welcome to the second week in our kinda crochet along:) for those just getting here I’ll be posting pattern I posted last week at the end:).
what’s new this week is the number of motifs you need for the next 2 color for both C and D you need 44….now don’t worry I plan to add those numbers to the bottom of the pattern.
So how’s every on doing on their blankets?? Me I’m not doing so good, I’ve made a total of 2 motifs. 🙂
Sport yarn( I think I’m using worsted weight):
1 oz in A (brown) (I think I’m changing this to gold for my project)
8 oz B (rust) (this one I might make brown…not sure yet
8 oz C (red)
8 oz D (light orange)
8 oz E (dark orange)
Size D crochet hook
One motif measures approx 4″ (mine was 3 1/2 but I used worsted weight yarn) in diameter worked on a size D hook
To save time, take time to check gauge. (Shhh I don’t usually do this lol)
Using A, ch 4 and join with a sl st to first ch to form a ring.
1st round: ch 3, 11 DC in ring. Join with a sl st to 3rd of ch-3.
2nd round: ch 3, 1 DC in same place as sl st, *ch 2, 2 DC in next dc, rep from *,ending with ch 2. Join with sl st to 3rd of ch-3.
3rd round: ch 3, *yo, insert hook in next ch-2 sp, draw through a loop, yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, insert hook in same sp, yo, draw through a loop, yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through remember 3 loops – called 2 dc tog -, ch 2, 1 SC in same sp, rep from *, omitting last 1 sc, join with sl st to 3rd of ch-3.
4th round: * ch 1, 5dc in ch-2 sp, ch1, 1 SC in 2 DC tog, rep from * to end. Join with a sl st to sl st of previous round.
