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
- Ch.4, work 11tr. into 4th ch from hook, ss. to join in 3rd ch. at beginning (12sts)
- 3ch., 1tr. in same place as ss. to join, 2tr. in each tr., ss. to join in top of ch. at start
- 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.
- 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
