This pretty floral crochet mandala comes to us from the blogger at The Grange Range. Dit-elle, “I am a mother of four grown children so I now have the luxury of time in which I can indulge my creative self. I like exploring woolly projects in the evening and at weekends, and I love to knit and crochet.”
