an order i finished last sunday. it works up quite quickly.
(start with color 1) for the foundation, chain multiple of 3, plus 1.
row 1 - v stitch (dc, ch 1, dc) in 5th ch from hook. [sk 2 ch, v stitch] to last 2ch. sk 1 ch, dc in last ch.
next rows - ch 3, v stitch in each ch1 sp across, dc on top of turning ch from last row.
edging: (change to color 2, or not - your call) ch 1, sc around evenly, working 2 or 3 scs on each corner, join with sl st.
(change back to color 1) ch 1, work shell (sk 2 sc, 5 dc in next sc, sk 2 sc, sc in next sc) around, join with sl st.
this last part can be a little tricky if your stitch count doesnt match up. but you can get around it, by adjusting the shell (sk 1 or 3 sc instead of 2) in some places.
just something i made last week. pattern can be found here, but i made some adjustments.
instead of forming 8ch into a ring with sl st, i used magic adjustable ring. and maybe because i used the ring, 9 petals fit better, instead of 10 in the pattern. i decreased the pattern count from round 4 onward.
so for round 4, it’s 54 dcs (space it evenly), for round 5 it’s 9 shells, 9 sc and so on.
