The Crochet Rainbow Mandala Waistcoat by Sara Huntington’s  pattern is worked in rounds of lace from a central colour wheel – with armholes positioned part way round, and the top folds over to form a collar.

The soothing process of working the colourful stitches of a mandala is amplified with this creative project. Vibrant lacy rounds radiate from a central colour wheel, resulting in a breathtaking sleeveless garment that hangs beautifully and is a joy to make.

The Crochet Rainbow Mandala Waistcoat length from the top of the shoulder to the lowest part of the shawl is 74cm. It measures 36cm across shoulders between the armholes, and 54cm across the bust line at the back between the armholes.

The model in this photo is a UK size 8 and given these measurements, the shawl will comfortably fit up to a size 14 – but if you want to make it in larger sizes, please see our update below.

You don’t have to limit yourself to just a skinny or average woman, but also a fatter woman without any problem. Even because all women have the right to wear what they like regardless of their weight, size and stature.
