This week’s mandala is an obvious choice for me; my craft space has been overtaken by overlay mandalas because of the CAL, and since I have been busy making those I thought I would showcase the first one I finished.
The mandala came out really big; around 37cms/14,5″ in diameter! I have to press/block this one because it ruffles a little.
Because this one came out so large, I am making another one with thin cotton yarn from Catania, Limone and Phildar, using a 2,5mm hook. Definitely a first for me, working with such a small hook size! But the stitches come out looking so delicate and tiny, I love the look of it all. I really want to make more items with those brands of cotton!
For those of you who are wondering: you can still join the CAL to make this mandala. Just click here and leave a comment. I’ll then forward your info to the designer who will contact you with a discount coupon to purchase the pattern.
