Find your inner peace.

While a traditional doily is beautiful, there’s nothing quite so serene and peaceful as a mystical mandala doily. Indeed, the somewhat psychedelic and cosmic designs of mandalas really translate into crochet. Moreover, there are many great inspirations for individual mandalas, such as floral, feather and other sources. Thus, there is a world of examples you can draw upon to design your own. However, if you don’t want to, here are a couple to get your mandala doily muscles flexing.

Evocation Doily

Albeit it’s a bit fancy, this mystical mandala doily is a beautiful way to access the serenity of this theme. To summarize, this is a beautiful and traditional, floral mandala with gorgeous lotus leaves.
