2 x 100g (196 m) balls of Stylecraft Special Aran (100% acrylic) Pistachio (1822) and 1 ball in each of Raspberry (1023) and Cream (1005). This CAL is crocheted on a 5.5mm hook.

The 'first serve' of our CAL got you started on the inner rounds of the mandala blanket. Some of you seemed to manage it without too much trouble.

Teresa kindly shared a photo of her progress on our Facebook group.
