Video tutorial Mandala Madness week 8

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.


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 8

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.

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 CrafterScheepjes Stone Washed XL and Scheepjes Merino Soft, available from 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.

With love,

  1. Hallo Ester, Ik zou graag de Mandala Madness willen haken met die prachtige kleuren die jij gebruikt, mijn vraag is mag ik weten hoeveel garen jij hiervoor gebruikt.
    Ik zelf ben woonachtig in Spanje en er hier geen Scheepjes wol te verkrijgen is wil ik graag alles ineens bestellen in Nederland vandaar mijn vraag,
    Hoor graag van je.
    Groetjes Geerte Rostohar-Koele


    1. Hoi Geerte,
      Ik begrijp je vraag, maar ik kan hem helaas nog niet beantwoorden. Ik ben namelijk nog niet klaar met mijn mandala en heb daarom ook nog geen idee van hoeveel garen ik uiteindelijk nodig ga hebben. Ik loop maar een klein beetje voor op de release van de patronen.
      Zodra ik alle info heb zal ik het zeker posten, er zijn namelijk meer mensen die het willen weten.
