Mandala crochet patterns offer a wonderful opportunity to experiment with different stitch techniques and to explore color combinations. Crochet mandalas can be purely decorative in function as wall or table art or can be used for practical purposes such as coasters, place mats, and so on. They can even be used as a design element in a larger project like an afghan or shawl.
Mandalas are commonly identified by their defined center point with a repetitive design that flows around it. Although rooted in spiritual tradition, the word mandala is literally translated from Sanskrit as ‘a circle’ and can be used to mean any type of circular design.
