Top Tip:  Tease the 3ch to the front of your Mandala so that it forms a "bead"

Rnd 13:  Join a new colour.  2ch, miss 2st, 1htr in next st, 6ch, sl st into 4th ch from hk (this makes a picot).  3tr in sp created by beginning 2ch & htr.  *Miss 2st, 1htr in next st, 6ch, sl st in 4th ch from hk, 3tr in sp created to the right of the last htr; rep from * to end putting final htr in joining ch (not the st from Rnd 12) 6ch, sl st in 4th ch from hk, 2tr & join with a sl st into 2nd ch of beginning 2ch. Fasten off & sew in ends.

And here they both are!
Ta - Dah!

Now for more Crochet News:

Do take a look at this fantastic blog post by Vicky
It's all about Granny Squares & includes my bag!

In class today, we also finished off KPK's scarf which she is making from Erika Knights "Crochet Workshop" book
There was a slight twist though as I suggested that instead of sewing one seam to the other that we tried a Join as you Go method which worked very well!  She also decided to finish of the edge with a simple chain & sl st in this lovely "meadow green"

And finally...
