Crochet Tutorial: How to Crochet a Mandala in an Embroidery Hoop

Crochet Tutorial: How to Crochet a Mandala in an Embroidery Hoop

Over the past couple of years I have collected embroidery hoops and used them for crochet mandala wall art. In today’s blog, I will demonstrate how to make this mandala hoop art for your very own! Start your day with coffee or chai, and crochet!

Lately, I’ve been fascinated making mandala art. I made a mandala for a table covering, and here is my Spring Sun Mandala Vest. It’s no surprise that I made more mandalas in hoops to decorate my wall.

Not all designs on my wall are mine. I used patterns like Sophie’s Universe and some designs from A Creative Being (Marinke Slump) to complete this arrangement. My wall is not complete and there is room to grow! I see more mandala art in our crochet future!

Turn your Mandala into a dreamcatcher!

Here is a color resource and information about Mandalas for guidance when creating yours.

“RED for strength, high energy and passion
PINK for love, intuition and the feminine
ORANGE for creativity, transformation, self-awareness and intuition
YELLOW for learning, wisdom, laughter and happiness
GREEN for physical healing, psychic ability, love of nature and caring
BLUE for emotional healding, inner peace and meditation
PURPLE for all things spiritual
WHITE for spiritual focus
BLACK for mystery, deep thinking and individuality”
