The petal flower mandala is an interesting example of a loosely stitched circular mandala, whose lacy texture is almost evocative of Native American dream catchers. The broad, circular frame with its inward petals and the radial central motif are a beautiful way of showing off stitch transitions and tensioning your crochets to have an airy structure maintain its overall integrity and shape. Coupled with a rainbow color gradient, this is a great and decorative project for young and old.
