My obsession with Scheepjes Whirl yarn has reared its head before – so I am always excited to see someone’s pattern that exploits these delicious ombre-colours to their full effect. Case in point: the Mandala Madness pattern by Helen Shrimpton.
I first tried this pattern out on the Rosewater Cocktail.
This pattern is a little tricky in that it uses a wide variety of stitches. Also every row is DIFFERENT. (The amount of creativity that went into this, I tell you.)
So while it’s a bit of a challenge to get started on a new row while binge-watching something on Netflix (I will admit to pausing what I’m watching from time to time), I like a challenge.
This used pretty much the full ball and made it to Row 57ish on the pattern. (In case you’re wondering, there are over 100 rows in this pattern!)
I’m thinking of turning this into a wall hanging, but I need a good way to mount it on a wall…
Now, I’m working on one for my Mom using Passion Fruit Melt, which I’ve used before to make a shawl. This is destined to be a funky doily:
I need to continue my binge-watching in order to progress on this one!
