Louise’s April Blog – Day 18 & 19 - Sunny weather and free flower pattern

Hello, School visit I have had a few busy few days, including visiting George's new secondary school that he is starting in September.  We are also doing lots of preparation for SATs tests in a few weeks.

Hairdressers Today, I have been to the hairdressers which seemed to take up most of the day. We have also had a few problems with electricity going off so have had to get an electrician to fix it.

Project slump I seem to be in a grump with most of my projects at the moment. I have added a few rows on my scrappy blanket and turned the heel of my first Rose City Rollers sock.

Free Flower Pattern

I thought I would add this free flower pattern which was on our older blog.

3 colours of Double knitting yarn and 5.00 hook

Changing colour on every round

  1. Ch.4, work 11tr. into 4th ch from hook, ss. to join in 3rd ch. at beginning (12sts)
  2. 3ch., 1tr. in same place as ss. to join, 2tr. in each tr., ss. to join in top of ch. at start
  3. ss. into 1st tr., ss. into space between trs., 1ch., 1dc. in same place *2ch., miss 2tr., 1dc. in space before next st., rep from * ending 2ch., ss. to join in 1st dc.
  4. ss. into ch. space and work (1dc., 5tr., 1dc.) all in ch. space rep ( ) in each space ss. to join in 1st dc.

Fasten off ch. =    chain dc.   =    double crochet dk  =    double knitting rep.         =    repeat sp.  =    space ss. =    slip stitch sts =    stitches tr. =    treble
