When I finished that Diamond Lace Crochet Baby Blanket, I knew I wanted to use the stitch again (and maybe again and again) in more designs. It is fun and simple and it makes such a gorgeous pattern that looks amazing blocked or unblocked, plus it is made up almost entirely of chains and single crochets, with double crochet stitches thrown in there every so often!

Yarn Used For The Mandala Yarn Scarf Pattern
For this beautiful scarf, I knew I wanted to use a self-striping yarn and Lion Brand Yarn Mandala was just what I had in mind. Mandala is an acrylic category 3 light weight yarn.
While I absolutely love the Lion Brand Mandala Warlock colorway, I did not love the lightest color of the group so………….
I cut it out! I almost feel wrong saying that. It felt wrong doing it, but it was so right! The color, while beautiful, just didn’t flow.

I used three cakes of Mandala in Warlock, but it wasn’t 3 full cakes since I cut out an entire color from each cake. Also, the third cake was wound quite differently than the other two so I ended up rolling half of it into a ball, cutting, and working through that ball first to maintain the same striping pattern.
The wrap turned out even fancier and even more beautiful than I imagined! My plan was to make something I could wrap myself in as the evenings get cooler, but it is so lovely I think I will end up wearing it out.

It also works as a great, large scarf. No matter how I end up using it, I am excited that it will look nice draped on the side of my couch when not in use!
