Colorful Flower Mandalas!

I was really happy the way my multi-stitch striped blanket turned out! The different textures and bright colors seemed to brighten up my house, so I wanted to add just a little more color. While looking on Pinterest and searching crochet blogs for ideas, I found pictures of colorful mandalas and I decided to make one that was both colorful and looked like a flower.

Here is what I came up with:

These mandalas were done with basic crochet stitches, which make them quick to stitch up!  

This purple and yellow Mandala was crocheted using Drops Paris yarn. The colors used are #45 dusty orange, #8 dark Purple, #31 medium purple, #11 opal green, and #14 strong yellow.

The rose mandala was done using Drops Paris yarn #14 strong yellow, #11 opal green, #6 shocking pink, #33 medium pink, and Acaucania Ulmo Solid  #767

Even though it is hard to see in the photo, this mandala was done in an aqua and light blue, the light blue seems to blend in with the green. The yarns used for this blue mandala were Drops Paris yarn #14 strong yellow, #11 opal green, #2 light turquoise, #06 shocking pink, and Acaucania Ulmo Solid  #767

If you would like to make a few of these mandalas to brighten up your house or to give away as gifts you can access the pattern here

Have a great week! Happy Crocheting!
