Decorative Crochet Hoop Mandalas
Share this post with friends

Have you seen these amazing decorative pieces before? Fantastic Hoop Mandalas are intricate works that are based on metal or wooden rings. A circular pattern is worked from the center and often features floral motifs.

Hoop mandalas are a little bit different than regular doilies, and it’s because the ring gives them a beautiful, even shape. Thanks to that feature, they can be much more lacy, which makes them similar to dream catchers. You can add pom poms or fringe at the bottom, so it’s even more stunning! These crochet mandalas are works of art that look best when showcased on the wall.

From this post, you will learn about:

  • How to crochet a mandala.
  • Is it possible to afford mandala crochet patterns for beginners?
  • All levels crochet patterns for mandalas.

2. Mandala Miraflore

This design is quite different from your regular hoop mandala, so be sure to inspect it closely! As you can see in the photos, openwork assumes the shape of a star in the center, but the edges are solid! It’s usually the other way round – the points of attachment to the hook create big holes. It’s a true work of art, so grab your hook and make one!
