A new week and we are already on part 6 of Mandala Madness CAL designed by Helen Shrimpton? Last week was a rising sun, this week we are tuning the sun into a mountain. We now have a star-shaped mandala again, but the star is at a different position relative to the star we made in week 2. You can find the original, written pattern with many translations on Helen’s blog.

Video Part 6
All videos for Mandala Madness are available through my YouTube channel. In the video for week 6 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 Deramores, Wool Warehouse and Paradise Fibers. Here a list of the colors I used for week 5.
