Little Spring Mandala


Pattern: Made in K-Town by Barbara

Please respect my rights as designer: do not sell, share, translate, or publish any parts of my patterns (including pictures) online or elsewhere without my permission. Do not claim this pattern as your own. Feel free to sell the finished items you’ve made from my pattern! If you do, a link-back to my blog www.made-in-k-town.blogspot.de would be great. Thank you!


Material:

As usual, I used small amounts of Catania by Schachenmayer and a 2.5mm hook. My mandala measures 12cm in diameter (4.7") but the size will vary depending on the yarn you use.

Some general notes:

For this pattern I use US crochet terms. We’ll need the following stitches: chain stitch (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), double crochet three together (dc3tog), and surface stitches. The dc3tog and the surface stitches are explained below, please use the pictures as a help, too.

I did NOT write down the chains at the beginning of each round: for the first stitch in every round, work chains (e.g. 3 chains for the first dc) OR start with a “standing stitch” i.e. join the new color with a slip knot or a simple loop ON YOUR HOOK and just work the first sc or dc as usual. Join rounds with a sl st.

I hope I haven't lost you already :) Here we go:

1st Round: start with a magic ring and work (1dc, ch1) 12x inside the ring, fasten off (12 ch1-spaces)

2nd Round (new color): work (1sc, ch2) in every ch1-space, fasten off (12 ch2-spaces)

3rd Round (new color): work (dc3tog, ch3) in every ch2-space, fasten off (12 ch3-spaces)

Here's how you do the dc3tog: yo, insert hook into ch2-space and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yo, insert hook into the same ch2-space and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yo, insert hook into the same ch2-space and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops (4 loops on hook), yo and pull through all 4 loops on hook. (Note: to start the round, either make ch3 and then a dc2tog, or start with a standing stitch and work the dc3tog right away).

4th Round (new color): work 4 dc in every ch3-space, fasten off (48 dc, no spaces!)


5th Round (new color): work surface stitches between the dc's of the previous round, finish off

For the surface stitches, hold the yarn at the back of your work, insert hook in between any two dc’s, yo, pull loop through the gap. Now you’ve got a loose loop on your hook (hold the end of your yarn tight for the first stitch!). *Insert hook in between the next two dc’s, yo, pull loop through the gap and through the loop on your hook*. It’s like working slip stitches. Work this way around, then insert your hook in the first gap where you started, cut thread, yo, pull thread through the gap and through your loop and finish off. Use your hook or a needle to pull the loose end through to the back again, tie the two ends together and weave them in.

The 6th Round is a double round, worked into the dc’s of round 4:

6a (new color): work (1dc, ch2, skip one stitch) around, join with a slip stitch to first dc, finish off

6b (new color): Fold the stitches you’ve just made a little bit to the front and repeat round 6a, working into the stitches you’ve skipped before, finish off (2x 24 ch2-spaces)


7th Round (new color): work 3dc into the ch2-spaces of the previous round, finish off. Make sure you insert your hook into both spaces of round 6a and b! (72dc, no spaces!)

8th Round (new color): work (1sc, ch4) between every 3dc-group.

9th Round (same color): work (1hdc, 3dc, 1hdc) in every ch4-space. Finish off, and weave in all the loose ends.



I hope you enjoy making this Spring Mandala!

  15. hello Barbara
    I'm your newest follower.
    I very much like your combination of colours it gives it a subtle look...very nice. I've also been looking at your crocheted stones....I've done a few in the past but using fine cotton but it does make it slower to complete so I think I'll try with a thicker yarn as I see yours have turned out very neat indeed.

    Amanda :-)

  20. I love this, it's beautiful! Thanks for posting it. :) A question - I would love to turn this into a rug. Could I just continue the pattern and make the mandala very big to do so?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Emma, and thanks for your comment! Of course you can make a bigger circle, it's fun to play around with different stitches and stitch combinations and see what's working and what not. You just have to make sure, that you increase a few stitches per round, so that the circle won't cup

      Delete
    2. OK, I'm a very beginner crochet-er so this may be something of a future project for me, but when I have enough skill to adapt the pattern to provide me with a rug I shall be back! Thanks again - can't wait to get stitching this! :)

      Delete
    3. Hi Barbara, I've just thought of another question - do you (or anyone else who's reading for that matter) know how I could upsize the pattern into a reasonably big floor rug? I'm guessing the yarn you used wouldn't be thick enough? If not, do you know of any yarns using the same colours as yours which I could use?

      Delete
    4. Hi, I recently saw a crochet rug using a doily pattern with multiple strands held together. She said she used 8 strands, seemed like a lot to me but you could try & see what you like

    1. Hi Kelli! Honestly, I really don't know what to do with it, I just enjoy making them :) I've made a similar mandala, added more rounds and turned it into a cover for a stool (you can find that post here on my blog). I also like the idea of using the mandalas as ends for a bolster cover (a suggestion by "cherishables" further above).

  103. I made a few! I used crochet thread in only two colors, and it went really well! I managed to not have to cut/weave because I alternated only two colors and could drop/pickup the colors after each row. My hands are sore, though.

  109. I made your mandala, adapting the colours (didn't make the surface stitches, though)... It was very easy to crochet and I'll be using part of your pattern to make some colourful flowers. The photo is on my Facebook page (hope the link works): http://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/p403x403/1525159_532768926820424_1180625089_n.jpg

  113. Hello Barbara! I'm a bit late to the mandala party - but better late than never right?! I spent a wonderful weekend making your beautiful mandalas, so thank you so much for sharing this pretty pattern with us. It has inspired me to create my own mandala design. I've featured them on my latest post with a link back to you. Here's the link if you fancy taking a peek...

  128. Gorgeous! I used your initial rounds as the basis for my Mandala that I've made for Yarndale. I've just popped it up on my blog, with info on how I did the final rounds to make it 20cm across. http://thehouseofjones.wordpress.com/2014/06/27/mandala-for-yarndale/
    Thank you so much for a brilliant tutorial!
