I absolutely love the bright neon pink of this crochet mandala, softened just slightly by the dark center and white rounds. I also really love the border, where each edging piece overlaps with the ones next to it.
Ruby Jane’s Lane contributed six beautiful crochet mandalas, each one more special than the next. I could say lots about why I like them but I’ll just let their photos speak for themselves.
This is Wink’s standard 12 round crochet mandala pattern. I love the progression of the colors, with a different color on each round, coming together at the end with the rainbow variegated yarn for the border.
The awareness might be relatively new but crocheting to heal isn’t new at all and I’m always excited when I see references to it in articles from the past. For example, I learned about crocheter Merril Hawkins from a 1974 article in the Ocala Star-Banner.
These two crochet mandalas came together with special love from the maker for the I Love Holland pattern by Wink.
Crafter Jodie writes: “My contribution is a variation on Wink’s “I Love Holland” crochet mandala pattern, which she made to celebrate the coronation of King Willem Alexander of The Netherlands.
I love all of the crochet mandalas that come in for this project. Sometimes I think I like the thread mandalas best. Sometimes I like the floral ones. But today looking at this one I think maybe I like the rainbow crochet mandalas best. This one is worked with rainbow colors, from outside to inside.
