I will be honest with you, part 8 of Mandala Madness CAL is not exactly a walk in the park. There is a LOT happening this week and you really need to keep your wits about you. Last week we started with a floral part of the mandala and this week we are extending that flower with long stitches and ruffles. 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 8 I show you how to extend the flower we started last week with very long extended stitches.
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 and Wool Warehouse. Here a list of the colors I used for week 8.
|Round||Yarn||Color number||Color name|
|round 53||Sunkissed||15||noonday sun|
|round 54||Sunkissed||12||beach hut orange|
|round 55||Sunkissed||21||ultra violet|
|round 56||Sunkissed||15||noonday sun|
|round 57||Sunkissed||15||noonday sun|
I have not blocked my mandala, so she is very wobbly at the moment. I will get to blocking her soon. Nonetheless, she is lovely I think.
I hope to see you next week for part 9.
