Crochet Wheel to Love mandala

Finally, I managed to publish this crochet mandala pattern. The project I wanted to finish a while ago. It’s a rainbow mandala which look like a delightful ferris wheel. And I named it the “Wheel to Love” mandala.

5mm crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn: 100 % acrylic ( 7 colors of rainbow )
Yarn needle

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

You can use any hook size for this crochet Wheel To Love mandala pattern, just choose a yarn type that matches.

The sample mandala is approximately 10 inches in diameter.

Special stitches used:

2dc-V stitch: ( 2dc, ch2, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.
