2 Rounds of petals
3 Rounds of petals
one, two, and three rounds of petals in picture above
Each petal gets bigger by 1dc each round...up to 3 rounds of petals the ch loops are all 3ch long
Make a 2 finger magic circle
ROUND 1: 24dc into the circle, sl st to complete round.
ROUND 2: start in any st, ch4, miss a st, dc in the next st, ch2, miss a st, dc in the next st,
repeat until round complete, sl st to finish round.
12 'Spokes' made
ROUND 3: Start in any ch2 space, ch2, 2dc, ch2, sl st, in the same space, (fist petal)
sl st, into the next ch2 space and repeat, ch2, 2dc, ch2, sl st, into same space....repeat until you have
all 12 petals, sl st into the first ch st of first petal, to finish round.
ROUND 4: attach the yarn between any petal, ch3, sc in st between the next two petals,
the chain loops should be behind the petals of round 3, Don't worry if they aren't at this stage.
When all the chain 3 loops are complete sl st, into the first loop.
ROUND 5: (ch2 as first dc) do 3dc, ch2, sl st into first chain loop, repeat until all 12 petals are formed.
sl st to complete round
ROUND 6: attach the yarn between any petal, ch4, sc in st between the next two petals, the chain loops should be behind the petals of round 5
ROUND 7:continue in the same colour, ch2, 4dc, ch2,sl st into the first chain loop, repeat in each chain loop of round 4, until you have 12 petals.
basically each petal sits behind the one in front and gets bigger by 1dc each round and the chain loops get a little bigger as the layering adds more rounds
I made this Aran version with sc in rounds 1 and 2, instead of dc.
Because of the extra bulk in the yarn i found i didn't need as many stitches for some rounds
5mm hook and Aran weight yarn
CENTRE RING: Finger wrap of 8 wraps,
ROUND 1: Ch1, counts as first sc, 23sc into ring, sl st, to complete, cut and weave in ends. [24sc]
ROUND 2: Att. new col. sc, ch2, miss a st, sc, ch2, miss last, repeat to end sl st to complete. [12 x ch2 loops]
1ST ROUND OF PETALS: ch2,counts as first dc, 2dc ch2 sl st...for each petal sl st, into next ch2 loop and repeat.
2ND ROUND OF PETALS: working from the back, ch3 loops, sc between petals, work petals from the front ch2,
3dc, ch2 for each petal sl st.
3RD ROUND OF PETALS: work ch loops from the back and the petals from the front,
ch3 loops,between petals, ch2, 3dc, ch2, sl st.
4TH ROUND OF PETALS: work the ch, loops from the back and the petals from the front,
ch4 loops, between petals, ch2 4dc, ch2, sl st.
