Thank you all so much, for all of your lovely comments!
I was totally overwhelmed. You were all so very kind, hugs to everyone!
I have just joined a blog called The flower bed . It's a flower CAL. You really must pop over and have a look, there is some stunning work happening!
This is the blanket I'm making.
I'm still using Stylecraft, and my trusty 4mm hook.
Here's the pattern.
UK terms throughout.
Round 1: Ch 4 and join to form a ring, 12dc into ring, join with a slst to first dc (12dc)
Round 2: Ch4, slst in same st, * sk1 dc, slst in next dc, ch4, slst in same st*
Rep from *to* 5 times. ( 6 4ch loops)
Round 3: * (6htr, 3ch, 6htr) into loop, slst into next slst* rep from *to* 6times.
The petals will bunch up as you work around.
This one is going on my bag.
The pattern for the spiral is super easy.
The ones above are Ch15, 3dc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 4dc in each chain along.
Till next time.
