Slowly but surely we are making progress on our Mandala; this week we are on part 7 of Mandala Madness CAL designed by Helen Shrimpton? Last week we made bobbles and a mesh to grow the star we already had, this week we start with a floral part of the mandala to slowly change the shape of our mandala. 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 7 I show you how to make the ruffled flowers and the bobble decorations.
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 7.
|Round||Yarn||Color number||Color name|
|round 49||Cotton 8||720||fuchsia|
|round 60||Sunkissed||13||cherry ice|
I hope to see you next week for part 8.
