Mandala-inspired patterns are always a favorite, and there are many to choose from. However, this cardigan is one of the more imaginative adaptation of the basic mandala wheel motif. The Whirl Mandala Cardigan Pattern by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk incorporated into The Starburst Mandala Circular Vest by Dorianna Rivelli is a particularly good combination. Coupled with a color gradient with smooth transitions, this pattern will produce a fancy garment that will serve you well on many different occasions. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
