You will love to make this cool crochet sahasrara shawl pattern! Its unique design is inspired by the lotus mandala as seen in the crown chakra.
When I first thought about designing this shawl, a picture of a lotus with different colored layers formed in my mind. After some research, I found a Lotus Mandala picture. I knew instantly that I had to make something like that into this shawl.
After much experimentation, a lot of frogging and many a failed attempts, I finally figured out how to make it into an almost semi-circle shawl.
I wanted this shawl to have a unique name. My search for a perfect name begun again. Somewhere from my subconscious mind , the word “thousand-petaled lotus” popped up. I found out that it is called Sahasrara. I have always been drawn to Yoga. So, Sahasrara is such an apt name for this shawl.
The Sahasrara is described as a lotus flower with 1,000 petals of different colors. So if you use a different color for each of the parts mentioned in the pattern, the shawl will look awesome. But it is totally optional.
Whether you use 1 color, a variegated yarn or more than one color for this shawl, it is definitely going to make you stand out in the crowd. From the deepest recesses of my mind to Yoga, I present to you, Sahasrara, the thousand-petaled lotus. Enjoy this Buddha shawl!
