I'm very happy to announce a new tutorial on this website - Macrame Lace Doily! I've been getting a lot of requests to make a tutorial for these Macrame mandalas, and finally I had some time to complete it. There are a lot of steps, but don't let it discourage you - the project might be lengthy and seems complicated, but it is actually pretty easy and uses only several common Macrame knots. The outcome will be a beautiful lace-like doily for your home, or you can use this pattern to make a round wall hanger - dreamcatcher style!
Buddhists say that mandalas, or circle designs like this one, transmit positive energies to the environment and to the people who view them. They are believed to purify a soul and heal a body. I don't know about that, but they certainly look good on a table or on a wall. Good luck with your project!
