Stars & Stripes & Clusters Mini Mandalas


Tamara Kelly


Summer is flying by, and BBQ season is in full swing. Whether it’s the 4th of July, Labor Day, or  just a great day with friends, this is the pattern to have on hand! The Stars and Stripes and Clusters Mini Mandala makes great oversize coasters, lightweight trivets, handy cleanup cloths, and is super festive. Make a set in red, white and blue, or make them in colors to match your party theme – you can’t go wrong!

I made these 3 using one skein of red, white, and blue self striping cotton – perfect for the 4th! But you can make them in any colors you choose – solids, stripes, you name it! The pattern is super easy, and a great introduction to clusters if you haven’t made them before.
