Pink Coaster Motif

Untitled

My patterns may be getting more interesting, but my pattern names... not so much.  As I was working on this motif I kept calling it the "pink coaster" or the "pink motif."  It was hard to think of calling it anything different, so I present to you, the "Pink Coaster Motif" pattern:  (just written directions this time!)

Pink Coaster Motif - copyright Signed With an Owl

Written in US crochet terms
Size 3 crochet thread
Size 2.2mm hook

Special stitches:

2 dc cluster: *yarn over, insert hook in space, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, repeat from * once, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook.

3 dc cluster: *yarn over, insert hook in space, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, repeat from * twice, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

2 tr cluster: *yarn over twice, insert hook in space, yarn over, pull up loop, (yarn over and pull through 2 loops) twice, repeat from * once, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook.

3 tr cluster: *yarn over twice, insert hook in space, yarn over, pull up loop, (yarn over and pull through 2 loops) twice, repeat from * twice, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

4 tr cluster: *yarn over twice, insert hook in space, yarn over, pull up loop, (yarn over and pull through 2 loops) twice, repeat from * three times, yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on hook.

picot: ch 3, sl st in previous sc.  (Insert hook into front loop of sc and left most vertical bar under front loop of same single crochet, yarn over, and pull through vertical bar, front loop, and loop on hook.)

  1. Ooh! Thank you for the pattern! Now I have to see if I can understand what I'm doing without the aid of a photo tutorial. It will be a good test to not being 'spoon-fed'! I'll let you know if I manage!

  5. It looks like paper dolls (dancing?) around the outside. I know it is too late, but "Dancing dolls" would be a great name. :-)
