Mandala Sparkle Yarn From Lion Brand
I used Mandala Sparkle yarn which is so colorful and does truly sparkle when you see it in person. I tried to capture it with the camera the best I could because sparkles are fun and I wanted you to see how awesome they look.
Can you see it?
When I opened the box that this came in (Thanks Lion Brand Yarn!) my daughter instantly loved the sparkles, the “Unicorn” colors and wanted me to make something with it just for her. Surprise, Surprise!
You can get the Mandala Sparkle online from LionBrand.com in some pretty colors.
If you’d prefer to try a different color-way than “Unicorn” aka as Draco on Lion Brand’s website then you’ll have some pretty good choices to pick from!

Skill Level: Intermediate
- ch(s) = chain(s)
- hdc(s) = half double crochet(s)
- st(s) = stitch(es)
- hdc2tog = half double crochet 2 together aka decreasing.
I suggest counting and recounting your st’s as you go to make so you will be sure you have the correct amount of stitches throughout the scarf. Every row should end with 5 hdc’s then a hdc2tog.

Each row is approx 9 inches wide, Each row is approx .5 inches high, Gauge is 5 hdc’s for every 2″ (important for proper sizing)

This is beautiful and was wonder if this could be made into an afghan for a pre teen
I agree this would look great as a blanket!
I would like to know what (for row 2-135) means?
Hi, using 50-51 beginning chain is working well, but I’m going to add your tips to the pattern. Thank you
I’m curious as to what I might be doing wrong (I’ve adjusted and it is coming out great) I’m using Loops & Threads Joy DK Tricot Double Bonheur. It is #3. Using a H hook. Following the pattern it was only 3 inches wide. I’m a fairly loose crocheter so it isn’t too tight. I ended up using 51 foundation stitches. It is now a little under 12 inches wide which is fine.
What are your thoughts on what I may have mixed up or done wrong?
My gauge was a little over 5 hdcs’s for ever 2 inches when using an H hook. I tend to crochet pretty loose though. I would suggest using a bigger hook to try to get that gauge so it works or if you’d like to change the size if you make this again you can use a beginning chain that is a multiple of 17 then add 16 additional chains to whatever multiple of 17 you have chosen.
I love this scarf!!! Do you think this could be made with fingerling weight yarn also? Thanks so much for sharing your pattern!
It definitely could but it would be a bit smaller but I think it would still look beautiful!
Thanks for the kind words. 🙂
