There are so many uses for crochet circles! This layered flower mandala is nice and thick because of the layers, so it makes a fabulous trivet. You can also use it as a decorative doily, part of a blanket, or half of a circular pillow.
Sew it onto a slightly larger embroidery hoop, and it makes a great wall hanging too! To do this, use a long piece of coordinating yarn or thread and whipstitch around both the hoop and the mandala. Make evenly spaced stitches all the way around, making sure the mandala stays centered. Here’s a great tutorial showing the same technique, with a different mandala.
Stitch Markers Matter
There are a lot of stitch markers in this pattern, and it’s important not to skip them. Stitches and spaces that are easy to find when you make them sometimes get much harder to find when you have 2 layers to work with.
I’ve mainly used stitch markers to mark stitches and spaces that I had a hard time finding on my first time through the design.
In addition to the normal front and back loops, half double crochet stitches have an extra, third loop. Working into this loop is a great way to add ridges and texture.
The video works through the entire layered flower mandala, round by round. This mandala is part of the larger, Crochet Mandala Bag pattern.
