We haven't had a crochet chart reading for a while now, so I thought it is high time we make one. On pinterest I found an easy breezy chart for a cute crochet flower motif I knew was worth the try and right I was because it turned out beautifully.
Let's make some.
For these two I used spot yarn and my 1.9 mm hook. You can make it monochromatic - I chose summery colors.
Pattern: The image of the chart is horrible I know, but enlarging it messes it up profusely to the point of blurring, so size small it goes here.
Ch 6 and join to make a ring.
Rnd 1: (color 1) ch 4 (counts as 1 dc + 1 ch), dc1, ch1 until you make 9 rods (dcs) total. Sl st to end the rnd.
Rnd 2: ch 6, make a 2dc puff st in the 4th st, dc 1 over the dc of the rnd below. Repeat this until you make 9 such puffs. Sl st to end the rnd.
Note: I changed the pattern slightly - the chart shows making a puff in the 3rd st which is a No, No to me - it distorts the puff , so when you make the puffs, make sure you do it in the 4th st.
Rnd 3: (insert color 2) ch 8 (counts as 1 dc+ 5 chains), go over the puff below and dc1 over the dc rod below. Ch 5, dc1 around (9 times), and sl st in the initial chain to end rnd.
Rnd 4: (insert color 3) ch6, make a 2dc puff in the 4th st, dc 1 on the chain space, ch4 and make a 2dc puff in the 4th st, dc1 over the dc rod below. Repeat this around. Sl st to end the rnd. There should be 18 puffs in the last round.
What do you think?
Can they pass for coasters as well?
