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.
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 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.
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.
|Round||Yarn||Color number||Color name|
|round 41||Sunkissed||17||summer rain|
|round 42||Sunkissed||17||summer rain|
