Mandala is a Sanskrit word for circle, and it represents the universe in Hinduism and Buddhism. A crochet mandala can be either a simplistic design with only one color and textured stitches or a complex mix of textures and colors. A circle is a perfect shape for a quick and easy bag, adapting the size as you go.
This Pattern combines both textured stitches and colored lines with subtle accents of glassy beaded yarn to create a kind of boho style. The combination of cotton and linen yarns are ideal for bags, since both fibers lack elasticity
Maya Mandala Bag and Maya Espadrilles patterns are available in I Like Crochet Magazine, June 2021 issue, together with a bunch of other interesting summer crochet ideas.
