The mandala has spiritual significance for a lot of people but it doesn’t have to be specifically a spiritual thing. It can be a visually pleasing and meditatively relaxing geometric design. Crochet mandalas appeal to me because of their natural aesthetic appeal that is enhanced with the lovely color and texture of crochet work. Not sure about it? Take a look at these ten amazing mandala crochet creations and then let me know what you think:
