Today’s crochet mandala for the Mandalas for Marinke project is a special contribution from Stephanie Davies, a friend of Wink’s who was deeply affected by her loss.
“I found I was compelled to participate in this Mandalas For Marinke project. I immediately had to choose one of her beautiful mandalas to work on and send along. I have also created my own version of her fat bottom bag, and I use it as a yarn bag for smaller projects.”
This beautiful, soft, floral crochet mandala comes from 80-year-old Jeanette Dunham who has lived in Bloomington, MN for the past 50 years.
“I was touched and very saddened to hear about Wink’s passing, even though I had not been to her site before. It was very touching to see her beautiful face, and to think about how hard it must be for her family.”
This smashing crochet mandala is worked in more than half a dozen colors and reminds me of the most glorious flowers in the world. It comes from Andrea, who you’ll find on both Ravelry and Instagram under the name @anfloclay.

This beautiful crochet mandala was made by Divina Rocco for Wink using color inspiration from “My Many Colored Days” by Dr. Seuss.
