Note: This pattern would not exist without me first attempting to make this motif by Snowcatcher (which is awesome and you should check it out for many more tutorials) and it is pretty much based on it, so the rules for sharing it apply to this pattern as well.
This is the first project where I realized that I'm now familiar enough with the mechanics of crochet that I can make things without a pattern. It's always awesome when that happens and I hope that the pattern will be of use to some of you.
The motif is crocheted in the round. Gauge depends on the size of your hook and your yarn. I used scrap yarn left over from another project, so I don't know the parameters, and a 3.0 hook. Since I live and shop in the Czech Republic, the hook and yarn parameters are probably different anyway.
US crochet terminology is used for the pattern.
|Several motifs sewn together with a tapestry needle.|
Picot loop: ch [number of ch requested], insert hook from front into the previous st, sl st back
Picot: ch 3, proceed as above.
- Form a magic ring or ch 5 and sl st into first ch to make a ring.
- Ch 2 (counts as dc), 1 dc, ch 6 and form a picot loop, [2 dc, ch 6 picot loop] 3 times, 1 dc, sl st into the top ch of the initial chain.
- Sl st into 1st 6-loop, ch 2 (= dc), *1 dc, 2 tr, ch 8 and form a picot loop, 2 tr, 2 dc*, dc into next loop, repeat from *.
- Sl st between the two petals you just made, ch 2. 1 tr into the adjacent 8-loop, 1 tr, 2 dc, 2 hdc, 2 sc, form picot, 2 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 2 tr. 1 dc between petals, repeat around.
