Serenity Mandala Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl
A quick and thoughtful, handmade gift that brings joy and peace all year long, the Serenity Mandala Wall Hanging Crochet project is the perfect gift! Make one for yourself, and anyone on your list!
Follow along the chart or the line by line instructions to whip up this project in no time. The chart includes several more rounds than are shown on the finished project, to be sure your mandala will fit whatever size ring you may find.
Use this mandala motif for afghans, shawls, or a wrap, too! I would love to wrap myself in this gorgeous color work.
Be So Serene Sampler Kit has 8 hand dyed colors and is enough yarn to make the mandala motif and the fringe for one project.
