Special stitches

  • Beg DC = (SC, Ch-1)
  • Beg TR = (SC, Ch-2)

 

Foundation: Ch-3 and join in first Ch to make ring. You may also make a magic circle if you prefer that method. Also feel free to chain more stitches if you are used to chaining 4 or 5. I like to chain 3 for my ring, because I like the center hole to disappear when I weave ends.

Work 6 Rounds as follows…

Round 1: All in ring, working over center tail so as to pull center circle closed tight when square is complete: Make Beg TR, (3DC, TR) 3 times, 3DC, join with a slip stitch in top of Beg TR _12 DC, 4 TR total_    


Round 2: (Beg TR, 2DC) in same stitch as join, **DC in next 3 stitches, (2DC, TR, 2DC) in next TR -corner made- repeat from ** 2 times more, DC in next 3 stitches, 2DC in same stitch as Beg TR, join with a slip stitch to top of Beg TR.  _28 DC, 4 TR total_



Round 3: (Beg TR, 2DC) in same stitch as join, **DC in next 7 stitches, (2DC, TR, 2DC) in next TR -corner made- repeat from ** 2 times more, DC in next 7 stitches, 2DC in same stitch as Beg TR, join with a slip stitch to top of Beg TR.  _44 DC, 4 TR total_

Round 4: (Beg DC, chain 3, DC) in same stitch as join, **Chain 1, (DC, Chain 1, skip 1 stitch) 5 times, (DC, Chain 3, DC) in corner TR -corner made- , repeat from ** 3 times, omitting final corner join with a slip stitch to top of Beg DC.  _28 DC, 4 corner chain-3 spaces, 24 chain-1 spaces total_

Round 5: (Beg DC, DC, TR, 2DC) in first chain corner space, **DC in all DC and chain spaces across to corner chain space, (2DC, TR, 2DC) in corner, repeat from ** twice more, DC in all DC and chain spaces across, join with a slip stitch to top of Beg DC  _68 DC, 4 TR total_
