How to Read Crochet Charts- Cathedral Window Square

 
 
 
 
 
 
Hello, hello!
I have a wonderful cathedral window pattern read out for you today. It's for a scarf but it could also be turned into a blanket. I made several slight changes that do not alter the looks of the square.
 
So, with no further ado and with yarn of your choice and adequate hook:
 
Foundation:
Chain 6, join to make ring
Sc 8 in ring
 

 
Round 1:
Ch 3, make 3 dc in the next st, ch3 and sc in next st. Repeat this until you make full circle. You will get 4 petals.
 
 
 

Round 2:
Make 2 sl st on the beginning chain (to get closer to the top of the petal) and then make a sc.
 
 
 "Ch 3, dc3tog, ch3, sc on the ch of the other side,

 
 
ch2 and sc 1 in the chain of the other petal".
 


Repeat from " to " for all the petals.


 
 
Round 3:
Insert new color in the ch of the 1st rnd and make a dc, then "ch 4 and sc at the top of the petal.
 
 
 ch 4 and dc in the ch of the 1st row again.

 
 
 Next, ch2, make a dc in the ch of the 1st row" and repeat the pattern from " to ". 
 
 
 
When you come to the end, after you ch the last 2, sl st it in the 1st dc of the rnd.
 
 
 
 
Round 4:
"sc 2 in ch, sc 2 more on the other ch
 
 
then, in the 2 ch of the previous rnd, dc4, ch3, dc4"

 
 
 
Repeat the pattern from " to ".

 
 

 It's fairly easy and the ultimate result is gorgeous.
Enjoy making this!

I love your creations. I need to look at your charts. I don't know how to crochet or knit. I've only used the looms. My mom knitted and crocheted, but I didn't learn how. xoxo Su

This is a lovely pattern and a very helpful series, thanks for taking the time, Maya. There is something so spring-time and soft about this blanket, I really like it.

I am glad I started the series Amalia. Through it I get to try my hand at patterns I might only keep on my pinboards. I have had this one in particular for more than 3 years :)
