April Showers Mandala was created for Simy’s Studio challenge. In April I designed a crocheted piece inspired by a digital illustration. After finished design was revealed I received huuuuuge number of messages asking for a pattern. And finally, here it is!

You’ll need:

~ Sport/DK yarn in 5 colors. I used Stone Washed yarn by Scheepjes. And my shades are:
801 Moon Stone (15g - 1 skein),
814 Crystal Quartz (45g – 1 skein),
805 Blue Apatite (30g – 1 skein),
813 Amazonite (75g – 2 skeins) and
802 Smokey Quartz (35g – 1 skein). All amounts are approximate, and if you gauge differs a lot, you might need more yarn.

~ 4mm crochet hook
~ yarn needle to weave in ends

Finished mandala is approx. 70cm/27.5” large measured from point to point - made with Sport/DK yarn and 4mm hook
