Mandala Madness Part 14

Did you ever play hop scotch as a kid?
Well this week you are going to be hopping up and down, so make sure you jump to the right round!

Are you ready for a workout?
Ok so it's not as bad as it sounds, but as Esther always says "keep your wits about you".

Your work will be wobbly again this week...never fear it is all part of the madness.

Some of you have asked how I came up with this design, or what my process is when designing, so I have written a post all about The Method in My Madness, it may give you an idea of how my mind works. 🙂 Having said that... I have no idea how my mind works!!

 

Please remember this is my design and is covered by copyright law. You may share a link to this page with anyone, you may print off the photo or written tutorials for your own use, but please do not alter or change in any way.
Please love and respect me, as I love and respect you.

If you haven't read the introduction post, then please find it here. You will find all the information on Yarn Packs, how much yarn you will need, hook sizes, the finished size of your blanket and all the resources available.

It is worth book marking the main Mandala Madness page as it will contain all the posts about the project and each weekly part.

You may also like to add this CAL to your Ravelry Queue.

I also have a group on Ravelry, which covers all of my designs. I will try to check in there every day. I now have some lovely moderators, thank you so much for your help ladies.

I suggest taking a look through the photo tutorial here before downloading the pdf to work from, but if you just can’t wait to get started I have put all the pdf downloads together.

And for those of you who like to follow the Video Tutorial by Esther Dijkstra from itsallinanutshell.com, just click here and the link will take you straight to the video for this part.
Again my love and thanks to Esther for the amazing job she has done with these videos.

  1. Helen your design is amazing, can’t wait until you release further designs. Just finished Rose of Avalon, which was a wonderful project. Thankyou for sharing…I love being part of this community….

    • Helen Helen

      thank you 🙂

  2. Gracias por compartir estos bellos esquemas de mandalas, un beso desde Chile

    • Helen Helen

      It is my pleasure 🙂

  3. Helen- thanks for the hints! Round 88 I just wasn’t sure where my third hdc was to start. I was able to back into it (by counting backwards) by finding more easily where the 7trc are supposed to land. I guess my dc & hdc look the same in black or that particular repeat, I made an error. Point being, thank you, I would’ve been off without the hints,and have had to frog. Loving the pattern and the results.

    • Helen Helen

      so pleased you are loving it 🙂

  4. In the Dutch version the address of the website isn’t correct. I didn’t look at the other versions to see if it is the same over there. May be you can change it?
