This colorful mandala reminds me of Wild Berry Flowers that I used to have in my garden. The pattern was tested on two sizes of yarn, chunky Stone Washed XL and the regular one. 

INFORMATION

Wild Berry Flower Mandala can be made in 2 sizes. One starting with 10 dc and the second one starting with 12. The difference will be the number of petals. In this particular tutorial, I will make the second one. If you would like to crochet the first version, I will give the correct number of stitches at the end of this tutorial.
