What Is a Mandala?
Crochet mandalas are popular items to make, can be highly personalized and make great decorating pieces for your home! Mandala is a Sanskrit word for circle, and it represents the universe in Hinduism and Buddhism.
The spirituality of the circle has expanded to other cultures and religions to represent the circle of life, the sun, the earth and the concept of infinity, of something without end.
A crochet mandala is a crochet version of this concept, a circular work that often features multiple bright colors and segmenting lines, but it can also be crocheted in a solid color with textured stitches to add that effect.
A mandala is crocheted outwards from a single point, so as you work you are creating an ever-expanding circle, like a growing ripple in a still pond.
