Suncatcher, mandala, dreamcatcher..?


In my crochet supplies I found a project that I hadn’t started yet (does that ever happen to you? That you buy a happy project and than leave it for later..?)

I bought it on the Handwerkbeurs in Zwolle, a creative market. That was in february, so this crochet project was waiting it’s turn for some time! The project is a set of rings and a booklet to make suncathers, I bought it from De Kettingkast.


They are present on many creative markets in The Netherlands, and their stand is always very colorfull with lots of suncatchers, mandala’s and dreamcathers. I couldn’t walk by without buying a project.

When do you use which word by the way? When is it a suncather, a dreamcatcher or a mandala? Does anyone know? Or are all names allowed? Really, I have no idea.

Since this was my first attempt to crochet with a metal ring, I started with the smallest one. I chose yarn in blue tones.

Here is the result, my suncatcher (mandala, dreamcather, or something):

I’m very pleased with the result, it hangs in front of my window now.

I liked this project very much, so now I started with another ring, this time the biggest one! That one will have different colors. Which ones you ask? That is a surprise 🙂
