I’ve never made a Mandala blanket but these don’t appear to be too intimidating. The Wheel of Fortune Blanket is really appealing. You’re really tempting me! 😉
I love that the afghans are all so different from one another! It makes it feel like you’re getting a lot for your money.
I love afghans and these mandala’s are stunning !!
Great looking patterns, thanks for the review!
Mandalas are on my to do list.
Thanks for the review! Beautiful collection of afghans!
I’ve always wanted to do a giant Mandala
I love this pattern! I have tried to make up something similar myself, but between thinking I knew what to do, then doing it and having it not lay flat, do ripping it out, over and over and over…. I kept it a baby afghan that almost laid flat! Thank you for this beautiful design!
This book looks wonderful!
I love afghans, square, round, any size. These look terrific, and are well described how to make them, but I have a problem to find out what name goes with which pattern.
I would love for you to review Lacy Wraps. Thank you!!!
Since I learned about mandalas, I’ve loved looking at them. There is something just so soothing about the symmetry.
Next book to review: I think Beautiful Bookmarks would be neat to get an opinion on.
Ever since I learned about what mandalas were, I’ve been in love with them. The patterns are always so appealing to the mind and soothing.
I would love to see a review of Crochet Baby Afghans by the Pound. I typically don’t use this yarn (16 ounce per skein) but some of these are really cute. Thanks for the chance to win the Mindful Mandala Afghans ebook.
I like the Rockwell and Star patterns i your review of Mindful Mandalas.
Thanks for the giveaway!
This pattern book looks amazing. Thanks for the giveaway.
I’d love to receive this book as I remember Merinke and her patterns to bring Mandelas to the pattern forefront. Her passing was too soon and I’ve love that this book honors her memory.
Colours, shapes and textures – Love this in the Rockwell mandala. Would enjoy a review of the Geometric Pillows and Afghans.
I forgot to put what book I would like you to review – that would be So Cute Scrubbies.
I love mandalas, so soothing to crochet to! Thanks for the giveaway!
I would be so honored and thrilled to be chosen to receive the e-book and would love to try any of the afghans but especially the one on the cover. I made over a dozen afghans last year. Thank you
I just love the color combination of afghan on the cover!
I love Mandalas! Would be an honor to have this ebook! 🙂
The Mandala Afghans are beautiful! I’d love to see the “Enchanted Forest Creatures” reviewed. They look like a lot of fun to do and with Spring and Summer around the corner my imagination roams!
Oops, I forgot to mention that I’d love to see you review the Enchanted Forest Creatures book (if you haven’t already)
Do i leave the comment here for entering the give away? if so, i would like to choose the next one to be for BAGS.
thanks and have a groovy day!
I think the mirror image scarves would be something that I would be interested in!
Wow, I love mandalas so now I MUST get the book! Thanks so much for the review, they’re always helpful.. :)..
Please review SCARVES my neck & ears Freeze in Winter ssooo I really need them !!!
I’d love to see a review of “Lacy Wraps”!
And again a great looking Afghan book. I love making Afghans and blankets. Busy with two at the moment. Never made a Mandala Afghan before. Would be a new challenge 🙂
