I'm busy making these lovely squares at the moment, easy to transport ( will I be allowed a crochet hook on the plane ?).
They are very easy to make::
Using any colour you fancy:
foundation 5 chain, slip stitch to join
row 1 chain and 7 double crochet
row 2 draw up the loop from last stitch until it is about a cm and a half long, yarn over,pick up yarn stretch out to same length- But leave on the hook
repeat the yarn over and pick up yarn until there are 9 loops on the hook, then take all the loops off the hook in one nice tight stitch, make 2 chain then repeat into the next double crochet until you have 8 petals of your flower, join circle with a slip stitch.
row 3 Join colour for circle ( I have used turquoise )
make 3 chain and 3 trebles, in the next space 5 trebles, the next space 4 and so on , join circle with a slip stitch
row 4 Join colour for border ( I have used blue)
make 3 chain then 5 trebles in the next 5 stitches, in the next stitch make 3 trebles, continue 8 trebles in the next 8 stitches then make the next corner as above. Continue to the end of the round and join with a slip stitch.
row 5 Make 3 chain then 6 trebles into next 6 stitches, make 2 trebles between first 2 corner stitches from previous round, then 2 more between next 2 (there are now 4 stitches in the corner). Continue in this pattern to end of the round and join with a slip stitch.
They look so nice joined together I suspect they may grow into a lovely blanket, I didn't really plan to make one.
I really want to make something to wear but I haven't got a pattern I fancy making -yet !
