Basic stitches, simple shaping and finishing.
MoYa 100% Cotton DK – 20 g- 40 g (I had 20 g each in the two colorways – variegated and plain)
Hooks & Notions:
Hook 4.50 mm (clover)
CH – chain
SC – single crochet
DC – double crochet
Size: with my hook and yarn approx 6 x 9 inches
NOTE: for the foundation chain and working the LAST ROW – I used a larger hook (5, 00 mm) because of my tension – this was to avoid the tightness created when working the first and last row. You can also just work the chains more loosely.
Create a foundation chain that is multiplied by four plus four
ROW 1: Work 1 DC into the 8th CH from hook (to create corner loop), then work (1 CH, 1 DC) 3 times into same CH.
*SKIP 3 CH, work k 1 DC into next CH, then work (1 CH, 1 DC) 3 times into the same CH (1 SHELL). Repeat from * until last 4 CH, SKIP 3 CH, work 1 DC into last CH, TURN
ROW 2: CH 3, *work 1 DC into the middle of the SHELL, then work (1 CH, 1 DC) 3 times into same CH space. Repeat from * until last ST, work 1 DC into middle of corner loop space, TURN
ROW 3: CH 3, *work 1 DC into the middle of the SHELL, then work (1 CH, 1 DC) 3 times into same CH space. Repeat from * until last ST, work 1 DC into 3rd CH of 3 CH, TURN
Repeat ROW 3 for required length.
LAST ROW: CH1; work 1 SC into first DC; CH 2; work 1 SC into the middle of the SHELL;
CH4. Repeat from until LAST SHELL worked; CH 2; work 1 SC into 3rd CH of 3 CH.
Fasten off and then weave in ends.
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.
