Orange Blossom Mandala ⋆ Tally's Crafts
Crochet Patterns

Orange Blossom Mandala

There is something magical when it comes to mandalas. The combination of colours and texture is so pleasant and relaxing. I love making them, but I also find them so addictive. Once you start making one, there seems to be no end to it. It is always tempting to add one more round to make it look even better, and the only thing that limits you is the amount of yarn that you have purchased for your project. This particular one was so much fun to make. It can be a table decoration or used to create a pretty pillow.
