In Uncategorized on March 1, 2009 at 2:15 pm

Here it is, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Clue #1! Hookers, on your marks. Get set. GO! (Imaginary pistol/flare shot)

Okay, drama aside, make sure you have your hook. Check. Yarn is available. Check. The pattern. Well, partially checked, since only a part of it is available right now, eh? 😉

Here we go:

Clue #1:

Special Stitches:

4-dc cluster: (yo once on hook and complete as for a dc, leaving last loop on hook) 4 times, yo, draw through all loops on hook

3-dc cluster: (yo once on hook and complete as for a dc, leaving last loop on hook) 3 times, yo, draw through all loops on hook

Dogwood shell: (4-dc cl, ch 5) 3 times in sp indicated, 4-dc cl in same sp

Shell: (2dc, ch 2, 2dc) in space indicated

Beg-shell: ch 3, (dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in same sp as ch-3

Instructions:

Center:

Ch 8. Join w/ sl st to 1st ch, ch 3.

Rnd 1: (dc, ch 2, 2 dc) into same st as ch-3, *ch 5, sk next ch, shell in next ch. Rep from * around,  ch 5, join w/ sl st to top of ch-3. There should be 4 shells and 4 ch-5 sps.

Rnd 2: Sl st to ch-2 sp of shell, work beg shell in same sp, *ch 2, sc in ch-5 sp, ch 2, shell in ch-2 sp of shell. Rep from * around, join w/ sl st to top of ch-3.

Rnd 3: Sl st to ch-2 sp, beg-shell, *(dc, ch 5, dc) in sc, shell in ch-2 sp of next shell. Rep from * around, join w/ sl st to top of beg-shell. Note: at this point, the work will seem to cup inward, but after blocking it will lie flat.

Rnd 4: Sl st to ch-2 sp, beg-shell, *dogwood shell in next ch-5 sp, shell in next ch-2 sp. Rep from * around, join w/ sl st to top of ch-3.


That’s it for now, folks!! See you here again next week. I’ll also add answers to any questions I find throughout the week in subsequent posts so that all may see the answers.
