My first written pattern. I wanted something "springy" for an exchange I am in.
Lily Sugar n Cream 4 ply cotton Lavender Ice (or colors of your choice)
Size H crochet hook
Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Up to individual
Not important to over all project
Teatime in Spring
Row 1 – DC in 3rd chain from hook and each chain across (38 DC) Ch 4 (counts as DC & ch 1 throughout) Turn
Row 2- DC in 2nd DC, ch 1, *skip DC, DC in next DC, ch 1*, repeat from * to *, DC in last DC. Ch 3, turn
Row 3- DC in first ch 1 sp, *ch 1, sk DC, DC in next ch 1 sp*. Repeat * to * across to last sp & DC. DC in last ch sp and top of ch 3 (this was the ch 4 from row 1) Chain 4 turn.
CORRECTED TO READ: Repeat row 3 for pattern ending with row 2 for as wide as you want your placemat.
Last row, DC in each DC & ch space across.
Finish off. Weave in ends
Centerpiece is made the same as the placemat. I made the following changes to mine. I made it a few rows wider than the placemats. At the end of the last row, I did a border of DC all the way around (3 DC in corners) and then another row of *sc, sk dc, 3dc in next dc, sk dc, sc* around with 3 Dc in each corner.
Start with magic circle.
Row 1-Ch 4, (counts as DC +ch 1) DC, ch 1 in circle 13 times. End with ch 1, sl st in 3rd ch of ch 4. (14 DC, 14 sp) Ch 4 TURN
Row 2- *DC in next DC, Ch 1, DC in ch 1 sp,* Repeat around join with sl st to 3rd ch of ch 4– 28 DC Ch 3 TURN
Row 3 – DC in each dc & ch sp around. Join with sl st to top of ch 3. (56 DC)
Finish off weave in ends.
Row 1- DC in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across. Ch 4 Turn
Row 2- DC in 2nd DC *ch 1, sk DC, DC in next DC* across to end. Ch 3 Turn
Row 3. DC in 2nd DC and each DC & ch sp across. At end of row, bring the opposite end over and join the 2 ends with slip stitch over all 3 rows to form a ring. (or use the stitch of your choice)
