This collection is my first venture into the craft of crochet and I wanted
to create stylish garments that would engage the seasoned crocheters as
well as knitters who, like me, had been intrigued by its possibilities but
needed fairly simple patterns to begin with.
4th round 5ch (counts as first tr and 2ch), [2tr/dc, 2ch, 2tr/dc] in next ch-sp, * 2ch, miss 2tr/dc, 1tr/dc in next tr/dc, [2ch, 1tr/dc in next tr/dc] twice, 2ch, [2tr/dc, 2ch, 2tr/dc] in next ch-sp; rep from * twice more, 2ch, miss 2tr/dc, [1tr/dc in next tr/dc, 2ch] twice, ss in 3rd of 5ch.
Foundation row (right side) 1tr/dc in 8th ch from hook, [2ch, miss 2ch, 1tr/dc in next ch] to end, turn.
After working the 3rd crochet motif, the following sentence should read:
Cont in this way until 12(12:13:13) motifs have been worked, join the 12th(12th:13th:13th) motif to first motif on the 7th, 8th and 9th picots to form a ring.
