Mandala yarns are very popular this year…so popular that Lion Brand is out-of-stock until January 2018!
Luckily, there are lots of this yarn to be found online, and many stores still have them in stock! For this pattern, I used 1 ball of Mandala® Yarn – Centaur colorway. A quick Google search or trip to the local craft store will help you find it.
Mandala is a sock weight yarn, but here we make it chunky! The colors are beautiful, so I used a method I will teach you that turns a sock weight yarn (3), into a chunky weight yarn (5-6).

Making it chunky results in an amazing color change, and it opens the door for so many projects and new colors from thin to chunky.
For this pattern, you will learn (if you don’t already know them) the following stitches: half double crochet (hdc), half triple crochet (htr), extended single crochet (exsc), working in back and both loops. Front post double crochet (fpdc), and back post double crochet (bpdc). There are detailed instructions on how to do each.
I hope you enjoy this pattern! Please share pics of your finished piece!
