This week we are have arrived at part 13 of Mandala Madness designed by Helen Shrimpton and we are making waves, but in a good way. There are two large and one small shell this week and with the decorative edges it looks like waves are dancing around my mandala.

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 13.
|Round||Yarn||Color number||Color name|
|round 83||Sunkissed||13||cherry ice|
|round 84||Sunkissed||13||cherry ice|
|round 85||Sunkissed||10||lavender ice|
|round 86||Sunkissed||10||lavender ice|
|round 87||Cotton 8||669||olive|
My mandala is really big, I am having to stand on a chair to get all of it into frame for a photograph. And this week I got round to blocking her, so she is nice an flat again.
I hope to see you next week for part 14.

🙂 the Aunt who taught me to crochet approx 52 years ago was called Esther. I really like the colours you use in your mandala madness. I haven’t managed to even started mine yet as I am busy finishing another project See Ravelry (RoyG), but I was wondering if Scheepjes would consider making up a pack of the colours you use? I also prefer cotton as wool tends to irritate my skin. I live in far off northern Thailand and the brighter colours are more suited to our part of the world, but there is no decent yarn shop in my location. I either use fairy good local cotton yarn for one colour projects, but have to get as best I can the rest usually PIma cotton from Australia.
Thanks for the very helpful videos.

Thank you for your kind words. I don’t think that there will be yarn packs because the CAL is already over. I will put a list with all my colors and yarn amounts when i am finished on my blog. Then you can order it if you want to.
