This King Protea Mandala is another Dribs and Drabs design. The center was borrowed from my Front Post Frenzie Dishcloth (although it would be more accurate to say that I designed the Front Post Frenzie with this particular pattern in mind). The rest of the pattern was nabbed from Sophie’s Mandala (Medium).

And yes, in case you were wondering, you can use this pattern and continue on with the rest of Sophie’s Garden, in which case you would end up with a King’s Garden or a Protea Field or whatever.

Point being, you can insert the first 8 rounds of this pattern into Sophie’s Garden, should you wish to do so.

The King Protea is my favourite of all the proteas, which is just perfect, seeing as it is also the South African National Flower! This design is my nod to both the flower and my heritage.

The pattern is rated as Intermediate, but I have included links to the two photo tutorials that cover the rounds step-by-step.

Happy hooking!
