Pattern notes: The pattern is written in U.K. terms with US terms for ease of conversion. My floral mandala is made of 7 rounds, Round 4 uses cluster stitches, this is where several stitches are grouped together (worked in the same space or stitch) by not completing the final part of the stitch and leaving all loops on the hook, before pulling the hook through all the loops of the incomplete stitches at the end, and forming the cluster stitch. It’s much the same as a decrease is done .I used Stylecraft classique cotton dk, but any double knitting preferably cotton yarn will do, and a 4mm hook. Additional stitches UK 3dtrcl = 3double treble cluster stitch only used at the beginning of Round 4. Skill level for this pattern intermediate.

My Flower Mandala pattern is a gift for you to make for birthdays, Mother’s Day or may be even Easter it looks beautiful with a vase of flowers in the centre or frame it in an embroidery hoop to make a dream catcher, I hope you have fun making it and gifting to your friends and family, Happy crocheting.
