Video tutorial Mandala Madness week 1

It has been a wait, but after announcing that I would be making video tutorials for the Mandala Madness CAL designed by Helen Shrimpton we are ready to start. From now till the summer holiday I will be releasing a video each week, and today we start with week 1.

All videos for Mandala Madness will be available through my YouTube channel, but you can also follow them right here on my blog where all videos are grouped on this dedicated video page. In the video for week 1 I show you step-by-step how to make the center flower of the mandala.

I use two yarns for my mandala, both by Scheepjes. I used Scheepjes Sunkissed and Scheepjes Cotton 8, bot good quality sport weight cotton yarns and work both yarns with a 3mm (D-3) hook. There are yarn packs available for this CAL in Scheepjes Color CrafterScheepjes Stone Washed XL and Scheepjes Merino Soft. Here a list of the colors I used for week 1.

    • Hi Shirley, happy you want to make you own mandala and that you like the videos. I am almost done with my mandala. This week I will write a post on how much yarn you need. I am not completely finished with my mandala yet so I cannot give you the full info at the moment. Visit my blog on thursday or friday and it should be ready then 🙂
