Here is a beautiful octagonal mandala pattern done in a beautiful lacy crochet work. Unlike a lot of mandala patterns that just scream in colors and shapes, the delicate appearance of this mandala is further subtly enhanced by its toned down and relaxing palette of blues and grays It’s a beautiful piece that will be a joy to make and behold, and will definitely complement the room you choose to decorate with it. It’s a large piece, some 27″ across, and will pose a fun challenge for any crocheter. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
