Crafty people have seen a mandala at some point, even if you didn’t know what it was called. Mandalas are a simply beautiful form of design often seen in traditional Buddhist and Hindu imagery – they symbolize the universe. You’ll sometimes see them in henna, too. But did you know that mandala designs can also be found in truly gorgeous crochet patterns?
Honestly, I’ve seen some breathtaking crochet patterns and they’re almost always mandalas. The level of intricacy and detail in mandalas is totally worth the time and effort. Not only that, mandala designs lend them to truly amazing color combinations because you can use so many different hues. It’s a yarn hoarder’s dream.
Granny square patterns are the perfect way to try out an mandala design. Also, if you love crocheting but don’t want to spend a lot on yarn, a mandala design will keep you busy on a small project for quite a while.
If you make enough granny square mandalas, you can combine them all into a gorgeous crochet afghan. A project like that would definitely become a heirloom! Mandala granny square patterns are a great way to impress someone with your crochet skills. If you’re trying to give a special gift, give these granny square patterns a try.
