crochet Mandala Rug

I’ve made two crochet mandala rugs for my children’s bedrooms, one made from t-shirt yarn (pictured above) and one made from doubled up 4 ply wool (pictured further down in the post).

The pattern is the same, but the effect is slightly different because t-shirt yarn is much thicker than the wool I used.

The t-shirt yarn is Hoooked Zpagetti from Love Crochet and I used a 12mm hook, also from Love Crochet.

The wool I used for the second rug is just a standard double knit, doubled up to create a chunkier effect, with an 8mm crochet hook. I also added a scalloped edge in a secondary colour.
