A while back I posted a crochet inspired mandala, and decided yesterday it was time for another one. I love crocheting doilies. I never have any place to put them when they are done so they usually wind up given to a friend. Building a doily in the round is a lot like making a mandala, and generally I work without a pattern, just playing with the thread to make simple designs. I'm also very bad at keeping notes while working on them, so generally don't share the patterns. I think I'll try to crochet one based off this mandala though, with notes!
