How to simply make bigger and smaller Labyrinths, Part 2

In part 1 (see Related Post below) about the simplified seed pattern I only have spoken of the enlargement of labyrinths.

The seed pattern

But of course the number of circuits also can be reduced by this way. This is possible for all labyrinths built from this seed pattern, as well as for all containing this pattern. I would like to call them compounded labyrinths.

For me this are the Indian Labyrinth, the Baltic Wheel and the Wunderkreis. They all have only two turning points, however, the middle is formed in each case differently.
The Indian Labyrinth (Chakra Vyuha) contains a spiral, the Baltic Wheel has a big empty middle and a second access, the Wunderkreis contains a double spiral and also has the second access.

Here the Indian Labyrinth which can be generated through a seed pattern contained in a triangle:

Here the Baltic Wheel. The middle section is constructed in a special way. But the circuits round the two turning points can be increased or decreased in pairs.

The Wunderkreis has a double spiral in the middle section. The double spiral can have more or less windings (not shown here). But the typically “labyrinthine” circuits round the two turning points can be influenced as mentioned above.

In the quoted statements I would like to show that there is a “technology” through that one can influence the size of a labyrinth.
