It was so hot in Memphis today!   The heat, the sun, and the beautiful pink, purple, yellow sunset inspired me, so I set out to design a mini mandala motif dedicated to this hot hot hot summer and that beautiful sunset.  I used Scheepjes Stone-Washed for these motifs.  It’s a light DK weight yarn and they measure around 4″ in diameter.  Keep an eye out for a post on squaring them out to use for a blanket!

The pattern is worked in the round, using a few basic stitches.

Techniques you can learn working this pattern:

  • chain stitch (ch)
  • slip stitch (sl st)
  • single crochet (sc)
  • spike stitch (sp st), also known as long single crochet
  • front post double crochet 3 together (fpdc3tog)
  • Working in both loops (BL) and front loops (FL)
  • Working in back loops only (BLO).
  • You will also learn to increase (two stitches in the same stitch is one increase)
  • Magic Circle

I ordered some Scheepjes Stone Washed a few months ago, and was dying to do something fun and creative with it. These motifs are soft, and have a “stone-washed”, summery look to them, it seemed perfect for this project.

These mandala’s can be worked together to create a pillow, or headband, or even a blanket if you’re feeling brave!
