When I placed a photo of my finished mandala on my Facebook-page I didn’t expect to receive so many likes. I was really flattered and happy with all the nice and friendly comments I got. Crocheters and knitters are nice people! Thank you, all, so very,very much.
This mandala was my own design, as I just made it up while working on it. Some ladies asked for the pattern and I am happy to share it. There is just one minor detail …. I forgot to write it down. I did write down the first few rows, but then I stopped doing that as I could not imagine anyone would be interested. How wrong I was (me, flattered again). As promised on FB I’ll write down the tutorial, well, I write down what I can remember …. Now, today is going to be a very hot day, so please be patient, it might take a few days before it is finished.
The mandala above was made with Drops Paris cotton and a 5 mm hook. I really do like the colours but I didn’t like working with this yarn, although it is very soft. It splits. A lot. I still have six balls Paris left and I am not sure what to do with them. Maybe I make one big granny square or one big mandala. We’ll see.
The colours I have used are:
17 Off White (NL: Naturel)
58 Powder pink (NL: Pastelroze)
59 Light old pink (NL: Lichtoudroze)
60 Dark old pink (NL: Donker oudroze)
When I had my shower this morning I thought of making another mandala, and this time with proper photos and taking notes. With other yarn. Well, I’ll better get on with it then.
Have a nice weekend!
