NEW CHRISTMAS ROSE MOTIF AS PROMISED....

A pretty Flower motif that has a secondary lacy pattern that appears as you join the squares together....one of the designs i offered to Simply Crochet for their Christmas special they picked my favourite of the 4, the one I thought best for the brief.  
This is one of the other 3 designs.

So I am sharing it as a freebie to say thank you for all the support from all you fabulous hookers out there that follow me here and on my terrific Facebook group


4 Cols. needed each round a different col.
Use any shade of green for the last round and colours, reds, blue or yellows for the first 2 rounds, have fun with colour.

[4sides and 4 corners]

 4 sides


4 corners

Join at the picots and ch9 corners to make the secondary lacy pattern

HOW TO DO THE CH5 PICOT:
I know one or two find picot stitches a little daunting to do but it really is an easy stitch to do when you one where to put the hook to complete the stitch...
These pictures below are from the Angel Wings Shawl and they are for a chain 3 picot, 
but it shows you where to put the stitch to complete the picot stitch




Enjoy the pattern and i hope you will share any makes 
Have fun all x

  3. Hello - I'm sorry to post this here but I have tried several ways of getting in touch with you. I love your art.
    last Sunday (9th) I registered for the Pattern 2017 Club and and paid for membership also. I received the link email on Monday morning. I tried to open it on my phone and was told I couldn't because I didn't have java. I then tried to open it on my mac and was told it had already been used! Could you please send me a new link so I can access Patterns 2017?
    Thanks for your help.
    Kathryn
