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.
Here’s this week’s roundup celebrating the best new crochet pattern releases, both free and for sale. You’ll also find updates in crochet health, news, fashion, art, books and more from this fabulous craft.
Crafter Jenny says: “These two mandalas, Wink’s designs, represent a small tribute from my crochet group here in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, UK. Several of my ladies have found their knitting and crochet has helped them through difficult times.
Last year I wrote a guide for How to Crochet Your Way to the Perfect Halloween, with some crochet pattern suggestions for Halloween decor, costumes and other accessories. It’s time for a fresh new roundup of Halloween crochet patterns!
These great crochet mandalas come from Linda in Indiana who says: “I am new to crochet, having just learned from a friend in March. I found Wink’s blog and book almost immediately. I am deeply saddened by what has happened. Wink is a great inspiration to everyone. I say is, not was, as her work will carry on forever with her patterns and blog.”
This blog is almost exclusively a crochet blog. I love other yarn crafts but it’s important to me that I feature crochet because it’s the one I really love and there aren’t a lot of sites out there that cater specifically to it. And even so, I’m so incredibly in love with Troy Emery’s yarn and pom faux taxidermy art sculptures that I just have to share them with you!
At the end of each month I share a collection of the various things I’ve written about here and in other places all around the web. If you missed something in September, find it here. If you loved something, share this post with others!
Today I wanted to provide an update on Mandalas for Marinke and remind you that there’s an upcoming deadline! All of your mandalas should be postmarked by October 15, 2015.
