    This is a wonderful pattern. How large is the blanket when using 3 cakes of the Mandala yarn?

    • Kara April 9, 2018 at 8:53 am #

      Finished afghan as written measures approximately 52 in. x 40 in. but can be easily adjusted to any size.

      • Patty April 9, 2018 at 6:46 pm #

        Thank you!

  2. Preeti April 9, 2018 at 8:53 am #

    Wow! That looks great, Kara! And the color combinations are lovely:)

  3. deborah April 9, 2018 at 9:34 am #

    Genius design! This is a blanket I would enjoy crocheting! Well done!

  4. Susan April 9, 2018 at 10:03 am #

    Hi Kara!
    Thanks You for this Absolutely Awesome and Gorgeous pattern! Your pattern is so very clear and easy to follow. I love your diagrams! Your blanket turned out just beautiful.
    Thank You for sharing your creativity with us.
    Kind Regards, Susan

  5. Olga April 9, 2018 at 10:21 am #

    Thank you this is beautiful. love that it is worked continuously with each square..

  6. Kate April 10, 2018 at 12:51 pm #

    Love the pattern!! Do you think the pattern would work using green hdc instead of sc? Thanks for the advice 😀

    • Kara April 11, 2018 at 8:58 am #

      Hi Kate 🙂 I’m not sure if that would work since the stitches would be taller.

  7. Tina April 11, 2018 at 8:18 am #

    I LOVE this design! It seems so simple but I don’t think it would bore me like so many other blankets I’ve tried.

    Question: Would this work up ok with a heavier weight yarn? I realize it would be larger but is that all?

    • Kara April 11, 2018 at 8:57 am #

      Hi Tina 🙂 Yep, you can work it up in another weight yarn … just be sure to change your hooks size accordingly too.

  8. Bob April 11, 2018 at 4:01 pm #

    Great pattern Kara. Thank you for sharing. Can ‘t wait to try this afghan in the Mandala yarn, my new favorite .Recently finished a rectangular granny square afghan with Mandala, it feels and drapes beautifully.

  9. Tajah April 12, 2018 at 4:38 am #

    This is a fantastic pattern, and your instructions are so clear. It’s unlike anything I have found in the yarn-iverse. I will certainly be trying this when I can get my hands on some of the self striping, Mandala yarn. Thank you for sharing your creation. It’s inspiring for new crocheters, like myself.

  10. amy April 13, 2018 at 2:36 pm #

    have 3 mandalas had to start…thank you for your pattern.

  11. Barb April 13, 2018 at 8:14 pm #

    I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong – I’m starting the second square – row 1. It looks like the second square is left of the first one – I’m not exactly sure where exactly row 1 is. I don’t see where the chains get added.

    • Kara April 17, 2018 at 6:17 pm #

      Hi Barb 🙂 you are correct that the second square of row 1 gets added to the left of the first. You should be working Row 1 along the edge of the rows from the first square and then when you reach the bottom corner, add on your chains. Hope that helps!

  12. Barb April 17, 2018 at 9:13 pm #

    Thanks – yes it does. I found my silly mistake!

  13. Susan Licht April 19, 2018 at 3:31 pm #

    This pattern is beautiful. I had the exact yarn in my collection so I started immediately. I found that it has a few pitfalls, if you are a tight crocheter it will cause problems, the squares begin to pull in the mitered corners. I changed hooks but still had problems. So finally I frogged 2 rows in and put the yarn away. It is not a relaxing crochet project, i loved it but just tired of all the counting. It is an advanced crocheting project.s

  14. Chris Eskenazi April 21, 2018 at 1:21 am #

    Is there a Youtube Video on this pattern?? Would like to see how it is made in real time. Thank you

  15. Charlotte Kidwell April 21, 2018 at 8:56 pm #

    Hi Kara:
    I have the same question as Chris Eskenazi…. Is there a YouTube tutorial on this technique for those of us who sometimes find a visual tutorial easier than written instructions, especially with a technique that is new to us? If so, that would be great! I love your designs and your patterns are so easy to follow….it’s just this technique that I would love to see demonstrated on video. Thanks!

  16. Jennifer April 22, 2018 at 3:45 pm #

    I have a quick question about the pattern, your notes say that one ball will make 33 squares, is that correct? I just finished my first ball and only have about 12 squares.

    • Kara April 22, 2018 at 4:54 pm #

      Yes, that is correct. I just recounted to make sure and 1 ball got me through 33 squares. Are you using Mandala for this?
