I wanted to play around with the idea of making a smaller afghan and a wearable piece out of the same design. The idea in my head was to release one document download with two variations included. I thought it would be a fun little twist to the worked in the round mandala designs I love so much.

Naming this design Morphed Madness was an easy choice. The design morphs, or changes, from a lapghan to a shawl. The madness came in to play when it took way longer than I expected to get the shawl section written. The whole thing made me a little crazy.

This is my most basic design, lacking a lot of the overlay and intricacies I have become known for, but it still impresses.

Using any bulky yarn makes this a quick project to work.

Both designs are made using Loops and Threads Madrid yarn, this is a discontinued yarn. Any bulky yarn or worsted weight yarn will work. Using worsted weight yarn will change your finished size. If you like the slow, blended color changing effect that made Madrid so fun to use please try Scarfie by Lion Brand.
