I just love making these African Flower Mandalas. Probably because "anything goes" with the colors.
In the winter months I like to whip up a couple of quick and colorful projects just so I can say I finished something! Usually this time of year I am working on afghans, etc. Of course this year I will be making my first cardigan sweater. Anyway...here they are for your colorful enjoyment!
Of course the top three are the mandalas. They are so big and double sided and that makes them my go-to potholders/hot pads. Someday I will have my kitchen wall full of colorful potholders! Oh, here is the link to the pattern, it is from Crochet with Raymond on Ravelry.
