Video tutorial Mandala Madness week 9

Did you survive week 8 of Mandala Madness? You will be happy to know that week 9 is a bit of well deserved R&R after all that hard work. But just for a little while because week 10 is a hard one again. But lets not worry about that just yet. 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 9

All videos for Mandala Madness are available through my YouTube channel. In the video for week 9 I show you how to work a few background rounds.

  1. Esther, I don’t know what I’d do without your videos on the “tricky” sections of these CALs, and I must ask–do you just KNOW how to do all these stitches and techniques, or do you have to talk with the pattern designers to learn their techniques before you create your videos? I’m so glad I found your site because, although I’ve been crocheting for more than 40 years, I learn something new from you with every post. Thank you SO much for teaching this old dog so many new tricks! 🙂 Judy


    1. Hi Judy,
      No, I work from the written pattern only. But also I have had to explain stitches to you in the video that I am doing for the first time. But that is a good thing because then I know what the hard bits are because I am also doing it for the first time. Sometimes I am only half a step ahead of you 😀
      I am really happy that I am able to help you make beautiful things of your own.
      Enjoy your journey. ❤
