The Circle of Love Afghan tells a love story in the stitches. Moments of clarity, bursts of brightness, a deep ombre of feeling, and an oversized ruffle to share. And it always comes around again, if you stick with it. And it’s just in time for Valentine’s Day!
The pattern for the Shocking Mandala Rug was published during the summer of 2013 on the Stitch & Unwind blog. And while the finished rug has had a home in our playroom for a while, now I can give it the pattern a home here on Moogly! I hope you enjoy this great free crochet rug pattern!
Mandalas are hot right now – big, small, or used as the basis for a whole pattern, these circular crochet patterns are fun to make! No longer used only as a religious symbol, they can still be meditative to make and admire. And in yarn they can be useful too – as potholders, trivets, wall and table decor, or as part of a bag, blanket, rug, or even a bag! So here are 10 free mandala crochet patterns – for both mandalas and projects that incorporate them! (Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links.)
