Lion Brand Mandala Yarn in Shade Unicorn

I used one of my favourite yarns, which is Lion Brand’s Mandala cake in shade Unicorn, which features my three favourite colours: pink, grey and white. It was a joy to make, and was a really quick week-end project, making it perfect gifting material.

Let me know if you decided to switch up the colours, and I love to see your finished crocheted art works, so I am always delighted to be tagged on Facebook or Instagram if you wish me to see these.
