Summer hearts mandala pattern & CAL! - a creative being. Yes, you read that correctly: today I’m releasing a new mandala pattern, AND there will be a CAL!

summer hearts mandala pattern & CAL! - a creative being

:D The pattern is my Summer Hearts Mandala, which I designed for Simply Crochet magazine last year. The pattern has 11 pages and features large, clear photos with step-by-step instructions. As usual it has a Cheat Sheet at the back (for quick reading, and to print out instead of the entire pattern). It works up great with a 4mm hook and Drops Paris cotton yarn, but you could easily substitute those for your favourite yarn & hook combination!

You can get the summer hearts mandala crochet pattern from the usual suspects: my Ravelry shop, my Etsy shop, or my Craftsy shop. And if you’d like to make the summer hearts mandala as part of a CAL, head on over to Lazy Daisy Jones and/or Chrissie Crafts; they are hosting a Mandala CAL on their blogs!
