Find this project on Ravelry: Anna's Mandala
I absolutely love mandalas. They're so quick to work up, fantastic for using up scraps, and the possibilities are endless. Personally I'm a fan of doing them in cotton - it gives great stitch definition. I love using them around the house as big coasters for jugs and vases of flowers.
Which is just what Anna does. She grabs it, investigates it, and leaves it in a different, makes-sense-only-to-a-toddler place every time.
So I thought it was time she had her own. Sadly Classique Cotton doesn't come in the right shades for Anna's room, so I tried a new yarn - Drops Muskat. It's a little shinier than the Stylecraft, but it's equally lovely to work with.
The finished article sits under her table lamp in her bedroom. The whole room is starting to come together with all these FOs in there! Perhaps she needs a rug?
