PART 3 of STAR LOVER MANDALAS COLLECTION


Last week, I shared with you Part 2 of Star Lover Mandala Collection which included two (2) designs of the 7-point star mandala.

As promised, this week I have two (2) designs of the 6-point star mandala.


STAR LOVER 5 MANDALA


This week we have the 6-point star (a hexagram) it is a simple geometric shape consisting of the intersection of two equilateral triangles. 



This ancient symbol appears in many religions and in Hindu, Buddhist and Jain art, symbolizing concepts such as creation, balance, and the cosmos.

My Star Designs

Here are my original and unique Star Lover 5 Mandala designs including both 6-point stars, the first pattern is called Star Lover 5 Mandala and the second 6-point star is called Star Lover 5 Mandala V2 (version 2).

Yarn Used

I am using Wendy Supreme Luxury Cotton 4ply a 100% mercerised cotton yarn which I love to crochet with, and once again I am using just one colour for each mandala design, however, you can always crochet the star mandala and change colour as many times as you like.

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. 
Try to make sense of what you see
and wonder about what makes the Universe exist. 
Be curious. 
And however difficult life may seem, 
there is always something you can do and succeed at. 
It matters that you don't just give up." 
Stephen Hawking



That's all from me for now, my friends,
