free crochet mandala pattern daisy

This week's Monday Mandala is one I actually started in the summer and it has sat in my WIP bag feeling rather unloved and sad for too long ... after tidying up after the yarn-ado that hit this weekend finalising stock for Afterglow Olney (more to come on that exciting collaboration soon!) I knew it had to this week's free mandala crochet pattern!

This one is made using DK yarn and a 4.5mm hook and measures approx. 8 inches across. 

The cute pom pom edging really sets off that vibrant daisy motif in the centre. 

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!!
