Make this beautiful Sacred Heart design crochet mandala using a series of treble crochet, double crochet and puff stitches with this week's free crochet pattern for Mandala Monday. 



This week's Monday Mandala is a very special one, in honour of my darling, beautiful boy Buzz. My constant companion for 16 years and true soul-mate.

This crocheted mandala uses a combination of simple stitches to create a sacred heart design centre piece for the mandala and some back post crochet to make it pop. Using the gold yarn against the traditional reds and blue really gives the mandala some dimension. This gorgeous gold yarn is from +bmstores  at £1.99 for a ball of 100g.

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 4.5 mm hook and DK yarns and measures approx. 8 inches across.
