something cute – the pattern!

nonono, i did not die on you. i’ve just been busy and lazy, that’s all :) haven’t done a whole lot of crafting, but i will get some pictures taken and make a few posts of what i’ve been working since last. in the meanwhile – here’s the pattern for the cutest little daisy flower square! having written this without the square at hand and half a year after the work, there’s a chance that an error or two has snuk in! feel free to let me know, and i’ll fix asap.

about yarn/hook:

for the something cute blanked i used sandnes duo (dk weight) and hook 4 mm. the square measures 8×8 cm. any yarn with corresponding hook will do.

first a couple of basics:

1. one flower petal: 5 dc, take hook off loop, put hook (from front to back) through 3rd chain (the last ch of space before the 5 dc) and the ”loose loop”, yo, pull through both loops on hook.

2. the first dc on row is made by chain 3

begin with colour of flower centre. chain 4, make circle with one slip stitch. as an alternative, you can try the magic adjustable ring. i used this method for something cute.

1st round:

still with colour of flower centre, chain one, 7 sc in circle. end round with slip st in chain.

change to flower colour.

2nd round:

make 1 flower petal in each sc with chain 3 between each one, end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round = 8 petals

change to background colour.

3rd round:

sl st into the first chain 3. *3 dc in the next  chain 3’s, (2 treble crochet, chain 2, 2 treble crochet) in the next chain 3 (=corner). repeat from * 3 more times. end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round.

4th round:

sl st into the first chain 3.  dc in the next  6 dc, (2 treble crochet, chain 2, 2 treble crochet) in the corner chain. dc in the next 7 dc,  (2 treble crochet, chain 2, 2 treble crochet) in the corner chain. repeat from * 2 more times. end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round.

5th round:

sl st into the first chain 3.  dc in the next 10 dc, (2 treble crochet, chain 2, 2 treble crochet) in the corner chain. dc in the next 11 dc,  (2 treble crochet, chain 2, 2 treble crochet) in the corner chain. repeat from * 2 more times. end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round.

joining:

i didn’t want the contrasting joining on the cute blanket, so i seamed it with the background colour by hand. it you may want it differently, and it is of course possible to join this in the same manner as in the something pretty pattern :)

unfortunately, i gave the baby blanket away before i remembered to take a picture of it, but i will try to get that done so that the pattern post will show a finished object.

    Very sweet pattern. Love it. Great instructions. I know too well about not getting a photo before that creation from the heart is given away.

    Would/could you make a video tutorial for this? I love it but can’t seem to figure it out via the pattern.

    Ok I’m kinda lost after round 3, is there supposed to be any sort of chaining between the 3 dc since you keep referring to the first chain 3
