Wink van mandala deken haak patroon vrij van A Spoonful van garen. This unique crochet pattern was inspired by Wink (who was the designer’s sister-in-law) who used her crochet mandalas in different color palettes, turned into squares, to create this amazingly colorful and special crochet afghan.
Rose mandala kleedje gratis haak patroon van BellaCrochet; Zie 40+ meer haak mandala patronen hier. Mandalas are always designed to be really colorful, although theoretically you could make them in neutral or single colors instead. In dit voorbeeld, you could actually even use more colors; each purple row could be a different color for example, but I think it strikes the perfect balance of color.
Bloem Gehaakte oma-vierkanten gratis haak patroon Stitch Craft maken. This is exactly the kind of crochet pattern that I think of when I think of really colorful crochet.

Drie driehoeken haak muur opknoping gratis patroon door de lui Hobbyhopper. The addition of beads brings even more color to an already colorful design.
