Mandala is the Sanskrit word for endless circle. Mandala's beauty comes from striking combinations of color and patterns and visual symmetry. They are the perfect project for beginner to experienced knitters because they make up quickly and take only a small space to crochet. A wonderful traveling project because of size. and portability, Like Doilies they are small, creative and beautiful, unlike doilies they use striking combinations of color, stitches and sizes. Terrific gift projects for your friends homes.
