Rainbow Mandala Waistcoat
The soothing process of working the colourful stitches of a mandala is amplified with this creative project. Vibrant lacy rounds radiate from a central colour wheel, resulting in a breathtaking sleeveless garment that hangs beautifully and is a joy to make.
The shawl is worked in the round as a large circle with the armholes positioned part way round the circle. The top part folds over to form a collar.
The length from the top of the shoulder to the lowest part of the shawl is 74cm. It measures 36cm across shoulders between the armholes, and 54cm across the bust line at the back between the armholes. The model in these images is a UK size 8 and given these measurements, the shawl will comfortably fit up to a UK size 14.
