something pretty the pattern

about this pattern: i found this pretty picture on pinterest and was totally smitten. after a lot of googling and searching i wasnt able to find the pattern, so decided to figure the pattern out myself. dottie angels pictures of her thrifty find was very helpful, and i was happy to find out that this is actually a pretty simple pattern, so novices dont be alarmed! just go ahead and try it out for more pictures, check out this, this or this post. about yarn/hook: any yarn with corresponding hook will do, i find that moving up a hook size from what the yarn says makes a softer material that would work better with a blanket. ive made pillows with these squares so that wouldnt matter so much. i used sandnes duo (dk weight) and hook 4 mm and the square measures 88 cm, with garnstudio drops paris (aran) and hook 5 mm one square is a bit over 1010. first a couple of basics:

1. one flower petal: 5 dc, take hook off loop, put hook (from front to back) through 3rd chain (the last ch of space before the 5 dc) and the loose loop, yo, pull through both loops on hook. 2. the first dc on row is made by chain 3 begin with colour of flower. chain 4, make circle with one slip stitch 1st round: chain one, 7 sc in circle. end round with slip st in chain. 2nd round: make 1 flower petal in each sc with chain 3 between each one, end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round = 8 petals 3rd round: sl st into the first chain 3. make 2 flower petals in each chain 3, and chain 3 between each flower petal = 16 petals in round. end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round. change to background colour 4th round: sl st into the first chain 3. *3 dc in the first 3 chain 3s, (3 treble crochet, chain 2, 3 treble crochet) in the next chain 3. repeat from * 3 more times. end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round. joining: i crochet the squares together with slip stitch. lay out two rows of squares, begin with the first two, make a loop on hook, put hook from front to back through back part of dc on last row, first on one, then the corresponding one on the other, yarn over and pull through three loops on hook. continue like this, when you reach the end of the first side of these two squares just go on and start with two new ones all across the length/width of your blanket/pillow, like so:

This pattern is COPYRIGHT Jackie Karp 1998/99/2000-10 Do NOT post pattern on other web sites, crochet groups etc or copy illegally. Pass on the URL instead. It is free for personal use ONLY! Square is 6 inches but can be adjusted by adding a row of sc or cutting out the last row etc. Materials: Cream, Sage Green and Purple yarn. I used a Sayelle. Lower down the page you can see another version where I used red yarn for the flower and black for the background Hook size 4.5mm or size needed to obtain a 6 inch square.

Begin by making the background and add the flower at the end Always use ch3 for the first dc of each round. With green, Ch 6 and join with sl st Rnd 1: Work 16dc in ring. sl st to join Rnd 2: Working in BACK LOOPS ONLY: 2dc in each st around. sl st to join Rnd 3: *(3dc ch2 3dc) in first st, ch2, sk next 3 sts, hdc in next st, ch2 sk next 3 sts*. Repeat from * to * 3 times more. Join with sl st Rnd 4: sl st to corner ch2 sp, *(3dc, ch2 3dc) in space, ch1, (3dc in next ch2 space, ch1) twice* Repeat from * to * 3 times more. Join with sl st Finish off green yarn Rnd 5: Join cream in any corner space. *(3dc, ch2 3dc) in space, ch1, (3dc in next sp, ch1) 3 times* Repeat from * to * 3 times more. Join with sl st Rnd 6: *(3dc, ch2 3dc) in space, ch1, (3dc in next space, ch1) 4 times* Repeat from * to * 3 times more. Join with sl st Finish off.

To make the flower With purple, join yarn to any unused front loop of rnd2 In same loop: sc, hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc. Skip next st (spare loop) In next st: *sc, hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc, skip next st*

Continue in this way until you have made all the 8 petals sl st to base of first sc on beginning petal to join Finish off
