SPECIAL ABBREVIATIONS

( ) - work sts in brackets into same st
[ ] - repeat instructions in brackets a number of times shell - group of sts
v-st - V-stitch, (1tr 1ch 1tr) in same st
hdtr = half double treble - (yoh twice, pull up lp in next st, yoh, pull through two lps, yoh, pull through last three lps)
3tr cluster = (yoh, pull up lp in next st, yoh, pull through 2 lps,) three times, yoh, pull through all four lps)
4tr cluster = (yoh, pull up lp in next st, yoh, pull through 2 lps,) four times, yoh, pull through all four lps)
popcorn = work 6 trs in one st, pull hook out of the working lp, put hook through top of 1st tr, then back into working lp, yoh, pull through 2 lps. fpdc over cluster = insert hook through both 1ch sps at top of cluster, yoh, pull up a lp, yoh, pull through 2 lps
tr dec = decrease in trs - (yoh, pull up lp in next st, yoh, pull through 2 lps,) twice, yoh, pull through all three lps)
FO = Finish Off
Dec = Decrease

STANDING STITCHES

Standing stitches are use at the start of every round, this way each starting stitch and round will begin at the height needed for that round without the use of beginning chain.

Standing dc - slst on hook, hook through st indicated, pull up loop, yoh, pull through 2 loops
Standing htr - slst on hook, yoh, hook through st indicated, pull up loop, yoh, pull through all three loops.
Standing tr - slst on hook, yoh, hook through st indicated, pull up loop, yoh, pull through 2 loops, yoh pull through 2 loops.
When working in htr the instructions specify which loop to work in. Either the front most loop, the top front loop or the top back loop.

Note: The mandala is worked in rounds. Each round is a different colour unless stated otherwise. (some rounds are worked in two colours, while some are worked twice utilising the back & front loops) The 1st st of every row should be worked as a standing stitch.

Each round is started with a standing st, and finished with a slst into that 1st st. Each round is started in a different part of the round to keep the mandala circular. All stitches are worked front to back unless otherwise stated.
