Video Tutorial Mandala Madness week 4

Are you all excited for part 4 of Mandala Madness CAL? This is the first surprise part of the CAL designed by Helen Shrimpton. You can find the original, written pattern with many translations on Helen’s blog. This week we are making lots of popcorns to decorate our star.


Yarn & yarn packs

There are/were various yarn packs available for the crochet along.

These yarn packs are available from Wool Warehouse as well as selected Scheepjes Stockists.

Video Part 4

All videos for Mandala Madness are available through my YouTube channel. In the video for week 4 I show you how to increase the star we made in part 3 and how to decorate it with popcorn stitches. You will notice that I use a lot of color this week. I will continue to do so as the CAL progresses; I love color and I use it abundantly!

My Mandala Madness

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, all available from Wool Warehouse. Here a list of the colors I used for week 4.

Round   Yarn  Color number  Color name
round 30 Sunkissed 14 spearmint green
round 31 Cotton 8 720 fuchsia
round 32 Sunkissed  14 spearmint green
round 33 Sunkissed  14 spearmint green
round 34 Sunkissed  04 poolside

I hope to see you next week for part 5.

With love,

  1. I love this! I just spent more time thank I should have at once watching part 1 and part 2 on YouTube and I want to give this a go as soon as I am able. Thanks for the videos!


  2. Your color choices are wonderful and I love the ombre effect of the Sunkissed yarn. I hope you are able to post when you are done the approximate amount of yarn you used. I would like to purchase the same yarn but not sure how much to purchase nor do I think you are done introducing new colors. Can’t wait to see your progress week to week.


  3. Thank you so much for these great videos, without these I had never managed to crochet this Mandala ❤ now i am learning something new every day 🙂
