Hello friends, I am back with another mandala today. Yesterday I showed you the Rainbow mandala, today I have a sunny mandala to share. So let us have a look at it first:
If you have been following my blog and you think this mandala looks familiar, then you are right. I have made this mandala earlier in "cool" colours.
This time I thought I will go for warm colours. Happy colours that will remind me of the rising sun you know, red, yellow, orange and green.
After the mandala was done I was not so sure about the colour palette and felt it looked "weird". What do you think? Does it look like an explosion of too many bright colours in one place?
But regardless of the colours, I love this pattern.
Especially the row which has two colours worked into it.
So that is my Rising Sun mandala.
If you would like to have a go at it, the pattern details can be found in my original Vibrant mandala post. It is definitely worth a try as it is a very happy design. I made the first mandala as part of a crochet-a-long and as you can see there were some really funky colour combinations. So go ahead and make it in your own favorite colours!
A few more pics before I sign off.

Once again I have used Laura knitting cotton and a 3.5mm hook. I hope you will try this pattern. And if you do make your own mandala, feel free to share your pictures on my Facebook page. I hope you are already a fan of my Facebook Crochetkari page, if not then don't forget to "Like" my page as I always reveal my latest projects there first, before I find time to blog about them. I find it a fast way to share my creations and then I add all the project details and pattern links in my blog post. If you have any questions about this pattern or crochet in general, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can get this finished mandala in my shop.
So until the next time, Happy Crafting and have a great week ahead.
