The Mini Magic Mandala Square is a great little 6" square when worked in Worsted/Aran weight yarn. It's also the basis of the Magic Rainbow Baby Blanket! Here's how it's made.

It's all pretty straight forward - the "tricks" are the spike stitches and crocheting between the posts. At least, that's what I get the most questions about.
This pattern also shares it's first few rows with the Magic Spike Mandala Square, which is a 12" block - particularly that tricksy Round 3! So if you can make the mini 6" square, you should be able to make the 12" version no problem. At any rate, it's easier than pronouncing "mandala!"
