Today’s theme is Mandala Madness, which is one of the most beloved patterns of all time, designed by ultra-talented Helen Shrimpton of Crystals and Crochet.

This amazing circular blanket is so full of details, that it was published as a CAL, so that everybody could work together and share their experiences during the process. It took place in 2016, but since then crocheters from all around the world recreated this free crochet pattern over 3000 times!

Sometimes there are days like today, in which I want to share with you clever ideas, but don’t have much time to spend writing a big post. That’s why I came up with Quick Roundup series, in which I will be sharing 5-10 best ideas for crochet techniques, projects and patterns 🙂

Mandala Madness – The Most Beautiful Ideas

Mandala Madness by Wendiayu

I’m a sucker for fantastic color palettes, so it’s no surprise that this version by Wendi caught my eye immediately! Subtle color changes between aqua-blue center, delicate violets and lilacs, which finally become peachy pinks – it’s like poetry. Take a look below and see for yourself!

Let’s talk ombre yarns, because they are the gifts sent from heaven. When I see a project like the one in the photos below, I am in awe. It’s like these colorways were invented, so that JoanneMarie could have made this blanket, right? Notice subtle color flow and intricate pattern go hand in hand. Stunning!

Scarlett’s Mandala Madness by RitaSometymes

When a design consists of so many rows, details and parts, it’s easy to get confused sometimes. Meticulous color planning is something you absolutely need to do before you start your project, because there will be no place for last-minute change of mind. Take a look below and admire this fantastic scarlet version by Rita.

Trinity’s Mandala Madness by Creationsbydana

Looking for something more vibrant and playful? This amazing version by Dana reminds me of stain glass, because it uses black with bright colors. Clever color placement makes this amazing project looks like it’s three-dimensional, and divides the pattern into ‘tiers’. In the photo below you can see how cool it looks – almost like a flower floating in the pond!

Mandala Madness by CrochetOff

I can feel strong boho vibes with this one, and I know exactly why! Abundance of colors is something you either love or hate, but one thing is certain – it won’t go unnoticed. If you like this kind of projects, great, because you can use up leftover yarn ends to make it. See this amazing version in the pictures below.
