I used two different sparkly yarns, DK and a 4.5mm hook for this crochet mandala, Hayfield Baby Sparkle is the blue and silver and is a silky-cotton type yarn and the very very pale lilac is Sirdar Snuggly Pearl DK which is just soo soo beautiful! I really can't wait to make a cardigan with it!

As with all my patterns, there are no set rules! Pick your own colours, yarn weights and change up a stitch if you want to. Embracing and celebrating your own creativity is what makes Fibre Art so awesome!!
