This mandala gives yet another modern twist to the old fashioned Granny square.

I dare you to use your leftovers scraps for the Ode to Granny mandala and create a colourful piece that will truly be an ode to the history of the Granny square and our grannies.

Which yarn to use?
I used Hobbii Rainbow 8/4 which is a fingering weight yarn and a 3mm hook. This way my mandala turned out around 42cm and I used a 45cm hoop.

I hope you feel free to experiment and use different colours and different yarn. I’m looking forward to seeing yours!

By the way, you’re not in any way obliged to attach the mandala to a ring. This mandala could also pass as a doily. Put her on a table outside or inside!
