Make a pretty floral centred Fall Flower crochet Mandala using simple and easy crochet stitches with bobble stitch for this week's free Monday Mandala crochet pattern.
This week's Monday Mandala is inspired by both the beautiful Autumnal colours that I have been seeing everywhere now that the weather has finally turned and the leaves are falling, and one of my favourite decades for colour inspo, the 1970s.
This one is made using a 4.5mm hook and a gorgeously textured Hayfield Aran yarn from +Hobbycraft and a yummy hot pink from Cygnet yarns.
This mandala design is worked across 12 rounds and measures approx 8 inches across.
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!!
