Mandala Pullover Pattern Part 2

I am so excited to share part 2 of the Mandala Pullover Pattern with you! We get to start on the exciting part of our sweaters, the color work!

I can hardly believe we’re already at week 3 of the CAL. I have to be honest with you guys…the color work of this sweater is SO MUCH FUN! One of my favorite things to see is a color work design begin to emerge.

Now, if you’re new to crochet color work, don’t be afraid! I’ve got you covered. I just published a beginner’s guide to color work that explains everything.

WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS:

Color Key:

  • MC = Off White
  • CC = Light blue 
  • CC2 = Purple
  • CC3 = Teal

Or, if you are using different colors than me, try writing down your own colors, plugging them in to the 4 different abbreviations.

Note: this is worked in plain single crochet. You need to have at least 54 stitches across for the image to work. You’ll just have 2
