One of the items in my crochet magazine that I can never resist is a mandala pattern from wink
who manages to create a succession of magic patterns all made from going round in circles in different ways
these mandalas really do demonstrate the variety than can be achieved through creating a series of loops with wool and a crochet hook
She uses a wonderful array of colour for hers and although I too love colour I made my 1st with a set of muted shades and decided to keep going withe the same set so that they looked more like a coherent set on the wall. Because, although I find the patterns addictive I am left with the question of ‘what to do with them’ and my answer has been to pin them to the wall in my craft room. The lime green of the wall is a good backdrop for my chosen shades – better than I’ve I’d gone for bright colours.
