This is a pattern that I came up with one night when I had, had enough of using my brain following other patterns. If it is already out there surfing the WWW then apologies but I haven't found this pattern on my travels and in case you haven't either then here is a tutorial...
I am using Rowan Linen yarn which is a sturdy DK therefore requires a 4.5mm hook.
Instructions will use US terminology.
but a little conversion is...
Slip Stitch(SS) =same
Double Crochet(DC) =Treble(UK)
They are the only stitches I use in this pattern.
To begin Chain 2.
DC into the first chain(this will become the centre) Ch1.
*DC, Ch1* repeat 11 times(12 stitches in total)
Tighten the centre by pulling the tail firmly.
Join to first DC with SS as shown.
SS into first Ch space
Ch3, DC twice into same Ch space. Ch1
*3 DC into next Ch space, Ch 1* repeat to end
Join with SS at the top of the 3Ch as shown.
SS into the top of the next stich. I have placed the needle where this is.
Do the same in the next stitch.
SS into the Ch space of the previous round and Ch3.
2DC, 2Ch, 3DC into same space.
3DC into next Ch space(DO NOT Ch1 to get to next space)
*3DC, Ch2, 3DC into next space. 3DC into next space* repeat to end.
SS to join to top of Ch3. Finish and weave in ends.
That is it! How easy is that? I hope that it is an easy to understand tutorial. It is my first so please, anything I have missed or messed up PLEASE let me know xxx
