Mix pretty pastels and hot neons to make a Psychedelic and Trippy Hippie Mandala in this week's Monday Mandala crochet pattern.
Glastonbury festival is over for another year... but here you can beat the blues with some festival inspired patterns to give every day awesome festival feels.
|Crochet Flower Crown Headphones Free Pattern here|
This week's Monday Mandala is a hippie, trippy, psychedelic pastel and neon fusion made using treble crochet (US double), double treble crochet (US treble), double crochet (US Single) and a combination of chains.
The pretty double frill edge looks so cute and is actually very simple to crochet... a combination of treble crochet (US double), htc (hdc), double crochet (US single) and chains.
As with all my patterns, there are no set rules! Pick your own colours, yarn weights and change up a stitch if you want to... I think too many rules and regulations squish individual creativity, and that's what makes Fibre Art awesome!
