Attaching the mandala to the hoop

There are multiple was you could attach the mandala to the hoop:

  • Use pieces of yarn and a tapestry needle to fasten the mandala to the ring at certain points. Crochet the mandala into the hoop. Make sc around the hoop, and attach a part of the mandala after an x amount of stitches. Refer to my video on YouTube for extra help (https://www.youtube.com/KimHaakt/). It’s only in Dutch, but I think it shows clearly how the technique works.
  • Threading the mandala in the ring. Take a long piece of yarn and thread it along the ring and pieces of the mandala
  • Use metal jump rings to attach the mandala to the hoop. I have used 4mm jump rings to attach the mandala to my 6 inch hoop and pliers.
