Into double figures (10/25)

Boy did I tie myself up in knots trying to remember when to reverse work and when not too. The amount of thread I got through trying to get it right (ish) beggars belief.



The Pattern

Round 1

R 10 - 5 - 10. Ch 5 - 5. RW. R 10 + 5 - 10. RW. Repeat for total 10 rings and chains

Round 2

R 10 - 10. R 10 + (to chain of last round) 10. R 10 - 10. RW. Ch 15 - 15. RW.

R 10 + (to last ring made) 10. R 10 + 10. R 10 - 10 Repeat

Round 3

Join to picot on chain of last ring CH 15. RW. R 10 - 8 - 2. R 2 + ( to last ring ) 8 - 8 - 2.

R 2 + 8 - 10. RW. Ch 15 + ( to next chain of last round ) 15. Repeat.

DNC Cebelia 50. Ecru

I hope that makes sense.

LOVE this Bob!!! I got it all printed out and my thread color picked too! I am going to use one of my balls of Rubi from BJ!

Thank you for sharing it.

I made the first two rounds of this in vintage #30 red cotton with small gold beads at the center and gave it to my boss as a Christmas gift. It made a great poinsettia and I'm adding it to my list for next year.
