When i designed my free crochet mandala pattern, Mandy’s Mandala, i never expected so many clever crocheters to use my pattern and share their gorgeous images with me on Instagram. I would like to share some of my favourites from the #mandysmandala hashtag. It’s been so much fun to see my pattern made in so many colourways. If you decide to make one, i’d love to see you colour combination, so don’t forget to tag #mandysmandala.
