For more about tapestry crochet and this project, please look at the November/December 2011 issue of Crochet Today! and my blog posting about it and my web page. This project is pictured in the issue, but the pattern is only available online.
My own original intarsia crochet, inspired by Xenobia Bailey's beautiful mandalas. These are roughly in diameter and took well over 100 hrs a piece. Great way to get rid of all that cheap acrylic bargain yarn!
