Video tutorial Mandala Madness week 6

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.


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 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 Wool Warehouse. 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
round 43 Cotton 8  669 olive
round 44 Cotton 8  669 olive
round 45 Cotton 8  669 olive

I hope to see you next week for part 7.

With love,
