What Kind of Yarn Should You Use for a Mandala Pattern?

The great thing about a mandala pattern, that most of them can be made with any type of yarn and are perfect as a stash buster pattern. 
But if you want to use your mandala as a home decor, it is recommended to use cotton yarn, because it easier to wash and safer when using as coasters or pot holders.

Is mandala a beginner friendly pattern?

It really is depending on the patterns itself. You can find a lot of beginner to easy mandala patterns, and there’s a few that are more suitable for intermediate.
Although, because a lot of the mandala patterns are using repetition of different stitches, they are a perfect project to learn and master new stitches!
