Most of the free crochet pattern mandalas are hot pads to give you a chance to learn the mandalas. We have one large afghan in a free pattern that has a video tutorial that crocheters seem to really love.
I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
