Crochet Raised Twist Mandala
The Raised Twist Mandala is the next lesson of providing, even more, three-dimensional looks to your mandala. What you cannot see from the top angle is the amount of lift and dimensions that are in this mandala.
Firstly, the tangerine round going to the centre of the motif appears to be a separate entity as it completely lifts up based on the next round after it. It’s pretty cool.
Next, in round 7, we will do front post double crochets and due to their being 5 of them, it gives the illusion that the yarn is doing a raised twist effect. It’s just the stitch doing its magic.
Use your own creativity to change colours as often or list as you wish.

Comments on “Crochet Raised Twist Mandala Pattern”
The written pattern calls for an Extended Single Crochet stitch and you are saying ESC but what you are showing is a single crochet stitch. I did the ESC as the pattern calls for.
I’m not entirely sure what the difference is myself, but hope you got it to work out for you!
In explanations of the stitch in various sources, books, tutorials, and such, that I have accessed over the years, the Extended stitch, either single, half double, double, or double crochet stitch are extensions of the height of the stitch. My concern is although the pattern calls for an EXC and Mikey called it an EXC while he is working the stitch he is actually showing an SC (single crochet). For those that do not know the difference, they will think and learn that what he is calling an EXC is the same as an SC which it isn’t. Just want people to learn the correct stitches.
This is an excerpt from an instruction book.
“The Extended Single Crochet Stitch is a variation of the Single Crochet, but we add an additional step in the process of making the Single Crochet that gives more height to the stitch.” and a different texture.
This is a video showing the correct EXC. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=extended+single+crocthe+stitch#kpvalbx=_7u_wXp7fNu2U0PEP2IiDwA829
I hope this helps.
Thank you for the clarity. I will look further into your explanations. You are making complete sense.
You say to do an EXTENDED single crochet stitch around the post in round 6. What you are showing is NOT an extended single, it is just a single crochet stitch around the post. The written pattern calls for an extended and that is what I did.
