DIY Tutorial – How to Crochet Mandala Dreamcatcher – Sun Dream Catcher Hula Hoop Yarn Bombing


Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from naztazia.com Today
I’m going to show you how to crochet a large mandala or dreamcatcher using yarn and a hula
hoop. These serve as nice decorations for both indoors
or outside. You can find the written pattern on my website
naztazia.com To do this you’ll need a hula hoop, scissors, a large crochet hook, and
3 colors of yarn. I like worsted weight in 100% acrylic. This is a more advanced crochet project, so
you’ll need to know how to already crochet these stitches. To begin, make a slipknot. Chain 5. Slip stitch to the first stitch. Be sure to pause this video if a section goes
too fast or too slow for you. For Round 1, we’ll begin by making a chain
1. Next we’ll do 8 single crochet stitches in
the ring. Slip stitch to the first stitch. For round 2, we’re going to do a special cluster
stitch. For the first cluster, chain 3. And then make 2 double crochet stitches, leaving
the remaining loop of each on the hook. Then proceed to take all of them off. Chain 3. For the next cluster, make 3 double crochet
stitches in this special way. Chain 3. Proceed around with making clusters with 3
chains in between. You’ll have 8 total clusters once completed. At the end, chain 3 and slip stitch to the
first stitch. For Round 3, we’re going to be making chain
5 stitches around. First into the loop, and then into the top
of the previous round’s cluster. At the end, you’ll chain 2, and do a double
crochet stitch to the first stitch. This positions your hook in the middle of
a loop for the next round. For Round 4 you’ll do chain 5 stitches in
each loop again. At the end, chain 2 and make a double crochet
stitch to the first stitch. For Round 5, you’ll increase the chains to
6 around. We’re going to switch colors shortly, so for
this ending, chain 2, and make a treble crochet stitch, but don’t finish it. Instead, grab your next color, and pull it
through to complete the stitch. For round 6, we’ll do a cluster, followed
by a chain 7 all the way around. At the end, chain 3 and treble crochet to
the first stitch. For round 7, do a series of 9 chains around,
with a single crochet in each loop. At the end, make a chain 4, followed by a
double treble into the first stitch. Round 8, do the same thing – chain 9 around,
with a single crochet in each loop. End the same way as the previous round. For Round 9, we’re going to increase the chains
to 10, single crochet in each loop. At the end, chain 5, and do a double treble
into the first stitch, but don’t finish the stitch. Connect your third color yarn. For your last round, do a cluster stitch,
followed by a chain 11. We’re going to wrap the chain 11 a special
way around the hoop as we crochet. It’s best to wrap a small ball of yarn with
just 40 or 50 yards of yarn. You’ll need to slip the ball of yarn under
the hoop with the hook to position it so that you can crochet the hoop right into the stitches. You are going to find that by using this large
hook, it makes the stitches nice and stretchy so that it fits into the hoop nicely. At the end just slip stitch to the first stitch. Adjust the stitches as needed for your mandala
or dream catcher. To view this video in other languages, click
