This mandala was inspired by Pando, an 80,000 year-old quaking aspen colony in Utah. It covers 106 acres but is technically a single organism with a giant common root system. Cool, huh! The chart pack includes a second smaller chart that can be used to make a needlebook (as shown), or a biscornu, or ornament. It is stitched in Gentle Art Threads: Butternut Squash, Carrot (2 skeins), Sunflower (2 skeins), Heirloom Gold (2 skeins), Dark Chocolate, Grasshopper, Chives, and Cherry Bark. Fabric used was 28 count Opal Winter Solstice from Mystic Fabrics. A similar fabric would be Picture This Plus Crystal Aerial or Wichelt's Cornflower Blue hand-dyed linen. Stitch count is 115 for the larger, 41 for the smaller.
Pattern Keeper note - this chart can be imported into PK, but because the file contains both graphs you will initially get a warning message. PK will ask you to pick which pages are the graph you want. You'll need PK to discard either the main one or the small one, so it can focus on the one you want. Once selected, it works like a charm.
If you select the PDF version of this chart, upon completing your order, you will be able to immediately download the chart. You'll also get an email with a link. You will need Adobe Reader or an equivalent program to open the file. It goes without saying that the file is for personal use by the purchaser and cannot be transferred, shared, posted, resold, etc. There will be no shipping charges added if all items in your cart are PDF only.
