Tamara used the Winter Mandala crochet pattern, which was the first mandala pattern of Wink’s that she ever saw.
This is Jamie’s first-ever crocheted mandala. She shared:
“It is a 12-round Wink mandala in Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, both solid and variegated, made in hopes that it brings comfort to Wink’s community, helps spread the word about mental health issues, and serves as a reminder of love, art, light and life. I am grateful for Wink’s art and generous spirit and for this memorial to her.”
This crochet mandala comes to us from Tammy S. Asad, an American who has been living in Kuwait for the past twenty years. She shared: “My cousin taught me to crochet when I was about 20 but my work and ability to read patterns only took off when I started my blog (T’s Daily Treasures) six years ago. Wink had a knack for color and natural creativity that was so inspiring. I found her blog when looking for a mandala pattern and was immediately drawn to her colorful projects.
Crafter Lisette shared: “I saw Wink’s peacock butterfly mandala and fell in love with it, but I had nothing to do with it one completed, so I chose at the time not to make it. When I heard the sad news and learned about this project, I knew it was time to make it.”
This crochet mandala was made using the Summer Hearts Mandala crochet pattern by Wink. Terrific pattern and it looks great with these color choices.
I was so excited to open this package and discover not only a terrific mandala but three additional mandala pillows. These will be great cushions for the section of the Mandalas for Marinke art show where I hope to be able to provide a sitting space for people who wish to craft at the event.
These two crochet mandalas were contributed anonymously. They are each made using Wink’s standard crochet mandala pattern. I love how they seem to match each other so well even though they don’t use a lot of the same colors. The light green, white, light pink and blue that is in each of them is just enough to tie them together so that they reference one another.
