My Grapevine Mandala

  • The below photos are the small version of the Grapevine Mandala that I made.
  • I partially blocked it as the first photo shows, which I found was enough to straighten it out.
  • It is 39cm diameter, but may turn out bigger if I was to block it properly.
  • I was very happy with the result.
  • This pattern is more complicated than I’m used to, but I managed it without any problems 😊
  • Definitely worth the time!!
  • I used Ice Yarns Alara 8ply cotton blend. It took less than a ball of each colour. I think it would be nice in 100% cotton also.
