Amazing texture and in your choice of colors--this Mandala crochet pattern contains instructions that allow you to make a unique mandala --in multiple colors or even in all one color--using small bits of yarn. This is a great stash-buster! It also contains instructions to make your mandala into a stool cover. It could be transformed into a pillow cover, trivet or wall hanging, too. Just attach it to an embroidery hoop, and hang it on your wall! Work it up in colors to match your own style and decor! This crochet pattern has been thoroughly tested and is simple to follow with both detailed written instructions, a special stitches section, notes and suggestions, yarns used to make the pictured mandala, and a separate photo-tutorial section to help you through any tricky spots. Contains 21 pages and over 60 pictures to help even an ambitious beginner make your own beautiful and unique mandala!
