Midnight mandala – english US terms 


I’m finaly done with my first pattern! It’s a small mandala that can be used as a dream catcher, as an aplication on a pillowcase or bag, a doily or something else. It’s up to your imagination. The finished mandala is 17,5 cm across. 

I have used the yarn Sunkissed by Scheepjes in the colours 03 and 04. Decide what colour you would like to use as colour 1 and colour 2. I have used the light blue as colour 1 and the darker blue as colour 2. 

I’m using a standing sc or a standing dc when I start a new round with a now colour. They can be replaced with 1 or 3 ch. 

Please let me know if you find any errors in the pattern or if something is unclear.

Författare: virkvisa

Välkommen hit! Hösten 2014 fick jag veta att jag skulle bli moster och då fick jag för mig att jag skulle lära mig virka så jag kunde göra en filt till bebisen. Jag började titta på tutorials på youtube, och sakta men säkert lärde jag mig grunderna. Nu, 1,5 år senare har jag bestämt mig för att lära mig så många virktekniker som möjligt och jag har även börjat designa egna mönster.
