Welcome to the Lotus Dream Catcher! This pattern was inspired by my home and my love for mandalas. I grew up with dream catchers all around my home and I love that with crochet you can create one for your home. The Lotus Dream Catcher has a bohemian feel to it and you can choose colors that match your decor or use as many colors as you would like in it.  

Thank you to WeCrochet for sending me the Super Bulky Yarn, Tuff Puff in Snickerdoodle. The Lotus Dream Catcher is worked up in the round with increases in the chains. There’s an option for a 19-inch or 10-inch version. I found my wire wreaths on Amazon and Walmart and they were affordable. I also used my Furls Odyssey Hook for this one skein project that I completed in less than a few hours and I can’t wait to see your version of the Lotus Dream Catcher!

Notes:
