Mandalas are popping up everywhere lately, from adult coloring pages to home decor — but mandalas are not new to crocheters! Mandala crochet patterns are great projects no matter what your crochet skill level is. They're wonderful introductions to crocheting in the round and for trying out new stitches, and more experienced crocheters can use mandalas to experiment with different color palettes and stitch combinations.
