Triptych Mandalas Part 2 – Free Crochet Pattern

Part 2 of Triptych Mandalas is short and sweet, just a few rounds and then you are all done. In this second part we will complete the medium mandala and get the large part ready for the final installment next week. Voor Nederlands, zie aub DEZE post.



You will need 6 colors of Scheepjes Catona (50g/125m) yarn and 3 mandala rings to make your Triptych Mandalas. I have designed 3 colorways as a suggestion to give you an idea of what your mandalas could look like. The colorways are Forest Fern, Blue Moon, and Rainbow Bright. You can find the colors and yarn amounts per colorway HERE.

You will also need 3 rings to finish the mandalas. You will need rings with diameter 40cm (16″), 25cm (10″) and 15cm (6″). We make the mandalas using a 3mm crochet hook.

I also have yarn kits available for all 3 colorways of Triptych Mandalas in my shop. The mandala kits include everything you need to make these mandalas including the pattern, yarn and the mandala rings.

Scheepjes Catona is available from Wool Warehouse (UK), Jimmy Beans Wool (USA), The Knitting Network (UK), Love Crafts (USA / UK), Caro’s Atelier (NL / EU), and many other Scheepjes stockists.

Triptych Mandalas Part 2 – Video Tutorials

The left handed and right handed video tutorials for Triptych Mandalas are available on my YouTube channel. Please note that these videos are in US Terminology. I appreciate that these mandalas are a little tricky from time to time and I hope the videos make it possible for everyone to make these mandalas.

What if your mandalas don’t fit in the ring?

The mandalas are designed to be approximately 10% smaller than the rings they go into. This means the medium mandala is 22cm before it goes into the 25cm ring. At the end of Round 13, your mandala should be about 21cm/8inches. If your medium mandala is larger than 21cm/8inches, replace the dc stitches of Round 13 with hdc stiches, or even sc stitches if needed. If your medium mandala is smaller, replace the dc stitches with tr stitches. All these stitches are US Terminology. If you make these changes for the medium mandala, also do this for the large mandala.

The pattern for Triptych Mandalas is available for free in 3 parts on my blog. If you prefer to have the pattern as one document, you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or in my SHOP for a small fee.


We will make these 3 mandalas during a short 3-week make along. The project will be hosted by Scheepjes in the English and Dutch Facebook groups. You can join these groups if you need any help, or want to share your work. I will be in the groups as much as possible to help you with any questions you might have, and to admire your beautiful mandalas.


If you would like to share your mandalas, use the hashtag #itsallinanutshell to help me find it on Facebook or Instagram. You can also share your work in my It’s all in a Nutshell Crochet Nuts Facebook group or tag me in one of your posts.
