    Pull the yarn a bit to close the circle, but make sure you don’t pull too hard; we want to keep this faux stitch we just made! :) We’re going to close rounds like this after every round from now on. Finish off.

    Pull up a loop, yarn over, through loop on hook, and make a sc in the next stitch, a hdc in each of the next two stitches, and a dc in the sc of the previous round.

    Step 23

    We are now going to make the elongated double crochet. Wrap your yarn around your hook 10 times. (11 loops on hook: 10 YO’s + the loop from the last dc we made)

  • How to make a crochet. Spoke Mandala - Step 24
    Step 24

    Insert your hook into the front loop of one of the dc’s of round 1. Pick the loop that is directly underneath your wedge, to make the spoke a straight line.

    Pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops, *YO, pull through two loops,* until you’ve reached the top of the stitch.

  • How to make a crochet. Spoke Mandala - Step 27
    Step 27

    Continue around the circle with *2hdc, 2sc, 2hdc* in each wedge, a dc in each sc, and a spoke after each dc. You’ll notice that there are 14 wedges and only 12 front loops available; work the left and right spoke of one wedge into the same front loop, and repeat again at the opposite side of the circle. You’ll have to check and see which spokes would look good into one front loop stitch. Just make sure there are 5 spokes between each ‘double spoke’, to make it look even.

    Step 28

    Once you’ve reached the end, cut the yarn and pull through. Finish off like you’ve done before.

  • How to make a crochet. Spoke Mandala - Step 29
    Step 29

    Start with a standing stitch, work 1dc around through both loops. Finish off like you did the other rounds. And that’s it, you’re done! :)
