Anniversary Mandala by Julie Yeager
So happy to see all the exciting photos of your mandalas popping up on FB, Ravelry, and Instagram. I love to see your progress! This week completes the first four weeks, and finishes the one cake of Anniversary Cakes if that is what you are using. If you are using a thinner yarn or just wish to expand with more of the super-bulky, I have about fourteen more rounds to come in Week 5 to give you an idea of the final size.
If you need yarn, please consider purchasing through any of the links here on my blog and I will receive a small commission. Check out the 20% off sale at Michaels, purchase Stone Washed XL at Deramores or Wool Warehouse, or see what is new at KnitPicks/LoveCrochet, LoveCrafts, Yarnspirations, or Lion Brand.
If you look to the right on your laptop or scroll down on your phone, I am using a new email program to update you when there is a new blog post. Please subscribe; this will only be used for blog updates, news of new patterns, crochet and yarn news, yarn sales, and crafty things of interest and you can unsubscribe at any time.
You can use the Print Friendly button to print the pattern. I am publishing the full pattern on Ravelry and Etsy as a paid pattern if you would like to have a downloadable PDF.
Come share photos, ask for help, and discuss progress on my Facebook Group – Crochet-A-Long with JulieAnny and on my Ravelry Board – Julie Yeager Designs. Welcome Aboard New Customers – see Coupon Code for discount.
