Pastel Mandala Madness: Parts 6 to 9.

This photo shows the Throw right up to Part 18, but the colour order below is Parts 6 – 9crochet blanket, Mandala Madness, Scheepjes Stonewashed

I have been steadily making progress with my Pastel Mandala Madness (started in Spring 2017), made with Scheepjes Stonewashed Cotton and Acrylic mix yarn.

It is Sport/Baby weight, whatever that means. I think it is somewhere between 4ply and DK. I am using a 3.5mm hook.

The colours, and the row-by-row order up until Round 42, are listed on my first post about this blanket/throw here.

And now for the colour order up until the end of Part 9:


Part 6

Round 43, 44, 45    Axinite

Round 46    Moonstone

Part 7

Round 47, 48   Moonstone

Round 49   Pink Quartzite

Round 50, 51, 52   Moonstone


Part 8

Round 53   Pink Quartzite

Round 54, 55   Rose Quartz

Round 56, 57  Pink Quartzite

Part 9

Round 58, 59   Moonstone

Round 60    Crystal Quartz

Round 61    Amazonite

Round 62    Larimar

Round 63.  Pink Quartzite


I do love this yarn, but it is not cheap. Well worth it though as the colours and the feel of it are delicious.

  8. You are the crochet queen!! This is so beautiful! Can you imagine how much that brand costs to buy here – if it’s pricey in the UK it will be exorbitant here….. double the number, add another 30 – 40% for all the import expenses, duties and taxes etc and another 15% sales and possibly that’s the retail price of a ball of Scheepjes. I do remember looking for it once, feeling faint at the cost and exiting stage left rather quickly. I’ve blanked the full experience 😀

    • You are lovely Pauline, thank you. I think it is a Dutch company – your comment makes me wonder about how much it costs in Holland. If I ever go I must remember to visit a yarn shop and compare prices.

  9. The intricacy of this pattern makes my eyes water! And they’re impressing me with your crocheting skills and tenacity, to tackle such a long and involved project. But as I’ve experienced none of the family ties you have, perhaps that’s not unusual. 😘

  10. I think this might be my favourite of your Mandala Madnesses so far – the colours remind me of those spongy, twisted marshmallow like sweets you sometimes see.
    I’m with you on the Scheepjes yarn – I love it, so soft and nice to work with.

  12. I didn’t realise you were still working on it. Very pretty. I especially like the little cluster of three leaves and the rays. Well that’s what it suggests to me. All the Scheepjes yarn is rather pricey isn’t it.

    I love the colours. What do you do with them once they are finished – hang them on a wall, use them as table centres…?

    • I have made one for each of my 8 grandchildren. They have them as bedpsreads and snuggle under them to watch TV.
      My daughter and nieces have them as bedspreads.
      This one is destined for my daughter-in-law who loves the colours and will use it as a throw for her sofa.
      If you would like to see the others, go to my THROW page – link in the banner at the top.
      I am currently making one for myself to go on the wall.

        I hadn’t realised they were that big. I will certainly visit the throw page. But why do we always make for other people first and ourselves last? I hope you enjoy both making and looking at your own.

  16. It’s gorgeous and looks so intricate. The colours are very pretty indeed.

    • I agree it does look intricate, but the video tutorials are fantastic and take you through each stitch step by step. Such a huge sense of satisfaction when it is done. This is my 4th Mandala Madness.
