Energy Mandala is a great quick project that gives the maker a wonderful opportunity to play with colour and a chance to practice front and back post stitches. The mandala can be made in any yarn and hook and can be transformed into brooches, wall decorations, coasters......anything you like.
The mandala was first published in a booklet with Crochet Now magazine along with other beautiful designs to support an amazing cause called the Big Mandala Swap. The pattern rights have now returned to me and I would like to use the mandala for another very important cause to me…….20th of February marked 13 years since my wonderful mum, Lucy, has passed away. I would like to raise money for the amazing special care unit in St.Thomas Hospital in London, the doctors and nurses there took such a good care of my mum in her final hours, I’ll forever be grateful to them. I would like to donate the full amount from every mandala pattern sold to the hospital. Thank you in advance for your support and helping me raise the money.

Rowan cotton glace – light DK, 50g, 115m/126yrd
I have used above yarn, but any sport, 4ply, 5ply or light DK mercerised cotton will be fine to use for these mandalas, taking into account that different fibres result in different finished effect. I have used roughly 20 g of each colour.
