Legacy Mandala – Free Crochet Pattern

Ready to start working on your Legacy Mandala pattern? Here we go!

Below is the pattern using UK terminology. You will be able to get your hands on the US version via a pdf from my Ravelry store or LoveCrafts. I’ll work on an NL translation too, but this will take time.


You’ll need two skeins of Scheepjes Legacy No. 6 in off-white (ecru) and a wire hoop. I found my 90cm hoop at Lampenkapmaterialen.com here in Almere, but there are places that you can find them everywhere; have a look to see what’s local.

For the yarn, Scheepjes has a full list of stockists on their website, you can search for one close to you.

In Europe head to Caro’s Atelier*
In the UK Black Sheep Wools*

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in rounds, slip stitching to join. The last ch round is worked around the hoop. You can increase or decrease the diameter by adding or removing a set of repeats between rounds 15-24.

Now it’s time to work around the hoop. Each ch10 should loop over the hoop before slip stitching to next ch-sp.

Round 39 ss5, (ch10, ss to ch9-sp) to end, ss to join
Round 40 dc sets of 10 between each loop over the hoop all the way around the hoop. Ss to join.
Optional to create a loop to hang the legacy mandala: ch7, ss to next, tie off.


Please note, the chart shows only a segment of the full mandala and rounds 15, 17, 25, 27 and 29 slip stitch backwards on the chart. This is to keep the start and finish of the rounds in roughly the same place on the chart. You can ss forward, as normal.

Also note, the chart shows rounds 1-30, when the written pattern has a repeat of rounds 15-24. Please also repeat rounds 15-24 when working from the chart (unless making a smaller mandala).

The chart key has both UK and US terms (dc/sc)
