Shop the yarn

You can buy Scheepjes Catona from Scheepjes retailers, or from the webshops below:

Crochet hook

3.0mm (US size C/2).

Measurements

The finished mandala in its ring is 25cm (10in) in diameter.

Gauge/Tension

After finishing Round 9, the mandala should measure 10cm (4in) in diameter.

Notes

The pattern is worked in the round. This means that you will always work on the right side of the pattern and not the backside.

The mandala is supposed to be approximately 23cm in diameter when Round 22 is finished. The Mandala looks best in its ring when it’s slightly smaller. In Round 23 you will stretch it to show off all the chain spaces in the pattern.
