Easy
Basic stitches, simple shaping and finishing.
Concentration required.

Yarn: Weight – DK (11 wpi) 3 : Light
Color – 4 colors – color change indicted in pattern

Hook: 4.00 mm

Size: 23 cm x 23 cm (approx. 9 inches)

Notes:

I use US Crochet stitch terminology

Abbreviations:
CH – chain
SL ST – slip stitch
SC – single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
DC – double crochet
TR – treble crochet

SPECIAL STITCHES:
TR2tog:
work 2 TR stitches together.
* Yarn around hook twice, insert into ST, yarn around hook and pull up 1 loop. Yarn around hook and pull thru 2 of the loops on the hook. Yarn around hook and pull thru 2 of the loops on the hook .* Repeat from * to *1 more time. You now have 3 loops on the hook. Yarn around hook and pull thru all 3 remaining loops on hook.
Here is an awesome photo tutorial from Oombawka Design.

BEG CL (beginning cluster): CH 3 ; work 2 DC together:
[yarn around hook; insert into ST; pull yarn thru; yarn around hook; pull thru 2 loops on hook] x 2;
yarn around hook and pull thru all 3 remaining loops on hook.
CL (cluster):
 Work 3 DC together –
[yarn around hook; insert into ST; pull yarn thru; yarn around hook; pull thru 2 loops on hook] x 3;
yarn around hook and pull thru all 4 remaining loops on hook.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
