Love the African Flower Granny Square? Try this African Flower Blue Hawaii crochet Mandala and add tropical boho-vibes to your home using a combo of treble crochet, double crochet, and loops. 



I've seen so many beautiful bright African Flowers this week on Instagram in the amazing crochet community and was inspired to incoroprate one into this week's Monday Mandala. This Mandala crochet pattern is 2 for 1... you can make a large scale circular design or a smaller pointy petalled one! It's up to you! Why not make a whole bunch?! 

Some of the shapes may look a little complicated but it's so simple to make. If you can chain and treble, you can make this! 

If you need any help, please don't hesitate to get in touch on Instagram @setfreemygypsys0ul, in the comments below or across social media. 

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. Embracing and celebrating your own creativity is what makes Fibre Art so awesome!!

Mine are made using a 4.5 mm hook and DK yarns and measures approx. 10 inches across. The smaller version measures approx 7 inches across.
