Mandalas


This week I’ve been working on mandalas.   I’m still studying colors.  I even bought a color wheel from AC Moore.  It was for painters but I found it helps with yarn too.
 
I found this fabulous website called ,A Creative Being, and she crochets a mandala a week.   It’s a fantastic study in color.  There’s a free pattern on the site for her basic  mandala.  I also bought her pattern for the  “I love Holland crochet Mandala.”  This pattern can be found on Ravelry.

 


This is one of the ones I made.  It’s so simple to do but so pretty.  I made another one in red, white and blue.  And I started a third one with red and yellow tulips  I made them in Sugar n Cream 100% cotton yarn.  I think they make pretty hot pads.  Or maybe placemats.

  3. I struggle with colours sometimes too and I've been doing colouring books for years, most of which are mandala designs. They've been very helpful with my colour block.

  4. Kyoti,

    Absolutely lovely! I started one of Wink's mandalas but haven't gotten back to it because I'm busy making Christmas presents. That is so beautiful. Nice job!
