Crochet this easy peasy mandala using super chunky yarn and a simple combination of treble crochet (US dc) stitches and chains with this week's free crochet mandala pattern. 




This week's Monday Mandala is one for really getting your crochet fix FAST or for if you have never crocheted a mandala and feel a little bit daunted. It's so super easy peasy! If you can treble (US dc) and chain, you are well away!

Made using a 10mm hook, this measures approx 14 inches and with this lush variegated yarn I hoarded after a yarn sale, the colour changes are already there without having to FO and swap on new rounds. This particular yarn is now discontinued.. *cries* but alternatives such as Cascade Magnum and Stylecraft Swift Knit and Weekender can be found!

Of course, as with all my patterns you can change up your yarn and hook size to make it totally your own! Smaller weight and hook will make a cute coaster sized version
