Make this colourful carnival floral design crochet mandala using a series of treble crochet, double crochet and puff and spike crochet stitches with this week's free crochet pattern for Mandala Monday.
Now we are well into September, this week's Monday Mandala uses a rich purple yarn for Autumnal feels.
Made using a 5 mm crochet hook and DK yarn, this pretty floral centered crochet mandala mixes traditional doily with modern colour pow crochet.
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!!
This one is made using a 5 mm hook and DK yarns and measures approx. 8 inches across.
