Embrace the chill and snow with the Midwinter Mandala from “A Banner Year”, the seasonal stitch-along from the School of Wool. Designed to use simple materials–a fat quarter, large pieces of felt or wool, and thread for embroidery–it’s a perfect project to cozy up with on cold winter days. Instructions are provided for finishing and hanging as a banner, but it can easily be turned into a 16″ x 16″ pillow or mounted in a hoop.

Finished Banner: 16″ x 19″
