Mandala Madness....

It seems Mandalas are back in favour again...
The Fairisle Mandala I did in 2012 is still being used so I thought an update on other Mandalas I have done since 2012 would make a interesting post.

True Meaning of Mandala far more than just a circle!



 Always lots of new stitch combinations to use in the round....

Fair Isle Mandala above.....can be made into a cushion or place mats works a treat..link below for pattern
I have a photo album of Mandalas on PINTEREST with some lovley designs some with patterns.

    1. Hi...they look great hung up as wall art but several of mine are made into cushions or circular stool covers....mandala is just a name given to crochet in the round...it's really a religious symbol with all sorts of meanings usually a square in a circle but there are variations
      Little bit of info for you
