Video Tutorial Mandala Madness week 5

Are you managing to keep up with the pace of Mandala Madness CAL designed by Helen Shrimpton? Last week we made a lot popcorns and this week we are making a sun rising above the popcorn horizon, or at least that’s what this part of the CAL reminds me of. You can find the original, written pattern with many translations on Helen’s blog.


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 5

All videos for Mandala Madness are available through my YouTube channel. In the video for week 5 I show you how to make the ‘rising sun’. Also this week I use a lot of color and I will continue to do so as the CAL progresses.

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, available from Wool Warehouse. Here a list of the colors I used for week 5.

Round   Yarn  Color number  Color name
round 35 Sunkissed 19 candy floss
round 36 Sunkissed 19 candy floss
round 37 Cotton 8  508 soft yellow
round 38 Cotton 8  508 soft yellow
round 39 Cotton 8  716 orange
round 40 Cotton 8  661 purple

I hope to see you next week for part 6.

With love,
