chart in this series of videos I will be showing you how to read the chart as
well as how to crochet the stitches in the chart and then how to join them to
the metal ring let’s get started before you begin to read a chart it’s important
to understand the key so first I want to show you what all of the symbols mean in
the key these are all of the symbols that will be used in this particular
pattern starting with slip stitch chain single crochet half double crochet
double crochet four double crochet together and a double treble stitch when
reading a motif or a project that is worked in the round you want to remember
that it is written to be read counterclockwise meaning that it’s going
to go in this direction so if you start in the center here we start with a chain
six and a slip stitch to join then the next round is chain one and sixteen
single crochets in the chain set six ring we’re going to slip stitch to the
first stitch to join the next round begins with a chain four which counts as
a double crochet chain one then double crochet chain one in each stitch around slip stitch to the top of the third chain at
the beginning of the round to join the next round begins with a chain one
single crochet in the same stitch chain three single crochet in the next double
crochet and you’re going to repeat that around at the end of the round we’re
going to replace our last chain three space with a chain one half double
crochet into the first stitch at the beginning of the round and this creates
the same size as a chain three space but positions us at the top center of the
chain three space the next round begins with a chain one single crochet in the
chain three space chain nine single crochet in the next chain three space
and then you repeat that all the way around on the last three we repeat we
end our chain nine space with a chain four and a double treble into the first

  1. I love this!!! I don’t see a link for the ring. Where can I get one? I want to buy it from you for making this wonderful video

  2. Thank you for this wonderful tutorial. You're such an excellent instructor. I love how you explain how to read the chart. If only there were crochet charts for left handed crocheters who crochet clockwise in the round…

  3. What size ring will fot finishing at round 9 or 11 please? 12 inch rings in the UK are hard to find. They seem to go up to 6 inches?

  4. Are both the mandalas on the wall the same pattern? They look different. What about the black one as well? The black one is beautiful.
