Awhile back I did a roundup of some of the most beautiful crochet mandalas I’ve seen online. But what if you want to make your own? There were a few links to patterns in that post but here are seven more excellent crochet patterns for mandalas. This roundup includes both free crochet patterns and ones that you can buy.
1. Barbara’s Little Spring Mandala
Barbara from Made in K-town shared a free crochet pattern for this beautiful springtime mandala.
2. Overlay Crochet Mandala Pattern
Etsy’s CAROcreated sells the PDF patterns for overlay crochet mandalas including the pattern from this one:
I really love the version of this crochet pattern crocheted by A Creative Being:
3. Crochet Mandala in Embroidery Hoop
UPDATE: As of 2015, this blog no longer appears to be available.
The free crochet pattern for this mandala made inside of an embroidery hoop is available from Mitten & Makings.
4. African Flower Mandala
5. Mandala Rug
For something a little bit different you could try out the pattern for this Mandala Crochet Rug sold through Ravelry. The pattern is by Sol Maldonado. It’s a pattern designed to be made with T-shirt yarn.
6. Crochet Mandala Throw
Another twist on a basic Mandala is this mandala-inspired throw. It’s by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby and was featured in a Crochet World Magazine but is now available as a free download through Crochet World.
7. German Crochet Mandala Pattern
The free crochet pattern for this mandala is in German so you’ll have to use a translator online to follow it (unless you’re one of my German-speaking readers!)
