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 am endlessly surprised by the stunning beauty and creative innovation that courses through my Instagram stream each week, including those photos that people tag with #crochetsavedmylife or #crochetconcupiscence. You’ll find many of those photos here in this week’s roundup but be sure to check the tags to see them all!
Maya of The Little Treasures sent me this beautiful crochet mandala that she made. But more than that, she also shares the free crochet mandala pattern with all of us on her blog. It is called Joy of Life.
In this post you’ll find links to the best new crochet patterns from all around the web this week. You’ll also find new crochet art, tutorials, fashion, designer interviews and more.
This crochet mandala is made using Wink’s standard twelve round crochet mandala free pattern. I love that it begins and ends with sunny yellow. And I also like that there are two rounds of each color in a row, making it unique from many of the other versions out there that change colors each row.
As I mentioned previously, I’m happy to be one of the judges for this 3rd quarter of The Crochet Awards, formerly known as The Flamies. The judges’ nominations are all in now for the categories, which are all about crochet for the home. Take a look at what we chose, then it’s your turn to submit fan nominations and come September everyone can vote.
First of all, thank you to every single person who has contributed already to the Mandalas for Marinke collaborative crochet art project, designed to raise awareness about depression and mental health issues while celebrating the creative work of Wink who succumbed to suicide earlier this summer.

It is similar to the crochet popcorn and cluster stitches but seems to be the more common of the three in recently released crochet patterns. If you’re seeking to add interesting elements to your work, check out these thirteen crochet bobble stitch patterns.
