Et Voila! My Pansy Pizza is all done. Don’t judge me for the name. When I made my first (wonky) prototype many years ago, it seemed like a great idea. If I am going to keep growing her (which I AM), I suppose I have to give her a better name. But for now, she’s called Pansy Pizza.
I am absolutely in love with how this turned out! Everything about this mandala makes my eyes and heart happy. The one I made in the Rainbow Softfun Minis is my favourite. Usually I shy away from using orange and red, but I am so glad that I decided to use them. They work SO WELL with the other colours :)
I do like a mandala-against-sky photo, so I dragged Christiaan out in Storm Barra. He wasn’t best pleased standing there in the rain (you can’t see it, but it was raining and VERY cold) while I took photos :)
The Pansy Pizza is 40cm blocked if you make all 10 rounds. If you stop at the end of Round 9, it is 36cm, with a stitch count of 240 stitches in the last round. This makes it the perfect size for squaring up with Part 4 of Sophie’s Universe/Sophie’s Garden.
Because I enjoyed making the Pansy Pizza so much, I made another one in the Jewel Softfun Minis colourway. I bought an extra ball of Olive (2531) because I wanted to see what the triangles would look like if I made them all in one shade instead of using two shades as above.
I wish you could experience the richness of this version in real life. The colours remind me of when I made Lillabjorn’s Circles of the Sun CAL in Linen Soft. Incidentally, that would be a lovely quick make if you are looking for hand-made Christmas gift ideas :)
Heehee, isn’t it pretty?
I will be releasing the (free) pattern for the Pansy Pizza next week. In the meantime, I am busy busy busy playing with ideas and ways to grow it.
Just in case I haven’t mentioned it enough, I am having SO MUCH fun with this one :)
