This week we are on to part 3 of Mandala Madness CAL, designed by Helen Shrimpton. You can find the original, written pattern with many translations on Helen’s blog. Part 3 is the last part that was part of the sneak peak, so after today the rest of the CAL is a mystery. I have been fortunate enough to see the end result (after all, I need to keep ahead of you all to make the videos), and I can tell you, you are going to love it!
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 3 I show to use two colors at the same time. If you have never done this before, don’t stress, it’s not as hard as it looks. Just keep with me and I’m sure you’ll be just fine 🙂
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, available from Deramores, Wool Warehouse and Paradise Fibers. Here a list of the colors I used for week 3.
|Round||Yarn||Color number||Color name|
|round 25||Sunkissed||05 & 15||seaside & sun|
|round 26||Sunkissed||05 & 15||seaside & sun|
|round 29||Sunkissed||21||ultra violet|
I hope to see you next week for part 4 when the first surprise part of the CAL begins.
