My Mandala Madness
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 Crafter, Scheepjes Stone Washed XL and Scheepjes Merino Soft. Here a list of the colors I used for week 1.
