Pushed for time? Lost your Crojo? Make a mini-Mandala! A fast, fun, flower design mini crochet mandala with lots of pretty petals using a combination of easy crochet stitches for this week's free crochet pattern for Mandala Monday.
So this week I have been super-busy working on a big but thoroughly enjoyable new project... but I have been missing my regular crochet too. These cute little mini-Mandalas for this week's Mandala Monday are the perfect little project to whip up if you are in a rush, between projects, or lost your Crojo!
Made using a 4.5mm hook and DK yarn, they are also great for stash-busting! Make them into garlands, coasters, embellishments or even gift-tags!
Each one measures approx. 3 inches across, and the name is after our gorgeous new little furry addition to the family who after her day at the Dog Groomers really is a Mini-Mollie - all that fur made her look so much bigger than she is bless her!!
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!!
