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.
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 13 I show you how to make the shells and the decorative stitches on the shells.
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 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.
