I wanted to create a "filler" between motifs with an oriental favor and found a motif in Irish crochet that would work perfectly!
Problem - when using the padding cord (always written as p c) , in a leaf design, I am getting confused as to how to manage a continuous use of it to make six leaves on one circle or ring.
I have tried about every thing to make that p c come down to the ring but the main problem is when I do the second leaf, my stitches are going to be upside down to the center ring.
I didn't explain this very well and wish I could figure out a picture to show you all. I did manage to make the design without the p c but it is too "floppy" and won't give me the support between my motifs.
Anyone experienced in Irish Crochet at all with help? Thanks in advance - someone just has to know what I'm talking about.....
Work the leaves separately. You can join them to your central ring by either sewing them together or crocheting them together. Then arrange all your leaf-ring motifs as you wish and pin to a flat, padded surface. Work your filler, unpinning sections that you need to access with hook as you go. By the way, did your instructions tell you to CH1 when you make a turn on the PC? It makes it a lot easier. I actually love using the PC....it is so much easier than using a foundation chain.
