Welcome
Hello and welcome to Trinity Mandalas . I hope you will love making these mandalas , I know I
enjoyed designing them.
Have you ever been challenged to do something, and then were amazed at what you did? This is
what happened to me with these mandalas . Dedri from Look at what I made set me a challenge, she
said take 10 random colors and design a mandala. She also said that if I work more than 4 rounds
without having to chart it out or frog, that I should rip those rounds back and start again. She also
told me to change colors every round, or two rounds max, to allow for maximum freedom in color
placement.
Quite a challenge , and the result is the 3 mandalas you find in this pattern. Dedri gave me a lot of
feedback during the design process and I am most grateful to her for her help.
The pattern is divided into 3 parts; in part 1 you make the small mandala, in part 2 you grow the
small mandala to become the medium mandala, and in part 3 you grow the medium mandala to
become the large mandala. I have designed these 3 mandalas to be hung together, but if you want
to make just one in any of the 3 sizes you are most welcome.
I hav e made 3 video tutorials to help you every step of the way. I hope the videos make it possible
for everyone to make these mandalas .
I would love to see your work. Feel free to tag me on Instagram, or use #itsallinanutshell to help me
find it. You can also join my Facebook group to show your work.
With love,
Esther

Gauge
The mandalas are designed to be approximately 10% smaller than the rings they go into. This means
the small mandala is 14cm before it goes into the 15cm ring, the medium mandala is 27cm before it
goes into the 30cm ring, and the large mandala is 45cm befor e it goes into the 50cm ring. The 10%
difference is important, because the mandalas need to be stretched out when placed in the ring to
ensure that they can support their own weight. If they are too large, they will be floppy and droopy
when placed in the rings.
If you find that your mandalas are too big, you are most likely lifting your stitches higher than I am. I
suggest you look at THIS VIDEO about the golden loop. If you are a so -called lifte r, your stitches will
be higher than average, and going down a hook size will not make any difference. I suggest that you
try to pull your yarn back to make your stitches shorter.

Notes
When working the mandalas I use two ways of closing a round, either with a slip stich o r with an
invisible join. You are welcome to replace all slip stitch joins with an invisible join. However, DO NOT
replace an invisible join with a slip stitch join because then the next round will be less pretty.

I start each round with a standing stitch. Feel free to replace any standing stitch with the
corresponding number of chain stitches, for ex ample a double crochet with ch3.

Color J (Black) is only used to connect the mandalas to the rings.

The pattern is designed to be made with a 50cm ring for t he large mandala. 50cm is approximately
19” or 20”, depending on how you convert. Both are fine to use with this pattern. If you have an 18”
ring, it is best to stop at Round 33, when your mandala is about 40cm (16”), and then finish the
mandala by joining it to the ring.

Pattern Part 1
Work part 1 for all 3 colorways. This means you will have 3 mandalas at the end of part 1, all the
same size, but with different color placements. The small mandala will be complete at the end of
part 1, the medium and large mandala will be grown further in parts 2 and 3.

Round 1
Ch4 and close with ss in first ch to form a ring. Ch 2 (counts as 1dc throughout), 11dc in the ring,
close with invisible join . Fasten off.
[12 dc]

Round 2
Start in an y st with a standing bpdc, bpdc in same st, 2bpdc in each st to end, close with ss in first st
to close . Fasten off.
[24 bpdc]

Round 3
Start in any st with a standing tr3tog over the next 3 sts, ch6, *tr3tog over next 3 sts, ch6 ; repeat
from * to end, close with ss. Fasten off.
[8 tr3tog, 8 ch6 -sp s]

Round 4

it. It will flatten out as it grows.
[64 dc]

Round 6
Start in the first of the 2 dc worked in 1 st with a standing sc, sc in next st, *fpdtr around next tr3tog,
do NOT skip a st, bpsc in next 6 sts (the first st will be hard to get into because it is hidden behind the
fpdtr just made) , fpdtr around the same tr3tog as which the previous fpdtr was worked, do NOT skip
a st, sc in next 2 sts (which will be the 2 dc worked in 1 st); repeat from * to end omitting final 2 sts .
Close with ss. Fasten off.

Trinity Mandalas ©2019 Esther Dijkstra – It’s all in a Nutshell
Round 8
Start in the dc worked in the fpdtr of Round 6 which is worked after any 2 sc with a standing bpsc,
bpsc in next 8 sts , * fptr2tog around next two fpdtr from Round 6 , skip the st to the back ( this is the
st after the last bp sc), bpsc in next 9 sts (the first is in a fpdtr ); repeat from * to end omitting final 9
sts . Close wi th ss in first st. Fasten off.
[8 fptr2tog, 72 bp sc]

Round 9
Start in the first st after a fptr2tog with a standing dc, dc in next 3 sts , *2dc in next st, dc in next 4 sts ,
ch2, skip the fptr2tog, dc in next 4 sts ; repeat from * to end omitting final 4 sts. Close with ss . Fasten
off.
[8 ch2 -sp, 80 dc]

Round 10
Start in any dc after the ch2 -sp with a standing sc, sc in next 9 sts , * sc in ch2 -sp, tr -popcorn in
skipped fptr2tog from Round 8 being care ful to leave the ch2 unworked, sc in ch2 -sp, sc in next 10
sts ; repeat from * to end omitting final 10 sc. Close with invisible join . Fasten off.
[8 tr-popcorn, 96 sc]


Finishing small mandala
Work away all yarn tails on all the mandalas . All the small mandalas are now approximately 14cm.
Attach th e small mandala (the first colorway) to the small, 15cm ring with Color J (Black) . Leave the
other two mandalas for the moment, we will make them bigger in parts 2 and 3.

To finish the small mandala, attach Color J (Black) with a standing bpsc around any sc AND the 15cm
ring. Work a bpsc around each sc AND the ring, skipping the tr-popcorn. Close with an invisible join
on the first st.
[96 bpsc]

Work an optional hanging chain to hang the mandala. Attach Color J (Black) with a slip stitch in any
st, chain the number of sts needed to get the required length, close the loop with a slip stitch in the
same st as in which the yarn is attached. Tie a knot between the two yarn tails to secure the loop.
Work away the yarn tails.
