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.
