Make this big, bright, and beautiful flower Bohemian Mandala 'Blue Bubblegum Betty' using a fun combination of treble crochet, double crochet, htc and chains with this free crochet pattern.



This week I have been inspired by lots of big bold colours and creating a bright boho home for our little get-away retreat on the water. 

This big bright Crochet mandala with a cute 3d flower in the centre is perfect for transforming cushions and tables or turning into Boho Home Wall Art and is a lush 13 inches in diameter!

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

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!!

I used a 4.5 mm hook and a variety of DK yarns from +Hobbycraft and a magical colour changing Aran yarn I picked up from +Poundstretcher for just £3.99 for a mahoosive 500g ball! 

if you need any help at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch on Instagram @setfreemygypsys0ul or across other social media!
