Let’s crochet this Rainbow Chakra Mandala, a magical shape where your attention automatically gets drawn to the middle point of the circle. Such a beautiful project to crochet one yourself! 

This project is aimed to intermediate crocheters, but I think that the upper beginners can manage it to crochet. The thing is that a upper beginner should be familiar with some special stitches: front and back post stitches and clusters.

The colours in this mandala correspond to The Seven Chakra’s: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple. I used several tints of every main colour, feel free to give your Mandala your own colourway.

The project contains:

  • Large format chart/diagram.
  • Full written instructions in English with US terminology.
  • Round by round photo tutorial.

Materials
Yarn: Scheepjes Sweet Treat in seven colours in two shades of every colour
Ring: 40 cm in diameter
Scissors, tapestry needle to weave in ends.
You can use any similar yarn and suitable hook.

The size of the finished Mandala depends on the yarn and hook you use. My Chakra Mandala made of cotton thread is approx. ⌀ 38 cm blocked and ⌀ 40 cm stretched in the hoop. I made also one with Scheepjes Catona (125 m 50 grams) 2,5 mm hook. The Mandala with 18 rounds of this pattern suits also 40 cm hoop.

Pattern notes:

  • Please make yourself familiar with front and back post stitches before you start.
  • I recommend learning how to make standing stitches and invisible joins.
