My square design reminding me of faded summer glory. I am calling it “Esprit de Fleur”.
It starts with yarn in faded vintage colours, I used Scheepjes Stone Washed DK
Ch5, ss to close to form a ring.
Round 1: Work 8dc into the ring, ss to join.
Round 2: Ch3, work (htr, 1ch) in each of next 7 sts, ss to join.
Round 3: * ss in first 1ch-sp, (ch2, 2tr, 1ch, ss) in same sp; rep. from * in each 1ch-sp, ss to join. – 8 Flower Petals
Change colour and working from behind the petals just made continue:
Round 4: Attach new colour behind first petal, *4ch, ss 2 sts along behind same petal (use photo as guide); rep from * around – 8 4ch-sp’s.
Round 5: ss into first 4ch-sp, 3ch, 2tr in same space, *(3tr, 2ch, 3tr) in next 4ch-sp (corner), 3tr in next 4ch-sp; rep from * around.
Round 6: Work 1tr in each tr around and (3tr, 1ch, 3tr) in each corner.
Fasten off and weave in ends. (or continue working extra rounds to make the square larger)
Hope you like it!
