After a successful start to the Mandala Madness CAL last week, it’s now time for part 2 of the design by Helen Shrimpton. You can find the original, written pattern with many translations on Helen’s blog.
All videos for Mandala Madness are available through my YouTube channel and on my blog grouped on this dedicated video page. In the video for week 2 I show you step-by-step how to make the star around the center flower of the mandala.
I use two Scheepjes yarns for my mandala; Scheepjes Sunkissed and Scheepjes Cotton 8 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 2.
|Round||Yarn||Color number||Color name|
|round 16||Sunkissed||14||spearmint green|
|round 17||Sunkissed||14||spearmint green|
|round 18||Sunkissed||14||spearmint green|
|round 19||Cotton 8||652||grey-blue|
|round 20||Cotton 8||652||grey-blue|
|round 21||Cotton 8||652||grey-blue|

I hope to see you next week for part 3 which brings us up to the sneak peak released a few months ago. After that the project is a mystery.
